They do. But most of them don't involve elbows, or at least a forearm shiver to the head.

I'm far from a Crosby basher and have defended him in a lot of threads for the grief he gets around here, but if he threw an elbow like that against a Red Wing player, would you feel the same way? Or if it was Chris Pronger who did it and not Crosby?


The cross checks were a hell of a lot more violent than that bump to the face. If he did that to a Wing I'd call him a *****, but you see the s***s of the world in the NHL do this every single game to Holmstrom and we (LGW) never make threads about it. The "Head shot" was only technically a headshot because HWSNBM gave a pop shot to the face of the other player. Face-washes do more damage than a push of the face with a forearm.

Wow LGW new low, blaming voldemort for Crosbys antics :hehe:



But seriously the elbow isnt that bad, but its terrble when you consider this idiot just got back from being out with a concussion and going on about headshots. You think if Crosby gets hit with a bow like that, that hes calling it a hockey scrum and brushing it off like nothing? I sure dont

I am less impressed with the fact he starts something than his teammates come to finish it.... That little shot to the head was a ***** move, but not particularly dangerous. Now I can see why some people would make this a big deal as he did go on a 50000 city tour opening for Charlie Sheen with the whole 'head shots aren't a part of the game'. I do believe if hes going to take the moral high ground and not put himself in position for someone to take a run at him hes going to have to start walking what he talks.

Foligno should have just dropped his gloves and pounced on Crosby.

It'd be interesting to see if the Pens players would let Crosby fight, or would jump in there to save the day.

He's had a few fights in his career, but I have a hard time seeing him doing it after this concussion business.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Foligno wouldn't have had a chance to get a fight in. Not if Kunitz is playing babysitter the way he did on that scrum.

It wasn't a butt-end. It was a forearm. Theend of his stick was completely covered by his glove regardless. These scrums happen every game.


an argument can be made saying these things happen almost every game

however, i believe Crosby was saying things like all headshots and head hits needed to get banned, period. and yet he's dishing one out.

And if Foligno (or anyone) had done the same thing to Crosby at the other end... how would this have played out?

Yup, that and Crosby actually hid behind his GOALIE after starting the scrum.

This is why he will never have the respect. He is just lke Mario in that regard, waa waa if someone touches him, but it's just playing hard hockey if he does it to someone else...and just like Mario, nothing will be said from the NHL....Seems to me, NHL was better without him. At least everything was fair and there was no special treatment for players who seem to have special rules...

I am absolutely stunned by the hypocrisy of the Pittsburgh Penguins, and silence by the League, on this turn of events. :rolleyes:

I don't think I have ever had such a dislike for anyone as I do for Crosby. When I heard he was coming back, :ranting:my first thought was "great, now we're gonna have to see the NHL treat him with kid gloves" Some disagree, and say that everyone won't treat him any differently. After seeing this "scrum", I don't have a huge problem with it. The problem I have is the people who are defending this cry-baby martyr and the whiny cocky hypocritical comments coming from his ugly pie hole. It's only a matter of time before some player cracks and kicks this illiterate sob's ass, and that will be one sweet day. :oStill, can't believe the hatred I have for the idiot.Posted Image
