Is Sidney Crosby The 2013 NHL Mvp?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Sidney Crosby is one of those players that the NHL tries to adorn with as many awards as possible to maintain Sid the Kid as the face of the league. But injuries have played a major role in slowing Crosby down the past few years and he has not been able to contribute to the success of the Penguins as he has in the past. For the shortened 2013 season, Crosby was a cornerstone on a Pittsburgh team that is ready to compete for the Cup. But is Sid the NHL MVP?

With about a month left in this shortened season, Crosby was lost for the season with a broken jaw. Sidney Crosby is easily the unluckiest and most talented player in the NHL. Just when he feels comfortable showing off what he can do, he is sidelined for an indefinite period of time. Crosby fully expects to return next season and he is hoping to put in his first complete NHL season in a long time. But many are wondering if the body of work he has left behind makes him a candidate for the NHL MVP award.

It is safe to say that, as long as Sidney Crosby plays enough to be considered for the MVP award in a season, he will always be a candidate to win. Whether his candidacy is justified or not, it is the NHL’s way of keeping Crosby’s name and face relevant in all of its marketing endeavors. Rather than branch out and embrace any of the other superstars the league is creating, the NHL front office keeps its narrow focus on Sidney Crosby.

But everyone in the NHL front office will have to agree that Crosby is not the most valuable player in the NHL for the shortened 2013 season. It is entirely possible that his teammate Evgeni Malkin could win the award, but even Malkin will have some serious competition this season from a couple of other players.

In Chicago, Jonathan Toews remains the catalyst that keeps the Blackhawks machine going. Without Toews, the Blackhawks would not be able to accomplish everything it has been able to accomplish this year. Since the NHL MVP award is based on regular season play and the Blackhawks are the best team in the regular season, then Toews remains a favorite to win the award.

Another player at the top of the NHL MVP list is Alexander Ovechkin. While Ovechkin has shown that he is not always the ideal teammate, he has also shown that the fate of the Washington Capitals is in his hands. As the Caps continue to solidify their spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs, Ovechkin continues to solidify his standing as the MVP in the league.

In the end, it all depends on what the hockey writers think. But the one thing that everyone can already agree on is that Sidney Crosby is not the 2013 NHL MVP.
