You're right. A radio poll is great evidence of such and an excellent cross section of the majority opinion. Are you kidding me?


Considering it's Detroit's biggest radio station? I'm by no means saying it's a scientific fact, but I was just using it to show that there are some people that hate Crosby so much that they would go against Yzerman...

Actually he was voted "chump of the week" on 97.1 for hugging Sidney Crosby after the Olympics. Soooo yeah.



How much of that was "I hate Steve Yzerman" and how much of it was "I hate Sidney Crosby"? What if Steve hadn't done it? He would have been raked over the coals for putting team politics (Red Wings vs. Penguins) over what Team Canada had accomplished. That's not in Steve's nature. So there's no way in hell he would have snubbed him.



Let it go would you? You're embarrassing yourself.

We should be celebrating this win, instead because some little ***** boy started to act tough at the end of the game, this thread has deteriorated into a Crysby thread.

Throw in Carman and a few Pens fans and the whole thing has shot to hell.

No one has discussed the actual game in like 15 pages and it was one of the best games we've played all year.

Oh. My. God. You really think Crosby was trying to severely debilitate Zetterberg? Wow.

Have you people never watched a hockey game before? It's not like scrums at the end of the games only happen when Sidney is on the ice...

Crosby was trying to be friendly and gentle when he was repeatedly cross checking Z in the back. Did I say Crosby was trying to debilitate Z? No. That over blowing what I originally said garbage isn't going to work. I said Crosby was trying to injure Z, which he clearly was. His actions depict that. We all saw it. Your love affair with Crosby is getting in the way of your judgment.

Considering it's Detroit's biggest radio station? I'm by no means saying it's a scientific fact, but I was just using it to show that there are some people that hate Crosby so much that they would go against Yzerman...

This would be true if there were 100 or so Red Wings fans. Not every single Wings fan called into the station to give their opinion. It's a silly radio bit and has zero bearing on anything. Using it as some sort of justification is idiotic.

So you are comparing Bertuzzi's incident to a crosscheck?

And do you use this same "responsible" defense for your boy Ovie?

Come on now. Pittsburgh played like crap and Crosby was stepping up for his team and showing emotion it happens at the end of games believe it or not.




Actually he was voted "chump of the week" on 97.1 for hugging Sidney Crosby after the Olympics. Soooo yeah.

Ovie is not my boy. Never said he was. I never even mentioned him in this thread. I am not saying cindy's cross check was as bad as Bert's attack. But even the attack was not meant to break his neck, it was meant to send a message and get revenge, the result was an unfortunate result. I am just saying crysby's cross check was just that, a message and a revenge move, that could've, if caught in the right way, result in a unfortunate result. What if Zetterberg had turned around at the exact time and crysbys ended up cross checking z's nose or something. BE THE PROFESSIONAL AND FACE OF THE NHL YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. It is nice tho that time and time again Zetterberg proves who is the better player...

BTW if Bertuzzi hadn't fallen on top of Moore, his neck wouldn't have been broken. So that little what if was the difference between getting knocked out and what actually resulted. One day cindy will do something in one of his tantrums and it WILL result in a "INCIDENT" and then what? ANd so will Ovie...

It's not fair to dismiss people's bitching about Crosby's dirty plays simply because Ovechkin does it, too.

Why?

Because Ovechkin actually gets punished for his transgressions. The league wouldn't suspend Crosby if he intentionally jammed his skate into a player's throat. They'd just call him "competitive."

I just used it because someone said there wasn't one Wing fan that had that opinion. And it seems there are more then one that's all.

Let me know when Crosby ends someone's season. Ok?

They played well. Franzen hit a post and they were very solid defensively. Although they were kept off the score sheet they played well I thought.

Maybe Crosby let down Yzerman tonight.

Probably because hevthinks that the league's best player, Olympic Champion and Stanly Cup Champion and Captain is worthy of praise.


I disagree with hm, and I wish Zetts would have tooled Ctosby instead of bitchng out and letting his goie save him, but whatya gonna do?
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Why can't both Pavel and Z dominate on separate lines? Is that even possible? To have both of those lines have a performance of that magnitude?

I do respect Carmen tho in that he not the typical Red Wings slappy that 95% of the users on here are. I have no problem showing my dislike for many former and current Wings and no matter what people tell me, will never change my opinion. I despise crysby, that is the only difference between him and someone like, McCarty or Hudler. I cannot stand either of those guys either, but not to the extent of cindy. And for the record, my vote goes to Fedorov over Yzerman when it comes to who was a better player for the Wings. Not taking anything away from YZerman as a player or a captain, but for my money, Fedorov was better. crysby still sucks compared to Zetterberg tho!

Yeah, they haven't clicked on all cylinders yet. Zetterberg has a world class game one night, and Datsyuk the next. Hopefully they are just banking the performances for the important part.:cool:

Well as much as you people talk about Crosby it seems pretty evident...

Thank you Gordie, maybe people will actually listen to you...

I doubt it though, their jealousy is blinding them.


Carman, I think I'm correct in saying that NOBODY here is jealous of Crosby.

"All done? Five bucks." - Pavel Datsyuk after an interview
"Very few cities in the NHL have the history or the following of the Detroit Red Wings." - Steve Yzerman
