Just a few weeks ago bloggers, reporters and analysts alike were all writing and debating whether the Penguins should trade Sidney Crosby. Topics like what would the Penguins even get in return were discussed.
Some said Crosby was done and his return value would be minimal.
They were all wrong, so beautifully wrong.
It took Crosby a few games to get out of his, shall we say, Mike Johnston induced depreciation. As soon as Sullivan allowed Crosby to get back to his type of game, the flood gates have opened. Like Kramer busting through Jerry's door on Seinfeld.
With Mike Johnston as the head coach, Sidney Crosby recorded just 21 points in 28 games. That included just five multi-point games and one multi-goal game.
Since Sullivan became the bench boss on December 12th, 2015, Crosby has recorded 26 points in 20 games. That includes 9 multi-point games, three multi-goal games and his first hat trick since 2013 (before Johnston became head coach).
Since Sidney Crosby is back in all his glory, lets take this time to raise a glass (if you're of age of course!) to all the reporters, analysts, and bloggers who thought Sidney Crosby was done. The jokes on you.
