We don't see him much anymore, which is great. Thank God. He can stay in the east. We'll stay in the west. He's the best player in the league. It's got to be fun to watch. I know it's not fun for us to play against. The reason why he's the best player in the world--yea, he's talented, yea he's skilled, but there's other guys who are just as talented and skilled as he is--but it's determination. It's determination on the puck. He never gives up on a puck. He works hard on the puck and that's why he's the best in the world.Pretty much sums it up.
On Wednesday December 1, Sidney Crosby was named the NHL Player of the Month for the month of November. Sid had 26 points (12 goals, 14 assists) in 14 games and finished the month with an active 13-game point streak, the longest in the league this season and the third-longest of his career.
Hard to imagine that a guy who has won a Stanley Cup, a gold medal, the league MVP, been named the youngest team captain ever, is the face of the league and just was named Player of the Month may be underrated. Well, if he isn't universally recognized as the best player in the world, then he is.
Enjoy the highlights and make sure you are paying attention when the Penguins play. Even the greatest players don't play at this consistently high level very often.
