This is a follow up of my last article entitled ” The wait is over, Now let’s forget about the rest of the NHL ”
As we already know Sidney Crosby made his return last night against a last placed team in the East, the New York Islanders. Who are 5-10-3 and a -26 in goals differential. And a team who started Anders Nilsson in net, for the first time this season.
If that above stat doesn’t sum up this whole article then you are living in a dream world.
I get it, Crosby is a great player, and great for the NHL. But for the NHL to go this low for ratings, just makes you wonder how badly they are hurting for ratings. Especially with the NBA lockout.
Crosby was supposed to make his season debut last week but obviously did not and it’s safe to say we all know why now.
The NHL made sure they got the golden child back against the lonely Islanders, where he could shine and be all over every sports radio and TV show. And may I add in the fact that Crosby has 66 points in 34 games versus the Islanders. The most against any NHL team by Crosby. He also has 21 four point games, six of them were against the Islanders.
I was so disgusted by how badly everyone was all over the golden child on twitter, facebook, and almost every other social media network out there. Most of these people didn’t even want to see reality, and see it was against the Islanders, of all pucking teams.
Even ESPN blew this way out of proportion, maybe it’s time to get a better NHL analyst on there instead of Matthew Barnaby.
The bottom line is, if the NHL want’s to expand, they need to start focusing the sport as a whole. Also this is in no way shape or form a hate Crosby article, it’s more towards the NHL and how they pursued his comeback.
