    Kind of funny that this guy's name is "voiceprint" and he can't even conjugate verbs.

    The Crosby and leadership thing for some reason is an going conversation piece. It's being reborn by the Penguins struggles recently where we lost 5 in a row and Malkin comes back in the lineup and suddenly we win 2 in a row and score 5 goals per game.

    I don't think that there's really any "leader" per se on this team. I thin they all sort of rally together. I think someone like Max Talbot is as much of a leader as a vet like Bill Guerin or Crosby or Malkin seems to be on the ice.

    As for Captaincy, Crosby is comfortable with that role. You couldn't put someone like Malkin for instance in as a Captain, not with his strugglesof English and probably not with his lack of comfort. I think sid does just fine as a Captain and having guy s like Geno and Gonch as alternates is pretty solid as well

    People will question him; sure. He's young, he's in the media more than other NHL players, and he was injured and boxed up during part of the Final without hindering the outcome by much. There is no doubt the Pens have a really diverse mix of talent, completely aside from him. That's what makes them a good team, obviously.

    I don't like the concept of Crosby as a super star player, myself- it has done nothing for Ovechkin. I think he would be thrust there even if Malkin were the captain because personalities get attention.

    But there is an undeniable level of absurdity to the original post which was my real comment.

    I wonder who voiceprint would consider a better leader for this obviously commercial event??
    The Olympic Torch ceremony duties aren't given to the biggest hockey leader but someone with a) recognition and b) a recent or important accomplishment.

    Check and check.

    Crosby was not doing as much as Malkin

    I agree in some respects, definitely. But you have to consider that the Olympics are commercial, are money-making and are being held in Canada where Crosby is native.

    I don't, though I don't watch the Capitals often and could be way off, see him winning a Stanley Cup soon. I would guess the Pens will take another one before Overchkin gets a chance at one.

    That's my point.
