Crosby simply the best… again. [NHL Production stat]

Since Crosby has been reunited with Malkin, he has gone on a scoring tear, which has led to where we are now, with 3 players tied for the scoring lead. However, not only does Crosby have games in hand on both of them, his PRODUCTION (an often overlooked stat, sadly) is leaps-and-bounds ahead of the others… and, in fact, ahead, once again, of EVERY SINGLE NHL PLAYER!

Flaw in Scoring Points?

Currently in the NHL, a team gets awarded two points for winning a game in regulation, overtime, or a shootout.

Ty Conklin…. what? TY CONKLIN!?!?

With Marc Andre Fleury about a month away from returning, and Dany Sabourin on a one-way contract and Ty Conklin on a two-way contract, what do you think the Pens will/should do once Fleury comes back? And who will be the number one goalie?

For those that don’t know, Ty Conklin is currently playing as easily the best goalie in the League, going 10-0-1 in his 11 games, with a disgusting League-leading 0.949 SV% and an exceptional (especially for the East and offensive-minded, defensively-inept Penguins) League-leading 1.72GAA.
