Sidney Crosby, Pittsburgh Penguins -- Few people will dispute that when he's healthy, Crosby is the best player in hockey. The challenge for No. 87 as he enters his age-25 season is twofold: He has to show that he's capable of playing a full season at his usual high level after missing all but 22 games since Jan. 5, 2011 -- and he and the Penguins will have to prove they can mesh again after last spring's playoff debacle. A healthy Crosby integrated into the lineup could be the difference between a playoff team and a Cup winner. I would sell. While it's hard to disagree with any of the analysis presented, when I think "hot seat", I think "dude who better shape up or he's in trouble". Sidney Crosby, he of the new 13 year contract, has never been more secure as a Penguin. Even if Crosby doesn't play in a full season, he's still going to be regarded the same way he is now.
