FS,Well Bob, I don't hate Sidney Crosby. I just hate revisionist history that ignores facts. I have a degree in history, and it is one thing to have history written by the winers. It's another to have it rewritten and bastardized by the losers, which is what the NHL is trying to do, as seen in my last post. Is Crosby overrated? Absolutely. In his first game in which Malkin did not have a singlge shift on his line, Crosby had no points and was a -1 last night.
You seem to really hate Sidney Crosby. How do you feel about the Sidney for Hart Trophy campaign that is really starting to gain ground.
In regards to the Crosby for Hart campaign, it's way too early in my book to choose that. I do have one requirement that be granted before anyone ever be considered for the Hart trophy. Did the team make the playoffs?* If your team does not make the playoffs, I don't think a player should be able to be considered the most valuable. If they were all that valuable, the team would be in the post season. If The Penguins make the playoffs, I have no problem with Secondary Sid being considered for teh Hart trophy. The exact same logic applies to Ovechkin, by the way.
Thanks for the question Bob, and remember, if you have a question that you would like to see in a future edition of "Ask FS!," just drop it in the comments section, or send me an email via the link in the profile. And remember, LET'S GO CAPS!
* = Normally I would say "do something in the playoffs," but the voting is done at the completion of the regular season, before the writers association knows what happens in the playoffs.
