Sidney Crosby Biography

Sidney Crosby is an NHL player who plays for the Pittsburg Penguins.
Sidney Crosby

Birthdate: August 7, 1987
Birthplace: Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada

There is an argument all the time about who is the Greatest… especially in Sports. Who is the Greatest Golfer… Tiger Woods? Who is the Greatest Tennis Player… Roger Federer? Who is the Quarterback… Peyton Manning? In Hockey, Sidney Crosby is getting very close to being named the Greatest!

PeeWee Perfection

 


Sidney has been under a close watch of Greatness ever since he was playing PeeWee Hockey in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. He was so good that he was better than most kids many years older than him. In fact, when he was 13 years old, his family sued the Nova Scotia Minor Hockey League when they wouldn’t let him play with the 17-18 year old division.

Young Champion

 


When Sidney was drafted to the NHL at the age of 18, there was a lot of hype for him to be the Greatest Player in Hockey. He was selected 1st Overall to play for the Pittsburg Penguins who had the worst record in the previous hockey season. He has now brought the Penguins to the Stanley Cup Finals twice and last year they won it against the Detroit Red Wings.

Ovechkin Rivalry

 


The reason why Sidney is still being questioned as the Greatest Player in hockey right now is because of another great player named Alexander Ovechkin. Alex is beating Sidney in all the individual statistic records. Every year, the two of them are always leading the NHL in points, but it seems that Alex always finishes a little bit higher than Sidney.

The Big Goal

 


Many Sport Analysts don’t believe that individual statistics are the main thing that shows a players Greatness, but the only thing that matters is who wins the game. Recently at the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada, Sidney showed the World that he could lead a Nation to a Gold Medal as he scored the Big Goal that beat the Americans in overtime in the Final Game. Alex has yet to win any major title in professional sports.

The Long Road Ahead

 


Sidney is still very young and he has a long road ahead of him to achieve the status of being the Greatest Player in Hockey. Unfortunately he will never be able to break any of the records Wayne Gretzky achieved because the game has changed so much. Nonetheless, Sydney has had a great start to his career and despite what critics say about him, he will always be known as one of the Greatest Players to ever play Hockey.

Guys should be able to do cheer without being bullied. Some of my best guy friends cheer with me and it just makes the whole experience that much better. Other guys should be jealous because they don't get to help girls stretch or lift them up 20 ft into the air hahaha
