Is it what is really going on?!

New York Post's Larry Brooks has written his share of controversial content. That is just a fact. But on Friday, the reporter exposed facts that some Pittsburgh Penguins fans, and hockey fans, might not be ready to digest. 

And Brooks himself says so: it is hard to believe. 

We might be witnessing the sad decline of Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. As Brooks writes: 

"The generation’s greatest player scored 26 goals in 1,111:18 of five-on-five last year in leading the Penguins to their second consecutive Stanley Cup — one for every 42:45. But this year, No. 87 has three goals in 526:42, equating to one every 175:34."

There is still some hope according to Brooks, who believes the Pens might once again come alive in the second half of the season to make a long playoff run. 

"Pittsburgh gets its bye from Jan. 8-12, the same week the Rangers, Islanders, Devils and Flyers are also on hiatus. So perhaps that will refresh the Penguins. And perhaps that will refresh Crosby, currently on a [decline] list that defies belief."

If not, it might be more and more worrisome for hockey fans across the globe.

What do you think? Is it what is really going on?!
