It was, rest assured. It was under the clever guise of "well, look, he carried the team without his [faithful linemate]" well, yes, but Crosby's never had a linemate like that and he still carries the team. Crosby plays with static producer and twice-waived XXXXX XXXXXX and third liner XXXXXX XXXXXX who accepts passes about as well as Braylon Edwards.

It was a Hart-jacking of the second degree. To either Crosby or Ovechkin.

The Sedin's are very good, but a touch over-hyped, IMO. Not as great as of some of their lofty numbers would indicate. What I say isn't quantifiable, it's just a product of watching - a matter of preference I guess. They're terrific, don't get me wrong. But the praise seems to fill up above the rim sometimes I feel...
