Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins is on one of the covers for this week’s Sports Illustrated, which is obviously good news for the New York Islanders ( cough, jinx, cough ).
Here’s Mr. Intensity:
While we're intrigued to learn this “amazing thing,” there’s really no arguing the “most amazing player” part. Which is a nice down-shift on the hyperbole engine after that “ The Chicago Blackhawks Dragged The Lifeless Carcass Of The NHL Back From Hell ” cover from earlier this year.
This is Sidney Crosby’s sixth SI cover . He had two dedicated to the 2010 Winter Olympics; one after the Penguins won the 2009 Stanley Cup, titled “The Kid And The Cup”; another on a commemorative issue for that victory; and a cameo appearance on a Detroit Red Wings-centric cover in 2009.
The other regional cover this week is on Steph Curry, and it’s very yellow.
