Malkin Improving, Sid still not practicing

Malkin practiced with the team today, will travel to New York but will not play. He says his knee is 100% and he won't need the knee brace that's seemed to limit him. And his sinus infection is almost cleared. So that's good. Crosby is still doing off-ice work, but wasn't out there with the team today for practice. At this point he's looking further away than Malkin.

An Essay by Sid Crosby

Found an old gem written by an 18 year old Capt. Cros. It's interesting because you see the same attitude, in the essay, that Sid still has today. I think that's pretty remarkable--6 years of NHL experience and your values haven't changed since you've been drafted. That speaks volumes to just how little all the pressure and media has affected him. My favorite quote: When I was 16 and knew I might have the opportunity to get drafted, I wanted to go No. 1. My parents always told me, if you want to go first, make it easy on yourself. Don't be sitting there on draft day thinking, am I going to go No. 1, No. 2, No. 3? Make it easy for them.

A new way to look at player value

Managing a salary cap in today's NHL isn't simply about making sure you don't go over—apologies to Mr. Lamoriello—but about making sure you get proper value for your cap expenditures.
