Just a few more days, and if you can keep this line of 'reasoning' going, then we can take (segments of) this forums' "Gonchar was a detriment to our PP in his last season" retardation into 2013 also! Wouldn't that be something.

I've spent too much bandwidth on the statistics before to no avail to do so again, but just for kicks; it makes A LOT more sense to say that Crosby is the problem for our PP, considering that it is has been good/great when he has been out, and dropped noticeably when he was coming back, both times.

When Sarge was there, our %s were always noticeably better than when he wasn't. Fact.

NB: and no, I do not think Crosby is a problem for our PP. We do however need to cater to the PP rather than Crosby, which is another way of saying that the primary player on our PP is Evgeni Malkin and the setup should reflect that.
