odd thing is, I think AO play far more a Canadian style hockey than Crosby. And I did indeed play in the Empire League, a Western Conference team to be more specific.

yeah, you'd have to get a really good pair of D on AO to really stop him. Montreal started to with Gil, but then he just switched wing and made it that much harder on them. You need to defend Crosby, too, but then you also have to take care of Malkin - that other 100 points/season guy. edit: Crosby was brilliant during the opening round, absolutely no doubt about it. Totally a > over AO this post season. Still, Semin, Greene, Fleischman, wake the hell up!
