Because he is so talented, fans may forget that speed is one of the many weapons that helps make Sidney Crosby such a special talent.
Crosby burst onto the NHL scene in 2005 when he was the top overall selection in the NHL Entry Draft. He didn't disappoint, scoring 39 goals and 102 points as a rookie.
Crosby's quickness helps him avoid defenders and get open for quality scoring chances. He tallied a career-high 51 goals in 2010 to tie for the Rocket Richard Trophy as the league's top goal scorer.
In 2009, Crosby helped lead the Penguins to a Stanley Cup title, making him the youngest player to be captain of a Cup winning team.
He has already won a Hart Trophy, an Art Ross Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Award in his young NHL career.
In 2010, Crosby scored the game winning goal in overtime to clinch the gold medal for Canada at the Olympics in Vancouver.
Injuries have limited Crosby to 63 games over the past two seasons, but when he's healthy, he's acknowledged as the best hockey player in the world.
At 25, Crosby is just entering his prime and he should have plenty of time to add to his already impressive list of NHL accomplishments.
