Crosby Returning
« on: November 10, 2011, 08:29:28 AM »
It sounds like Crosby's return to the Penguins lineup is imminent, and could come as soon as tomorrow at home against the Stars.

We all know what he's gone through these past 10 months, and there is likely to be a bit of transition shaking the rust off and getting back into the swing of things. 

Now, the season is not even a quarter of the way through and the highest point getter at the moment is Kessel with 22.

Question is -- can Crosby still take home the Art Ross?  He was producing at a 130-point clip last year which would have hammered D. Sedin's 104 which he won with.  There are factors working against Crosby, but let's face it, this is Crosby we're talking about.  If anyone can do it in today's NHL, he's the one.

I think he'll be one of the leading scorers, but he won't win the Art Ross.

I have Malkin & Staal on my team with Crosby. I'm just under 1100 pts out of first. I need SC to be lights out - Lemieux '92-93 esque...

I'm just in a small group and sit 7th of 9 and really, I'm not that far back. This year I figured screw it, I'm taking risks... Crosby, Kesler was (was hurt), Havlat (was hurt) Gaborik (fragile) just to name a few... We'll see how it goes.
