That is fine, but this comment (from Tim Boughton whoever that is) got me fired up:
I feel like Crosby's dominance over the league has faded in peoples' minds while he has been on the shelf for that year and a half. I can't wait to watch him drop a deuce on the league over the course of this season and re-establish himself as a dominant center in the NHL.
I am hoping he puts up a 50+ goal, 120+ point season and returns to where he was just before his concussion for a whole season.
I think Malkin can be better than Crosby overall if he keeps working this hard, but ultimately it's a stupid thing to debate. But this article is further proof ESPN is clueless when it comes to hockey. "Neal just as good as Crosby but in a different way"?? That's absurd. Other than his wrist shot there is nothing Neal does as well as Crosby, let alone better than Crosby. Greasy is the man and I hope he stays here a long time, but comparing him to Sid is just dumb.
