i found that source about crosby and recchi
Crosby has endured it all with a veteran's poise and perspective, taking over as the spokesman for the Penguins before Lemieux called it a career and handling off-ice issues that arose with Recchi, a linemate of Crosby's prior to being dealt to Carolina last Thursday with whom Crosby worked wonderfully on the ice.
This is a suck job of an article - I think crosby yaps a bit too much yet - he's really cut down though through the second half (he got one last night for barkin). I don't know if he needs to be benched, but i also attrib it to him being 18.
He has improved at faceoffs tremendosly though, and has really become better at working in his own zone.
