Crosby coming back

Rate this topic

He's caught Hudler in goals scored. Sweet.

Funny. I was sure that Hudler was the better goalscorer of the two.

If I remember right Crosby already leapfrogged 243 players in point stats. If he can stay healthy and play 62 games this season 90 points is not impossible.

I'm not hugely impressed. Also, both of Sidney's goals were easily stoppable by an experienced goalie.

As opposed to Zetterberg and Datsyuk, who this season seem to be easily stopped by ANY goalie.

Not saying they suck, they're just having some BAD LUCK!

LOL at people bringing up how the Islanders are a horrible team. It's not like Crosby ever scores points against any of the good teams in the league, right?

This blind hatred is really funny sometimes.

Of course he's going to score points against good teams - he's a good player, like him or not. It's not about Sid; it's about the media. They're ready to hand the Pens the Cup right here and now based on ONE GAME he played in. Could the Pens win the Cup this year? Sure. But I expect media professionals to make that prediction based on some solid stats collected over a period of time. I do expect the Pens to do well, especially with Crosby back, but I'm not going to declare it the Second Coming and demand that Bettman cancel the playoffs this year and give the Pens the Cup now. based on a game against the Islanders. If that's blind hate, then the blind haters still have a lot more sense left than the hockey media does.

As a note to those who dislike the "blind hatred" of f***head up there, if you don't like that there are people here who dislike him, either suck it up and accept that hey, a lot of people don't like the guy, or go post on LetsGoPens, where there will NO "blind hatred" of Sir ******-a-Lot.

Choice is yours.

Ooh, what a threatening suggestion.

Go join a forum of a team that will win multiple Cups in the next 5 to 10 years.

Are you kidding Mack? I'm ready to sign up this instant. :yowza:

I just don't understand meanness and the disrespect shown between so many LGW members. It overshadows any of the real discussion and is too bad for the forum. I'm on a few political forums, a couple 4x4 forums, some motorcycle forums, etc, but none of them have the meanness between members that I see displayed here.

And I'm taking into account that on LGW, Sidney Crosby is more polarizing than Obama, The Pope, and abortion.

this thread is nearly as long as the last GDT when we beat anaheim.

:(

Yup. Another reason why Crosby is the face of the NHL. The controversy around him really sucks in the public.

5.7 million people watched the game on CBC last night.

See there, you're all missing the point. This entire "concussion" episode was really a ploy to get people to actually watch the Islanders. :ph34r:

fixed that for ya, bro!

I have nothing in particular against Crosby (other than he's a whiner) but I'm sick and tired of media being disrespectful to 1000+ other

NHL players who give their best day in and day out. Quite a few of them are close to skill level of Crosby and many are at least as entertaining

to watch, if not more. but all you hear is Canadian media doing blah-blah-blah about Crosby...

last I checked Jesus was Jewish. and he didn't play hockey. somebody please pass it to TSN/CBC. gonna be tough to swallow, I know...

that's not to say I'm totally against Canadian Church of His Greatness Crosby when the later retires or resurrects (whatever comes first).

I'm sure it'd gain whole 34+ millions followers...

Same thing, really. As the NHL constantly preaches his name over and over again it annoys fans all over the world to no end and many of us can't help but complain about it, thus creating controversy and strong emotional interest and salience from the public.

I feel like it's similar to Eva and Hudler. Without forces like him trolling everybody on here and causing us to spend more time on this site pointlessly arguing with them for only God knows why it might be safe to say that LGW.com doesn't get as much traffic.

gotta agree on this one with you.

I just wanted to point out that for many ppl here this isn't really about hatred towards Crosby, but about being fed up with all the indoctrination how he's

the real son of a god (and Jesus was just some beta version of Sindy), because it is overwhelming. and the very reason of this discussion is not Crosby

himself but how Canadian media behave...

Not really familiar with Canadian media/sports media practices in general, but you can probably just simply just say media is overhyping.

Because it's the same way here with media on certain athletes whether it's the NFL or NBA, or political news, whatever.

True I don't like Crosby much, but very little of it has to do actually with playing them in the Cup Finals two years in a row. I don't really get too much into sports rivalries/hating teams in that sense, I pretty much just want my team to win, it's Crosby's persona on the ice primarily that has been outlined by people plenty in here and I don't need to rehash again which I don't like about him, fair or not.

So that gives fuel for people to say that we are "jealous" of him unfortunately, but it absolutely makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up when I or people get accused of that. Why the heck would I be jealous of his play? I already get that he's one of the best in the game today. Good on him. Some probably hate him because they simply hate Pitt or because we played them twice in a row. Cool, I perfectly get that. But pretty much with just about every person the dislike comes from the absurd over-emphasis he gets (and very few people here don't whine or be critical that a Red Wing should have attention more in the same scenario - just in general HE GETS TOO MUCH ATTENTION). Crosby probably thinks he gets too much attention.

While I'd appreciate if I got such attention, eventually I'd just be like, "Okay people, let me go about my normal routine."

I don't think most of the other players feel any disrespect (your number is way too high though, it's more like 600 that play on a regular basis). The players around the league appear to have respect for the guy too based on last year's player polls and based on what I read this morning:

Crosby was inundated with congratulatory texts from players around the league -- "That really means a lot," he said. "I was kind of caught off guard by that"

Edit....one other thing, most players, not all, but most wouldn't mind all the attention he gets as well, they probably prefer not to get bothered by the media. I've seen some guys in other sports who beg for the media attention, but I don't see a lot of that in hockey.

Crosby > Jesus.

I'd rather be a young millionaire, get to have sex with plenty of hot women, be the best hockey player in the world, than be Jesus. ANY DAY.

Finally something we agree on. We're both eternally grateful that you're not Jesus.

I'm also glad you're not Crosby.

Welcome back, Sid. I wish you good health and a good butt-kicking by the Wings every time you face them.

If by "hot women" you mean Mario, then you're probably on the right track. I'm willing to bet Jesus was way more of a hit with the ladies than Sid. At least Jesus has that whole "water-into-wine" trick up his sleeve, whereas the only thing Sid's got up his sleeve is a tissue.

You're trying too hard. This bulls*** of yours jumped the shark several posts ago.

2 penalties, no points and only 1 shot on goal so far against the Blues. Funny how he doesn't look so awesome when not playing one of the worst teams in the league...

I think I'd rather be the son of God.

Anyway, full marks for Crosby in his second game back. I saw highlights against St. Louis, he played a physical game, and took and gave some hits. I didn't want to see Cindy get a free ride. If he can't handle the rough stuff, then he shouldn't be playing. If he can handle it, then more power to him.
