An Unlikely Scrap

Once again, he's faught Andrew Ference and Keith Ballard.

I don't consider them big time fighters. 2 or 3 fights a year is not a fighter.

thank you so much for pointing that out Carman. This proves my point

Crosby jumps the wrong guy in ballard and gets his ass kicked, but still finds time to do the ***** thing and hit the guy after he's got the take down.

Surely they aren't heavyweights, but they have some fighting experience.

I really hope you don't legitimately expect Crosby to challenge Boogard or Macintyre haha.

And yeah he lost the Ballard fight i wouldn't say he got his "ass kicked", he lost pretty decisively, but he didn't get ko'd or anything, but at least he dropped the gloves with him and took some shots. You bash him because he ragdolls, you bash him because he wears a visor, you bash him because he doesn't challenge fighters, you bash him because he loses a fight, you bash him because he fights, you bash him because he doesn't fight. Ahh jealousy...

I didn't bash him for anything above. I said he doesn't fight fighters, which he doesn't. I bash him because he attacked the Panther player in a crying baby fit. I bash him because he whines. I bash him because he goes after people when he is frustrated. He is a hell of a player but I would respect him more if he just played and didn't try fighting guys because he is losing and frustrated.

A great example is when he went after Zetterberg with about 10 cross checks to his back all because the baby was shut down. What did you think about him going after Z like that ?

I'm not jealous in the least.

I'm not bashing him for any other reason right now, then to say he picks his fights and runs around like he's superman cause he's gotten in a few fights.

Here i'll use a guy who's not very well liked around here to prove my point. He's no Jerome Iginla. Iggy is a guy I respect, because even though he has fought with a visor and even though he's often a trapshooting prick, he'll answer the bell when it's rung and he won't pick the smallest guy on the ice either.

Crosby is now 4/5 in his fights. He can do everything.

lmao. What is your definition of a fight, exactly? Your crush on him knows no bounds.

I'll say it again: what pissed me off more than the 10 crosschecks to Z's back was the fact that it was Jimmy ******* Howard who went after Crosby. Kronwall also had a clear shot after they'd been separated and didn't so much as look in the same direction as Crosby, let alone say anything (God forbid!)... just terrible.

Paging Pavel Kocur...

You mad?

Everyone on the ice went after him, it was just Howard who got the facewash in first.

I really hate how Crosby gets in a fight and it's suddenly big news on ESPN and the first two highlighted stories on NHL.com. Why is it such a big deal? Didn't do much, Pens lost 5-2. I understand he is a posterboy, but it's just gets terribly annoying that it's suddenly the only story worth talking about.

:lol: No offense but are you new to the NHL?

Odd that it's front and center on NHL.com. I thought they didn't want to highlight fighting in the league.

IOKIYC, I guess.

Here are Niskanen's thoughts on the scrap:

I never saw that coming," Niskanen said after the Stars defeated the Penguins 5-2 at American Airlines Center. "We were up 4-1 and he was probably trying to get the team going. He asked me to go and we went. I didn't say a word to him all night. I wasn't on the ice with him all night. I made sure he really wanted it and we went. It happens. I think he probably picked me out," Niskanen said. "Maybe I was the smallest guy out there. I don't know."

Crosby haters will hate this but it was not a bad scrap... I'd call it a draw but I love the heart they showed. I personally am a fan of Crosby (minus the whiny fits) but the kid can play and I love that he will throw down from time to time.... and people question his leadership?! Scores, Assists, Hits and occasionally fights... if only we could bring him to Hockeytown!

Call me crazy, but I would rather have Stamkos than Crosby...

I'd rather have them both over Ovechkin.

Stamkos is a stud, I just wouldn't say I'd take him over Crosby yet. Crosby's been dominating for 5 years now.

Stamkos is definitely a gooder too but I'm with Carman... Crosby has been at or near the top since he started, plus he's won the Cup, plus he's got a Gold medal, plus he's even been in a few fights. I'd welcome Stamkos too but at this point Crosby's been in way more wars and has proven he can last. Hell we can't even get our big boys to fight as Crosby has..

Who cares? I dont lose any sleep knowing Dats or Z wont jump some random scrub in the final minutes of a game when they are getting stomped.

I said our Big boys... big like Franzen is big but he acts as though he's been shot in the face after getting a facewash instead of being a big man and fighting back. I tried to find the video on it but couldn't happened a few year ago if I'm not mistaken.

looking for this?

lol reminds me of this

Franzen might not fight but he will throw his weight around and knock people on their ass. So i guess that makes up for it.

Way to fight with a visor on and then just keep pulling to knock the guy off balance. That wasn't a fight that was a grappling match.

A Grappling match is still a fight and... for 2 non-fighters they held their own. You expect them to show like Probert vs Domi?

I'm not gonna watch it again, I only saw a lil bit of it via nhl: on the fly but it looked like crosby got some good punches in... but weren't they both wearing visors?

Based on one 51 goal season where he had St. Louis on his line while Crosby had...well I'm sure you know.

Yeah, you are crazy.
