NHL Network names Sidney Crosby second best forward in the NHL today

Evgeni Malkin made the top 10, too. The NHL Network has launched a countdown series to get us through the rest of August. And what better countdown to do than that of the top 20 forwards in the NHL right now? Everyone loves the best - and it's a great way to get excited to see them again, first in the World Cup of Hockey, and then in, you know, the NHL. Both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin made NHL Network's list: Malkin coming in right at number 10, with Crosby named the second best overall. Okay, we can maybe forgive NHL Network for shafting the 2016 Conn Smythe winner - he was only third...

Two recent stories from this summer stood out.that are worth sharing, the first coming from Sid's day with the Stanley Cup last month.

WATCH: Sidney Crosby plays 2-on-2 shinny, is better than everyone

Of course, he's better than everyone in most hockey situations. The offseason seems to stretch on forever. Probably not so much for the Pittsburgh Penguins, since they were one of two teams to play into June; and especially not for those of them who will be competing in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. Still, though, that does leave a couple of months in between meaningful games. It's a time for training - though you've gotta spread that out and still make it fun. It appears Sidney Crosby is doing just that, as he and seven other players took a break to go all-in on 2-on-2 shinny. You can...

How Crosby and Malkin can affect games even without scoring a lot

A statistical review of the Penguins vs. Capitals series shows how Pittsburgh star forwards Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin can greatly impact games even when they aren't getting goals and assists. One of the most pivotal series for the Pittsburgh Penguins road to the Stanley Cup was in the second round against the Washington Capitals. The Caps were the league's best regular season team, and also the only team to hang with the Pens all playoffs long when it came to 5v5 shots. Pittsburgh found a way to win the series but one thing that stood out was the lack of production from their top...

Penguins' fit for Chris Kunitz as simple as looking at last season

Chris Kunitz' Penguins tenure has seen him skate most often with Sidney Crosby, and when that hasn’t been possible he’s flanked Evgeni Malkin. That is where he finished last season, skating on Malkin’s left wing. But can that continue to…

2015-16 Pensburgh Recap: Sidney Crosby

The captain's roller coaster season mirrored fortunes of the team with a frustrating start, followed by a red hot finish culminating in the glory of the Stanley Cup Age and Contract Status Age: The kid is a kid no longer, turning 29 years old next week with his famous 8/7/87 birthday. Luckily the Penguins have Crosby locked up contract wise for the next 9 seasons through the 2024-25 season at what else but an $8.7 salary cap hit. Preseason Expectations As usual, expectations were sky-high for Crosby to rack up a bunch of points after the summer 2015 trade to bring Phil Kessel to the...
