Heck, the Pens didn't need Crosby to get a 4/5 seed either. Having him back for the playoffs sure boosts their Cup hopes, though.
As I said in my other post, it would obviously be a plus if he came back. Getting a player back like him would be a plus for any team. I certainly am not hoping he remains injured. What I am saying is that they have shown they can win without him (i.e. they don't NEED him).
