Is there a jersey more beautiful than the Pittsburgh Penguins' traditional black and gold? Not really, no. And considering some of the names they get to have on the backs of them, it's no wonder sales should be popular.
None more popular than Sidney Crosby, apparently: he who is selling the most jerseys out of everybody in the NHL.
Top 5 jersey sales in the NHL:— John Shannon (@JSportsnet) July 27, 2016
1. S Crosby
2. A Ovechkin
3. P Kane
4. V Taransenko
5. Ja Benn
Crosby: he's better than everyone else's favorites.
And really, that's not surprising at all. Beautiful jersey? Check. Awesome franchise? Check. Best player in the world? Check. Stanley Cup champion and Conn Smythe winner? All around awesome dude in general? Check! It would be baffling beyond belief if he wasn't number one.
Number one in jersey sales, number one on the ice, and naturally, number one in your hearts.
