Sidney Crosby to be named Pens captain If I were Marc Recchi, I think I would be strategically planning to break Sid’s kneecaps Tonya Harding style. You don’t name a 19 year old as captain of a team… they just don’t have enough experience leading people. 19 years old “leaders” are on studant council, are camp counselors and lifeguards, and maybe, MAYBE are captain of a college team. NOT an NHL team.
Jeebus chistos, it’s gonna be a shitstorm.
(And really, why do we need to give Crosby another chance to hog the spotlight? Whatever happened to his hardworking teammates never getting any airtime? I wish Sid would scoot over a little and let the rest of the team get a little appreciation once in a while, because he’s sure not out there doing it himself.)
This is me giving Sidney Crosby the older sister “I hope you know what you’ve gotten yourself into” look. Because dayum, dude.
