Crosby’s Potential Fire Hydrants

Nathan Weselake




Glen Sather once said a fire hydrant could get 50 goals playing with Wayne Gretzky.

Somewhat insulting perhaps to the Great One’s wingers over the years but we get his point. Now, if a fire hydrant gets 50 with Gretzky what would one get with Crosby? Well, thanks to the injury to Pascal Dupuis and the absolutely decimated Penguins roster – we actually get to find out. 


Here is a list of the fire hydrants vying for the most coveted wing in hockey.


Joe Vitale


I remember Joe when the two of us ran a racket down on the Eastside. The son of hard working Italian immigrants, Joe was always one to make the most of his opportunities and so I like his chances here. If he gets a few games with Sid, he should get a few points and will certainly add to some of his multi-cat stats. It’s only been one game at the time of writing but Frozen Pool showed Vitale as having the early inside track on Dupuis’ spot – and even Sunday when James Neal tallied five points – Vitale saw almost as many shifts there.
