Crosby has endured it all with a veteran's poise and perspective, taking over as the spokesman for the Penguins before Lemieux called it a career, and also handling off ice issues that arose along with Recchi, a linemate of Crosby's prior to being dealt to Carolina last Thursday with whom Crosby worked wonderfully on the ice.
Just with the simple addition of the word "along" the ambiguity of the sentence fades away.
Okay, this guy is a professional writer. He knows how to write and he wrote what he wanted to write. If an "along" was needed, it would be there. There is no way you can take what he wrote and just add a word that COMPLETELY changes the meaning and then say "this is what he meant." If that is what he meant, that is what he would have typed. Until I see a correction in the Post-Gazette or something of the like, I have to go with what was originally printed.
