Crosby won the fight. Of course he picked out the smallest guy on the ice, but he won. Even if he picked his spot, he did throw down and props for that. But he only picked a fight he knew he would win.

I wouldn't want him to get killed. I'd rather someone just amputate his legs so that he has to live but can't play the sport that he loves.


I liked it. Other people are more PC.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

Has it gotten to the point that people on this form dislike the guy so much logic thought can not be processed when it comes to him?

For the record, Niskanen is BIGGER than Crosby. Crosby picks his spots and doesn't fight guys with more fighting experience? Come on, Crosby isn't a fighter, why would he pick fights with fighters. People are acting as it Crosby singles out the weakest player in every game and goes out and picks a fight with them. He's been in 4 or 5 fights in his career and has fought guys in and around his size.....is there really anything wrong with that? There is because it's Crosby of course, I must be an idiot, that's the one variable I did not consider.

Here are Niskanen's thoughts on the scrap:

I think he probably picked me out," Niskanen said. "Maybe I was the smallest guy out there. I don't know."

What happened? Did Niskanen take Sid's My Little Pony and not give it back?

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.

datsyuk fight>crosby fight.


this get's me thinking... Datsyuk vs. Crosby would be epic

I would rather see Zetterberg vs. Crosby but I doubt that's going to happen

I wouldn't want to see Crosby fight any star on the Wings. Crosby is a strong kid, but in every fight all he seems to do is try to pull and drag people around for majority of the 'fight' then throw a couple punches somewhere in there and thats it. If Crosby was willing to throw fists, thats a different story but I don't really want to see him throwing Dats around like that.

Crosby is very strong physically, but pound for pound I would have to give the edge to Dats in that matchup. I don't think anyone in the league today who is close in size could ragdoll Datsyuk the way Crosby did Niskanen. I wouldn't mind seeing Datsyuk and Crosby square off and see who is REALLY the best all-around player in the league ;)

That being said, I give Crosby props for trying to be a leader and throwing some good punches. I think the fight was less a product of the score and more due to the fact that Morrow picked a fight with Letang, who not only is not much of a fighter but has a hand injury and couldn't really fight back if he wanted to.

Everybody in the media have been making a big deal out of the Crosby fight, but yesterday I was watching NHL on the fly and they show'd some of his previous fights including the one the other day,

and the dude never takes of his helmet. In my opinion he should be admonished by the media and other players for fighting with a helmet and visor on,

instead of being praised. His helmet can really hurt somebody.

I dont remember who the pens were playing or who Crosby wanted to fight, but a few seasons ago Crosby challenged someone and the other player backed down because Crosby was wearing a visor. While on the bench Crosby had the equipment guy take his visor off. Next shift Crosby challenged the same guy and the guy pussed out.

Now Im no Crosby fan, but that was bad ass of him.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

The guys on NHL Home Ice were all creaming their jeans about the fight today. Reminded me of why I stopped listening to that channel initially. <_<

I don't remember it, but that was one time. And it hasn't stopped him from fighting with his visor on since.

You notice that the people he fights have a visor as well?

Of the 5 fights I saw replays of yesterday all but one took the helmet off. And crosby never did.

Just in response to the person who wants to see Pavs fight Crosby......how about hell no. I don't want Pavs putting his bare hands on that guy. The almost palpable amount of ****** that oozes off of him may rub off on Pavs and turn him into the Russian version of The Situation from Jersey Shore.

More often then not helmets are left on... its not just Crosby. Remember Joe Kocur's f***ed up knuckles? Didn't happen from getting them slammed in the door.
