Best Assist Ever.....? C'mon

I will be the first to admit that the display of skill and determination to keep the puck from Jason Spezza was very impressive, but was it "the best assist I have ever seen" [Bob Mackenzie], no it certainly was not.

Lets take a look at the BEST ASSIST EVER.......

Spezza did a great job, refusing to allow Crosby to get to the net.  87 was 100% contained and eventually had to pass it off to the point....seems pretty standard.  The Great Dane had a mind lapse in going to the front of the net where there were already three other Senators. He left the point wide open and allowed Letang to float the one through.  I don't want to be too hard on the Prince cause he did prevent Crosby from walking out of the corner and may have stopped the "best GOAL ever" from happening.

I will however allow myself to deem this "the best working of the corner" I have seen in along time.
AND yes that does include you  Jiri Tulusty.

My thoughts exactly! The Crosby-Love-In 2010 is really taking a toll on the media (and on some fans).
