he did enough overall with limited linemates and top defenders on him...not complaining one ounce with him at all. thanks Alex for being American!!!
Reminds me a bit of Pittsburgh's stanley Cup team.


Crosby got all of the attention, Malkin was free to generate scoring in that space and Jordan Staal's line would throw in some valuable and necessary goals here and there. Say what you want about finding Crosby a winger, or giving Galchenyuk better linemates, spreading the scoring out can often be more effective.
