Have you not noticed that at least 5 pens games were shown while Crosby was not playing? And first Wings game to be shown in the whole season is Friday. And those games shown were the Pens against s***ty teams that was not even exciting hockey.

Well then he is right about running a good business then, why show the pengwhines play someone they may lose to? Show them playing the worst teams in the league so they wax them and then the whole country loves them even more! (and by whole country I mean the greater s***sburgh area)

I'm glad he's back, for the good of the game, but we're supposed to like him?

All Crosby haters can just stfu. I don't care what excuses y'all have, 2g 2a in his first game back. He s***s on Z and Dats combined.

It would make NO sense to not show Crosby's first game back. Never run/start a business because you will fail miserably.


Honestly, this. I actually would have really liked to watch the game. I completelyf****** sick of the 100% Crosby crap, but he is ungodly talent.

Well, your kids can grow up rooting for Ericsson and Filppula for the next 10 years.


Filppula had a 4 point night. :ph34r:

Here, for you:

http://shop.nhl.com/...goryId=11757677

don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out...

It's a bold statement Wings fans don't like to hear, but seriously, who's better than Crosby on the Wings? Who has a better resumé?

Maybe Datsyuk if you want to argue defensive play and Selkes? Assuming he stays healthy, he has 9 years to close that gap defensively, and he's already better in every offensive category. Crosby is 24 years old. At that age Dats was just starting in the NHL and hadn't scored more than 12 goals in a season.

I don't like him, but there's no denying how friggin good he is. Like I said, that just makes him even more annoying.

I agree. At the same time though, Crosby really is a top tier player in the NHL. Its like the NHL missing one of its biggest stars, like Ovechkin, for almost a year. The game is good, but the game could be even better with that player back. I watched the game on Versus tonight, and Crosby really has been dominant. The first goal really was his first shot on net in almost a year and it was backhand top shelf goal. Simply incredible.

At the same time though, I thought the first penalty that Crosby drew was weak. An Islander player got a cross checking penalty for knocking Crosby down from behind. I see that almost every game and refs rarely call that. Hell, how many times has homer been knocked down like that from behind and the person doing it NEVER gets called. So I thought that penalty was kind of suspect.....

Still, its great to have Crosby back in the lineup for the Pens.

It is pretty funny that we're all sick here of how much attention he gets, but this thread is almost getting as long as the GDT's. :P

He is an outstanding hockey player just can't stand all the hype about him. (Not that he doesn't deserve it, just a tad overboard/annoying)

If Dats was getting the same hype and performed the same way, no one here would say a word about it. Just because Crosby is on another team, I bet we could find fans of 29 other NHL teams who think the same way as we do. Hell, it was great not hearing Crosby's name for almost a full year. Now that he is back, we will get a ton of Crosby commercials. I am not looking forward to all the media and commercial hype. I am looking forward to watching him dominate hockey games though. There are a few players that I love to watch besides Dats and Z on the Wings. Ovechkin and Crosby are two others that are worth the price of admission or my Gamecenter Live subscription.

Leafs fans wouldn't understand, they haven't been in the playoffs in 7 years. The player they hate is Roenick, and he's long retired.

How did Crosby backcheck/play defensively?

Serious question. I didn't watch the game.

He played both ends of the ice well, but he was playing against the Islanders and only 2nd line minutes. The Islanders really didn't play great.

I still take Datsyuk one-on-one against anyone in the league, including Golden Boy.

Agreed, although the refs called a lot of weak ones all game. 6 powerplays for NY vs. 4 for PIT.

Even with Zetterberg's struggles this season, I'd still take him against Golden Boy as well.
