If Crosby gets 10 points in his next 5 games the next thread will be about does he win the Art Ross by playing in 60 games.
The guy has 1.35 PPG for the season so far. That is 110 point pace and he is slumping currently. Few good games and he is back on the 120-130 point pace. I think most of us here on the HF boards are expecting Crosby to be around there 120-130 if he plays healthy season.
I get that he is interesting player and the best player in the world ATM. But we really need to calm down on this Crosby hype.
BTW, has he been scoreless for the past 2 games? Also, is this 6 points in 9 games his worst streak of hockey since 09-10 season beginning?
Zero points in 4 games last spring wasn't too great
I ment regular season. Should have clarified that.
Then I'm not sure. But this is the perfect example why pace arguments can be flawed, especially in small sample sizes. If 87 had gotten hurt when he was 2 PPG, all we'd hear was how it would have stayed like that the whole season
This - Pittsburgh went from playing mostly teams that likely won't make the playoffs to playing teams that will likely make the playoffs. Did nobody see his numbers dropping once the Pens started playing some tougher opposition? Good thing all people care about are stats.
Or... Crosby is just going through a slump. He wouldn't score against any team with the way he is playing.

He's obviously over the top. Now he will get surpassed by Stamkos and Getzlaf and become the #3 center for Canada in Sochi. Hell, if Giroux keeps on scoring and let's not also forget the intangibles of Toews, Crosby might not even be in the Olympic roster.
THese streaks happen even to the best of players. Despite what some of the hardcore sid-fans thought in the previous thread it even happens to Crosby. He'll get back with a few multi point games before you know it.
1)He's playing better teams
2)Dupuis has gotten so bad not even Sid can carry him. He's constantly missing Sid when he's wide open & going offsides on rushes because all he understands is forward.
3)Sid isn't playing his best hockey. He's hitting post when in the past he would have scored & getting stopped on break-a-ways.
