Sid the Kid
The first mention of Sidney Crosby on this site was October 6, 2003. I opened with "Sidney Crosby. Are you familiar with that name? You will be."
I wrote that entry after reading a quote from The Great One himself. Wayne Gretzky said Crosby was the best player he'd seen since Mario Lemieux and Sid the Kid was only sixteen at the time. That's a boatload of pressure.
Crosby is now 19 and he's leading the NHL in points with 47. Only one other player led the NHL in points as a younger man, and his name was Wayne. There's really no telling how good Crosby will get. He's on pace to have the most points in a season since Mario.
There will never be another Gretzky, but it sure is fun watching the tremendous progress of #87. Go get 'em, Sid.
