This was a nice and easy read, but still full of facts about Sidney Crosby's rookie season. Being a newer hockey fan, but still knowing who Crosby was and loving the Penguins as a team, learning a lot about how the NHL changed in 2005 to the game I know as well as little more private things about Crosby's season made this a fun read. It's not great journalism or anything earth-shattering, but worth the time of any Crosby fan.

“The morning skate was a game-day ritual dating back to the seventies, introduced in North America by the Russians, and used as an attendance taking to make sure players who may have been out carousing the night before finished sweating the alcohol out of their system before the game.” 0 likes
