I've been basking in the glory of the Pen's collapse, this series has been unreal.

Unless the Pens pull off a miracle, it's na na na na hey hey hey goodbye. Much deserved for the Flyers and Pens imo.

Crosby manages to make Pronger look like Yzerman in terms of leadership.

I have this feeling that if the Flyers start to blow out the Pens again in Game 4, Crosby will get himself kicked out of the game so he doesn't have to be in the handshake line.

There's no way Crosby goes through the handshake line. I've never seen such an entitled player before. The guy is an overgrown child with his whining and attitude problems. You don't like them so you do petty little things that a kindergartner would do? What a loser.

It's a shame that the "C" on Crosby's jersey isn't attached with velcro.

I think its funny that he always says he grew up idolizing Steve Yzerman. Don't people tend try to emulate their idols? I don't recall Yzerman doing or saying these types of things.

I just saw the Crosby post-game interview, how embarrassing.

"I don't like anyone on that team."
"what was i supposed to do? Hand him his glove?"

It sounded like a ten year old. This is the face of the NHL and the captain of his squad? That dude pretty much solidified everyone's notion that he is indeed a little *****. Though I don't wish anything long term on the guy, but I wouldn't mind seeing him get his ass kicked pretty good a couple times.


I know, that bit just completely threw out the whole argument of "Oh, he was only like that in his first couple seasons!"

Then they ask him why he didn't that childish bit with the glove.

"I don't like him."

"Why?"
"Because...I don't like him."

I think I used that excuse once when I was in Kindergarten.

BTW, Jesse Spector has a great write-up on this:

Wow, I had no idea Bylsma was on the Ducks. He's probably the only part of that Pens team that I don't hate.

I don't think he should be the face of the NHL if he can't be professional enough to go through the handshake line. Likewise, he has never deserved that C but this behavior just confirms it. This is not the kind of role model children should be looking up to.

I hate Crybaby just as much as the next guy, but I sure as hell got a chuckle out of that. I'm not defending it, I just thought it was funny as s***. Especially since the Pens are getting romped this entire series.

Hey Crosby...

Honestly to see him so pissed off having to talk to reporters and talk about the Flyers while his "stacked" team is down 3-0 in the series lightens up my day.

Hahah. Has this not been the most entertaining playoff year in recent memory? All these teams HATE each other.
