Crosby: A 40-goal guy?
A coworker here at The Globe sent me an email yesterday, saying he'd bet someone that Sidney Crosby would win the Rocket Richard Trophy within five years.
"Do you think I've just thrown away $20?"
Yes, yes he did.
TSN's Darren Dreger hits the nail on the head today, pointing out that Crosby's style, while terrific, isn't about putting the puck in the net. At least, not with the frequency that Alex Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk and others do.
It makes me wonder though: At what level does Crosby top out in the goal-scoring department? Will he ever be more than a 40-goal guy?
