I'm gonna take a dive off the unrealistic tree here...

In the shortened season, most people are out of shape, but Crosby comes out swinging. Crosby nets 50 goals in 48/50 games. Becomes the first player to get 50 in 50 since Hull in 92. Joins the elite club of Gretz, Lemieux, Bossy, Hull, and Richard. People go crazy, but contribute the crazy production to other players being out of shape. Crosby wins the Art Ross, Lindsay, and Hart in sweeping fashion.

Vokoun takes a near 50/50 split with MAF, which pressures Fleury to play his best season ever.

Despite the crazy point production and good goaltending, Pens get 4th in the East and play the Flyers in the first round. Pens tops the Flyers in 7, Canes in 5, Boston in 6, and finally the Blues in 6. Tarensenko plays at an elite level in the finals and Crosby scores a few game winners, but the Conn Smythe goes back to Malkin with his beast-mode play in the playoffs. Even though Crosby is glad that the Pens won, he is disturbed that he let another Conn Smythe get past him. He trains even harder for the next season...
