Sidney Crosby returns to NHL action for the first time since January 5 of this year. Needless to say, we're both really happy (one overwhelmingly more than the other). It's been a while since Sid has played an NHL game and with all the concussion treatments, it's unlikely that he's heard what's going on in the league since he's been out. So we've compiled a helpful list for his use:
Then: Plays on a horrible team. Is evil.
Now: Plays on an awesome team. Is evil.
Then: Ex-NHLer. Hey, whatever happened to that guy?
Now: Ex-NHLer. Now rules the league.
Then: Phil Kessel is awesome
Now: Phil Kessel is awesomest
Now: oh... hey Atlanta!
Then: omg, Luuuu!
Now: It is now acceptable to laugh while calling Roberto Luongo a "good goalie"
Toronto Maple Leafs
Then: awesome team but, uh, crappy.
Then: the very definition of awesomeness.
Now: the very definition of jerk-iness.
