Happy Birthday, Sidney Crosby!
By all accounts, Sidney Crosby has had a life-long love
affair with hockey. Stories abound of Sidney as young as age two being able to
hold a stick properly while hitting a tennis ball. At age ten he scored an
incredible 159 goals in 55 games playing hockey in his hometown of Cole
Harbour, Nova Scotia. He had a season point total of 280 points. While at
Shattuck- Saint Mary’s Prep School in Minnesota, Sidney set new scoring records
by getting 72 goals and 110 assists for a total of 182 points in just 57 games.
He was also the only player under the age of eighteen to play in the Canadian
Junior Hockey tournament and the youngest to ever score a goal in the
championship. By the 2004-2005 season, Crosby was considered the best hockey
prospect in the world.

Fleury got a vote of confidence from Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma...
ESPN's Paul Grant's made some...Interesting..."Who was better in their prime?" choices in pitting Wendel Clark against David Clarkson and then Wayne Gretzky versus Sidney Crosby, but today, he at least offers a pair of players who were contemporaries at one time in Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy: Continue reading "This ESPN ‘Which player was better in their...
