Today Gabriel Landeskog was named captain of the Colorado Avalanche. This makes him the youngest captain in NHL history. Of course, Sidney Crosby once held that title. Big deal. That means nothing. Younger and younger people are accomplishing things every day. The Crosby fact should be noted a a minor footnote in this story but, of course, some people want to make the story about Sidney Crosby.
People like Rob Rossi.
Crosby had Hart, Ross, playoff appearance on resume before trading A for C in 2007 #pens

But that wasn't all. Rossi also made a point of telling this fact to other reporters on Twitter.
For what it's worth, Rossi then pointed out that he was "just providing historic context" and that the Avalanche "made [a] wise choice" by selecting Landeskog as captain.
We get that Rossi covers the Penguins and that covering the Pens during the summer with a lockout...
