So, hot on the heels of reports the Penguins powerplay is more efficient without Sidney Crosby, comes more data showing the Penguins, on paper, are a better team without Crosby. Bob Smizik jokes the Penguins should trade Crosby, but obviously it seems to be a case of teammates watching Crosby instead of looking to make plays. I’m not sure how you work past that, though. He’s Sidney Crosby. People are going to stare.
Also, do the Kings finally have a startable goalie in rookie Erik Ersberg?
Probably not. Nothing against Ersberg. I just think the Kings are goalie jinxed.
