Pros & Cons Of Crosby's Return
|For The Lady Readers of AHF|
Among all of the positive things Crosby brings to the game, there is also a handful of negative. I think it's important that we examine both the pros, and cons of Sidney Crosby's return to the NHL.
As always, I've prepared a quick list of these pros and cons to break down Crosby's long awaited return to the game:
Pro: With Crosby back in the lineup for the Pens, they're sure to make a deep run into the playoffs this year.
Con: Having to see close up, HD shots of Crosby's upper lip for two months in April & May.
Pro: Having one of the most entertaining and talented players in the league back on your tv making huge plays.
Con: Having one of the most entertaining and talented players in the league back on your tv selling you coffee, equipment, shoes, bread, and gatorade during every intermission.
Pro: Watching our Olympic hero get back out on the ice and take his first shift in the Black & Gold.
Con: Being distracted while Crosby is on the ice because NBC has replaced their 'shift clock' timer with a 'hit to the head' counter for Crosby shifts.
Pro: It's always great to see such a classy guy return from injury and get back into the game he loves.
Con: As you read all of this, he probably just scored two goals against your favourite team. Note if you are a Maple Leafs fan multiple this number by an additional two.
Pro: Being able to once again take in the magic and sick moves that Crosby brings to the ice every game.
Con: Having this magic ruined when Pierre Mcguire turns it into some sort of strange sexual fantasy.
Pro: Sales of Crosby jerseys are almost guaranteed to rise which is great for the NHL and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Con: You cannot exchange your Jeff Carter Blue Jackets jersey for a Crosby jersey.
