With so many people on here being upset a few years ago when Chelios skipped out on the handshakes, I find it odd that so many of you "dont give a f***." In the long run does it matter? no. but its what you do. You should shake hands with the whole team. I dunno. part of me cares part of me doesnt.

Can anyone confirm that he didn't shake our hands?

If so what classlessness...

Oh jesus...

You know what else is classy? Losing with some dignity.

Just sayin'...

Why should we care? Crosby didn't shake hands with everyone. So what.

You complain alot! Half the Wings didn't shake hands w/ the Ducks during the 03 season. I am sure you laughed it up!

Have to agree.

I agree, but, in that case, what were 20,000 fans doing cheering out of their minds as Crosby was injured, and barely could get off the ice. Doesn't make us too classy either!

I figured he was mobbed by the media so tahts why he missed the handshake line, what I did notice though was Franzen came back into the line to check on him I think that showed some real class Franzen didnt need to do that.

Ok I was there, and it wasn't so much that he didn't shake their hands because he was celebrating it was how he did it. When everyone broke off from the celebration to shake hands sid was the last to do so. He then started towards Lids, looked at him, then turned off to hug the trainers. Lids and the team waited for a while then left. To look at them then basically say, "hey wait a little bit". Sid only got the last 4 or 5 of the wings.

I didnt say you had to care. I simply said that a lot of people on here were upset when Chelios didnt shake hands. If you dont care thats great.

The rational thing would be to put someone on ignore if day after day they spew the same emotion. Everyone is upset after tonight. We all want to blame or lash out at someone else. It'll pass.

Ya, I saw Franzen, he is classy. Be honest though, hockey die hards like myself, and if you are, you've seen Crosby interviewed a million times, he has never been anything but first class. Who knows what happened, but, if he had a history, or was a jerk, maybe there is something to whine about, but, come on, I hate to admit it too, but he's a pretty classy young dude. As for us, I refuse to bash us, it was a great season, I think we're a little spoiled. Also, seemed like our legs were a little heavy besides the opening and closing rushes. Hard to look for a bunch of answers, there aren't, we went to the finals again, just need a little off season tinkering, and we'll be right back!

The apathetic attitude in this thread surprises me. I fully understand that the handshake line doesn't change the loss, doesn't make it easier to accept, and "doesn't matter" in the grand scheme of things, but it's what good sportsmen do. It's a timeless show of respect for both teams. I agree that Nick Lidstrom would never be too distracted to shake the other teams' hands and congradulate them. If he failed to acknowledge the worthiness of his opponent, he would not be the phenomonal player and well-respected person that he is.

And I don't say this just because it's Crosby who skipped out, but since it is Crosby and he is "The Face of the NHL," is that really the message the NHL wants to send? So all of the kids who idolize Crosby should think now that it's ok to not shake your opponents' hands becuase you won and you were too busy celebrating?

Flame me if you want to, I guess, but I was brought up to respect the other team in both victory and defeat.

No one gives a f***. It wasn't personal.

Fleury showed up. The Wings did not.

Pittsburgh won 4 out of 5 games after going down 2-0. They deserved to win. Detroit needs some roster changes, that's all.

Great series. Great season.


Amen. You are a true Wings fan. Unlike most of the other pretenders on here. Great season and a great Finals both this year and last year. Wings should hold their heads high. I'm sure you can agree the refs sucked both years unfortunately. Hossa was a huge disappointment for you guys and in the end I think you probably would've won this thing without him as hard as that is to believe. He is just a complete gutless bum and there is no way you should resign him after his performance in the playoffs and the Finals. Hopefully he never wins a Cup and rots the rest of his career in Florida or Los Angeles.

I ended up going over that handshake on the DVR as soon as I saw someone post about it. "Skipping" the handshake is vastly different than missing most of it (not all), especially when you're getting congratulated by the coaching staff and players coming out of their handshakes alike. He is young, after all, and being human, sometimes players can get caught up in the moment. Turning this into an issue of "class" is to turn molehills into mountains. It really IS a "who gives a f***?" situation, unless he flat out says he didn't want to shake hands with the team. It's an over-analysis and it just best serves to detract from the fact that this kid is a decent captain who just beat the Red Wings. A justification for an exuberant amount of vile dislike or hatred for a hockey player.

i can't stand it when people pass judgement on posters blowing off steam. from my experience there are two types of posters on the forum, those that bash the teams after a loss, and those that bash posters bashing the team after a loss. only one of the two try to make it personal. there's no need to make it personal.

if people don't expect or tolerate complaining after the biggest game of the season has been lost, they probably shouldn't bother visiting this site after the biggest game of the season has been lost.

i've watched every game this year. i've invested a lot of emotion into this team this year. it's natural i'm going to be pissed off after a loss of this magnitude. but as disappointed as i feel, i didn't get personal with another poster. i directed my disappoinment to the game, where it belongs.
