Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon are this summer's top buddy duo

Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon, both #1 overall picks out of tiny Cole Harbour Nova Scotia have teamed up this summer with the mission to apparently put a smile on every single person's face in Canada. Two good guys doing good things. Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon have a lot in common. They're from the same little town of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia and they both are former NHL #1 overall draft picks. That's a pretty cool and unique bond. Despite Crosby being 8 years (!!) older than MacKinnon, the two have formed a friendship recently as well. They're regular summer workout partners...

Can Chris Kunitz bounce back?

The Chris Kunitz factor might be one of the biggest for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2015-16 For years Chris Kunitz has faithfully rode shotgun with Sidney Crosby. Though he hasn't been the biggest, strongest, fastest or most skilled, Kunitz has been a terrific linemate for Crosby. He's been tenacious along the boards, a ferocious forechecker, an under-rated passer and had the hands enough to convert scoring chances into goals. From 2010/11 - 2013/14 Kunitz scored 229 points, third most of any Penguin (behind Crosby and Evgeni Malkin). And Kunitz's 106 goals were best on the team for that...
