Sidney Crosby and the Stanley Cup. Again. - MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mario Lemieux. Wayne Gretzky. Bobby Orr. Sidney Crosby.

That's the way Jim Rutherford views it.

Crosby won his second consecutive Conn Smythe Trophy as postseason MVP on Sunday during the Penguins' 2-0, Stanley Cup-clinching victory in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final at Bridgestone Arena. Along the way, his general manager said that Crosby must now be considered not just a future Hall of Famer, but an all-time great.
