Fantasy Update

Mar 23, 2017
Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey
Hockey fans were treated to another gorgeous offering from Connor McDavid last night. While we were all out singing Sidney Crosby’s — very, very well deserved — praises, McDavid put up a two-point night and added another fabulous goal to his increasing repertoire. Wednesday was just the latest example of this back and forth between Crosby and McDavid, and another piece of ammunition for fans in their debate over who’s better.

Give him all of the trophies. Should Sidney Crosby or Connor McDavid win the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s MVP? What a debate, huh? Crosby’s trying his damnedest to end it. If not on the scoreboard, then on your highlight reels. Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins visited the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday, and Crosby was fired up for some reason.

Admiral’s mailbag: How did Bruce Cassidy’s magic wear off?

It’s mailbag time! To submit questions, email letitbleedrearad@gmail.com or Tweet @RearAdBsBlog and include question, name, and city/state. Let’s get after it … Sidney Crosby has 42 goals in 74 games so he’ll need to finish with a goal a game for the last eight games to hit 50 for the second time. Will he get […]

Crosby's a lightning rod, but there's almost nothing to his slash on Methot

Crosby's a lightning rod, but there's almost nothing to his slash on Methot

Sidney Crosby left a guy's fingertip destroyed but it speaks more to the NHL's culture on slashing than it does to Crosby himself being dirty If you like the internet and bashing Sidney Crosby, what a week it's been for you! Crosby put himself in the spotlight when he slashed the hand of Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot and the result was a bloody mess that left Methot's fingertip a nub. You've likely seen the image and it's gross so I'm not going to plaster it here. Do a google search if you want, at your own peril. Anyways, here's the play in question (be ready to stop it at 25 seconds if...

Watch Penguins captain Sidney Crosby slash Marc Methot’s fingertip off

Hey, so this is gross. No, like, this is really gross. I’m warning you. (Please don’t say that I didn’t warn you.) Late in the first period of Thursday’s head-to-head between the Senators and visiting Penguins, Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby hacked at Ottawa defenseman Marc Methot as Methot entered into the Pittsburgh zone on a four-on-four […]

Mark Madden: Best leader in hockey? It's no myth: Sidney Crosby

Mark Madden: Best leader in hockey? It's no myth: Sidney Crosby

The myth of leadership helps further the myth of Jonathan Toews, a real good hockey player but not remotely comparable to Sidney Crosby. Heck, Toews isn’t even the best player on his team.

Evolution of ‘Sid and the Kids’

Last fall, when the Pittsburgh Penguins’ first line started heating up, people started debating what to nickname them. After all, the 2016 playoffs had the HBK line; this line deserved a catchy moniker as well. The line, made up of Sidney Crosby and two players starting their first full seasons in the NHL, came to […]

Morning Skate Memo: Pens prep for Sens with new No. 1 line

Judging by his decisions at Thursday’s morning skate at the Canadian Tire Centre, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan still believes in Scott Wilson’s abilities to serve as a top-six forward. Without Jake Guentzel (concussion), Bryan Rust (upper body) and Carl Hagelin (lower body) at his disposal, Sullivan turned to Wilson as the choice for Sidney Crosby’s […]

Crosby has been good all season. With still 10 games remaining, he’s reached the 40-goal mark for just the second time in his illustrious career. He leads […]
