Former NHL coach Pat Burns says that while Sidney Crosby may one day be the best player in hockey, that honour currently belongs to Vincent Lecavalier.
“He’s the best hockey player in the National Hockey League by far,” Burns said Wednesday while promoting a prostate cancer fundraiser.
“I saw a game in Tampa when he played against Crosby and he just put on a show. You could see Crosby thinking ‘I’m going to be good like that one day.’ He’s big, strong, he can skate, he can score and I’d say he’s probably the best hockey player in the league.
“And him and Marty St. Louis are probably the best duo in the NHL.”
