Sidney Crosby Having A Gretzky Type Year

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

Forget the shortened season, what Sidney Crosby is managing this hockey year is stunningly comparable to anything anyone has accomplished in hockey history.

You can add it up.

Crosby is scoring at 1.62 points per game, a number that would give him 133 points were this a full season of play. And while that doesn’t seem anywhere near Wayne Gretzky’s record total of 215 points in a season or Mario Lemieux’s best number at 199 points, it does when you take into account the difference in the game Crosby is playing.

continued plus some hockey notes...

This is when you’ll know that Nazem Kadri has truly arrived: When he can put up numbers when other teams are game-planning for him

Good point from Simmonds.
