Pens are not a European style team. I can understand why you'd think that from watching Crosby or Malkin highlights but the team is coached by a former grinder that likes a North-South and forecheck etc. system. Crosby actually likes to play along the boards like a grinder a lot of the time. Regardless, I think Iginla still has the wheels to play with Crosby or Malkin no matter what the system is.
