With only 2 goals and 5 assists through 14 games, it has been an exceptionally slow start for Sidney Crosby this year in the NHL.
This has led to discussions about whether or not it’s time for the Penguins to look to trade the superstar player, who is arguably the sport’s brightest star.
Stan Fischler of The Hockey News suggested that the time is now to trade “Sid the Kid” as he is “on the downside of his peak.” He then noted that the Canadiens, Maple Leafs and Kings are realistic trade partners.
So what if number 87 ended up pulling on a new jersey? For this simulation, I moved Crosby to Montreal, Toronto and Los Angeles in three separate 2015-2016 season simulations to see how he would do.
Does Sidney help the Canadiens get over the hump? Or help accelerate the Leafs rebuild? Or help write the next page in the Kings dynasty? Read on to find out.
