“I want to help you, you know, because you were an incredible player.”
After finishing second in his second season in the NHL in 2013-14, Sidney Crosby’s performance in 2014-15 left many of us wondering if a new Crosby would emerge.
But no one expected to see Crosby so quietly put a bow on the 2014-15 campaign by producing a career-high in goals, leading the Penguins to win their 10th Stanley Cup playoff series in the age of Crosby scoring to become one of the top goal scorers to ever play the game.
A year off the ice, a year to reflect on the season, and an offseason full of growth, let’s take a closer look at where Sid Crosby was this season, in a season in which everyone from Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero to player development reps to Crosby himself could see signs of improvement.
Let’s just start from the top.

2015-16: 78 Goals, 90 Points, plus-6, 6 PIM
For the 21st time in 20 NHL seasons, Sidney Crosby recorded at least 70 NHL goals and at least 90 points. He had two years of 60 goals and 90 points before this season, but his first full campaign where both these goals were set: 73 and 90 in 2016-17.
But even with all the extra goals added to his totals, it wasn’t enough for Crosby to take the honors this season. He’s not the player that he’s always been, but you have to look at the year he’s actually played to be able to compare. Crosby had a career-low minus-25 on the season and finished just 28th by a wide margin, and his worst game last year was against the Buffalo Sabres when he had four shots (that’s 10 less than last week against the Winnipeg Jets) and no points, to which he replied “you don’t give up 4 shots to the Sabres and nothing more and no more. That’s what it meant.”
Crosby has continued to grow and this year, it showed early in the season; in October, Crosby was averaging more goals per game than the last two seasons combined and by November, Crosby was leading the league in goals per game with 0.99, his best
