Morning Skate: Good looks

Some things just look wrong.

Happy Thursday!

I was reading a blurb yesterday about how eventually, the Penguins and Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin are going to have to make some difficult decisions when a rebuild approaches.

It made me think about how weird it would be to see Crosby or Malkin in a different jersey, given how long they’ve been associated with the Penguins.

That, in turn, reminded me of how Henrik Lundqvist will be playing for a team that isn’t the Washington Capitals next season, and that’s certainly going to look weird.

To a lesser degree, Alex Pietrangelo playing for Not St. Louis will be a weird look too.

Sometimes, a player and a team just “go together” so well for so long that the player will never look right in a different jersey.

What’s on tap for today?

Today’s highlight

Speaking of Malkin, remember this weird beef? That’s a lot of talent in one fight.

Today’s discussion topic

Other than Bobby Orr in a Blackhawks jersey, which player/team comes to mind when you think of “that just doesn’t look right”?
