    5 games played and hasn't scored a goal yet. I thought he would come in blazing hot because of how well he played in the playoffs but no cigar yet. What's going on?

    I wouldn't blame him for not giving a single **** about the RS though because he's a champion, and champions wait for the real games.

    He’s not playing as hard in the regular season so he can play better in the post season.

    He looked good in the playoffs because flyers goalies can't stop a beach ball.

    What's up with X?

    It's only been a few games, I am not too worried just yet. A lot of surprising starts around the league so far.

    X is playing though an injury currently and has had terrible shooting luck.

    If Malkin and Kessel adopt the same mentality, the Penguins may not make the playoffs at all.

    So weird that Malkin and Kessel had far worse stats than Crosby. Did they get to face a different, better goalie when they stepped on the ice? :rolleyes:

    ...Or could it be that Crosby just played at a really high level in the playoffs?

    This will be HF's annual Demise of Sidney Crosby thread. Whether the OP intended or not.

    I'll see your "What's up with Crosby?" and raise you a "What's up with Stamkos"?

    And Hall hasn't scored a goal yet and Palmieri has seven. It's very early.

    He looked good in the playoffs because his name is Sidney Crosby.
