He's already lived up to the hype.

The stats are very impressive and they don't even come close to telling the story. You have to watch the Kid play to get a true sense of just how great he is (and can become).

He is so far above the pack in terms of talent and hockey sense; if hockey were as popular as football, he'd be nationally recognized as Peyton-like great. And, he's 20.

He's on another planet, like Gretzky was.

He is great to watch as are the Penguins. If given the opportunity I recommend going to a game when the Penguins are in town.

BTW, I saw them in Raleigh a couple weeks back.

I'm a Sid-hater, but the list of forwards who I think are better than him is down to about three.

Ovechkin
Iginla
Thornton

Sorry Mike, I know you love your Flames, and I am a big fan of Iginla, but he doesn't belong in the same conversation.

Eh, fair enough. I believe he does.

Main point, though: Crosby is dirty.

When asked where New Jersey is, Sidney Crosby picks up the sports section and points to the top of the standings.

True Story.

He's a little girl.

But I can't wait to watch him play the Flames this week.

Sid and the Penguins have revitalized my interest in hockey.

True story.

I have gotten really interested in hockey. And Sidney Crosby has nothing to do with it.

True story!

Kovalchuk is a beast.
