Crosby isn't the only star in the league to dive.

Crosby isn't the only star in the league to ***** and moan to the media.


Crosby is the poster boy for 1) the NHL, 2) hockey at large, and - and here's The Thing for an ever increasing percentage of peeps - 3) diving, bitching-'n'-moaning, and all that cheddar.

Don't Toews me, bro!

And Crosby responds because, hey, he's Crosby.

http://www.post-gaze...ys-digs-629716/

Oh wait, maybe he's not going to respond...

Penguins center Sidney Crosby said today that he didn't care to respond to critical remarks NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury made about him during an interview with a Philadelphia radio station Monday.

Phew, keeping his whiny mouth shut for a change.

And then, almost immediately, he responded, albeit briefly.

...never mind.

And of course, he unknowingly admits the whole double-standard when it comes to penalizing him.

"There are times when, it's a contact sport, and I do get involved, but I don't think I've gotten one penalty in a scrum since I've been back."


...despite the fact that there have clearly been times he should have been penalized. Spoiled little baby boy just doesn'tf****** get it.

The problem with Crosby being the poster boy of the NHL is his behavior. He is immature and disrespectful, that is why I can't stand him and all the praise he is always getting. I've never had any respect for him because of us unprofessional behavior...yes he may be talented but that gets canceled out when you're a whiny *****.

Today on Hockeycentral, Doug Maclean was defending Crosby and doesn't understand why so many people rip him all the time. :lol:

Hey, Milbury only stated to the hockey world what many of us feel, so good for him. :clap:

Agreed.

While guys like Milbury, and Cherry irritate many fans - I gotta admit that I find myself agreeing with them from time to time.

And, predictably, Milbury pusses out while Uncle Gary makes him apologize to his precious baby boy and his crying fans. Ugh. There goes that little, tiny shred of respect I had gained for Milbury.

Haha! Hilarious.

Little doggie Milbury runs back to his crate crying with his tail between his legs the second master Bettman scolds him. And he was just calling someone else a punk? Lol, thats rich!

(even though as we all agree that Crosby does act like a spoiled little punk)

I'm sure he cares more about making a (good) living and keeping his job than to stand up for fans of a sporting event.

Well, obviously. I was pointing out the immense and quite funny irony of him ranting about Cindy being a punk, only to completely punk out himself almost immediately after making the comment.

When does Crosby start fights he can't finish? No idea where you get this from.

Crosby isn't the only star in the league to dive.

I never said it was only Crosby, I was addressing a whole group of young players who have this air of entitlement, like they have special rules that apply only to them. And I hate to say this but, it seems they are right.

Not to get off topic, but I don't even fully blame these young players, its beyond that, its the entire generation and the way they've been brought up. It seems anyone under the age of about 35 or so these days is part of what has been referred to as the "entitlement generation" and bases their philosophy and attitude on the "I am owed the world on a platter" type mentality.

Even when he scored the Olympic goal in 2010 the first thing I said (after jumping up and celebrating) was "uggghhh, I wish it was ANYONE but him". Because he was a complete ghost 95% of that tournament and got all the credit - just like in 2009 when he was a minus player almost every game, couldnt win faceoffs, and put up no numbers in the finals but because of who he is its viewed as HIS victory.

Yea when Crosby scored that OT winner the first thing I said was, "Why Crosby?"

And yea again, in 2009 Malkin, Talbot, Fleury, the NHL (for not suspending Malkin for Game 3), and the refs (for not being able to count to 6) won the Cup. It wasn't Crosby.

For the upteenth time:

Malkin wasn't the only one who's suspension based on that rule was rescinded. He wasn't out there to send a message and the suspension wasn't necessary in that case.

jroc: Who said it was Crosby's victory and no one elses? Malkin won the Conn Smythe, everyone celebrated with the cup, Talbot was praised for his two goals in that series as well as other players throughout (including Staal's shorthanded goal in game 4).

Better get out your torch and pitchforks, it's a Wings fan defending Crysby.

Shaman: I haven't seen any evidence that Crosby gets preferential treatment from the league compared to everyone else. Guess what? Star players, liked or not, tend to get the benefit of the doubt over lower players. It isn't just Crosby.

Careful - you'll have Majsheppard on your case for gender stereotyping ;)
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

This makes it sound like skill players are exempt from the rule. He acted tough within the last 5, apply the f***in rule and don't read the f***in' jersey first! f***!

Well, just to play devil's advocate, Milbury does have pretty powerful bosses over his shoulder. He's in a profession where it seems as if he's very replaceable if he isn't willing to be a talking head. He has to make a living somehow and I would imagine that hockey might be all that Milbury really knows in his life. His prospects for coaching don't seem bright and his hopes for a GM job could be all but dead in the water (If any of you don't know Milbury's history as a GM, look it up, it's HIGH-larious). Broadcasting might just be all that he has left. In some ways he's lucky just to have a job in the NHL and he can't really fight the power all that much.

That said... I'd really like him off the air. :cool:

Spoiled little baby boy just doesn'tf****** get it.


That kind of reminds me of the 2009 finals where the press would ask him about why he felt the need to cross check Z after the whistles so much and he said something to the effect of, 'I'm not going to say he started it... But he started it...." It was obviously not in those words but the sentiment was similar.

I don't think message sending was the issue for malkin. I thought it was because he didn't have his jersey tied down. Same thing Hossa received a 1 game suspension for earlier in the season.

Not if you understand the spirit of the rule it doesn't.

Scott Walker suckered Aaron Ward (oh memories!) and took an instigator penalty during the 2009 Eastern Semi Finals and his suspension was also rescinded. He was only fined for the sucker punch.

Do you think Scott Walker was a "skill" player that year?

I don't think message sending was the issue for malkin. I thought it was because he didn't have his jersey tied down. Same thing Hossa received a 1 game suspension for earlier in the season.


If that was the case Zetterberg would have also been suspended.
