I'm still waiting for Crosby to "dominate" this series.

Well he IS leading the series in the "shooting gloves away from their owners" category. So there's always that.

James Neal to have rare double hearing with Shanny today.

Asham to follow with an in-person meeting.


Very busy day for Shanahan.

Good.

Though I doubt we'll see a suspension for Neal. Can't possibly have one the Pens' scorers out. <_<

#pulledacrosby is currently trending on Twitter. :lol:


Not for nothing, but your next post will be your 25,000th. 25,000 posts. That's as many posts as some people make in salary per year. I feel that Matt should make some monument to your greatness or something, to honor this astounding achievement in saying so little, so many times.

Neal, Asham and Adams should all be suspended. But I guess we'll see. Technically didn't Crosby start the s***e with Hartnell with less than five to go that Adams jumped into? But we all know he won't be suspended. Get 'em Shanny!!

Does anyone feel confident in their (Shanahan and Bettman) ability to get these suspensions right?

I don't.

And I really don't blame Shanahan. He has bosses too that he has to listen to over the fans.

True....but I also don't believe Shanny is nothing more than a figure head either.


Funniest/most disturbing thing to emerge from yesterdays brawl-olopalooza was Crosbys unwaivering defense of his own Douchebaggery. That clown was the central figure in the first brawl....not only touching it off with his Paul Bunyan tactics on Bryz.....but then fanning the flames with his impersonation of a Canadian curler....brooming Voraceks glove away from him. He actually defended his actions by saying.......tell me if you've heard this before......"its playoff hockey" and this nugget of wisdom "what am I suppose to do, pick his glove up?" No Sid.....you don't have to pick it up.....but I'm guessing acting like a 3 year old knocking over another kids sandcastle wasn't the appropriate behavior either......how about leave it alone.....jackhole.

The only thing that makes me mad about Crosby, is he acts like a kid. If he would've said.. we were down 3-1 and I was starting s*** to fire my team up.. well ATLEAST that is a purpose! but no, he's like yeah I screwed up, but your not going to get me to admit it! He starts "fights" and throws punches when the guy is down, and covered by the ref, but before when they were letting them fight, he wanted no part of it... Like Uh,Oh, I gotta fight now.. Just such a coward scumbag.. If your looking for a fighting captain, look at Iginla(sp) for inspiration, I <HATE> Iginla, but at least he has my respect. I hope after this year, the league will start investing in a new face..

Well, it's only fitting, then, that it shall exist in this thread, a monument to the epic arrogance that is the Pittsburgh Penguins organization.

And you know why the Flyers are doing so well? They've got this guy on their roster:

Another observation. Is it just me, or does Scott Hartnell look like the illegitimate love child of Kenny G and Jeremy Roenick?

How did Schenn refuse to pummel Crosby right there? He had no ref in his way after all.

I think it was fear of a lifetime suspension for concussing Crosby again...which you know would have happened. I was hoping for him to throw a punch but in my mind I heard Crosby say "you know you can't hit me, go ahead try it" :ranting:

Probably figures that if you dare fight precious little cindy the coward, then you'll get permanently banned from the NHL by Bettman.

Interesting insight from Kerry Fraser...

Fraser: Looking Back...

"The main event might have started when Sid knocked Jake's glove away, but the preliminary bout happened a minute or so earlier when Crosby chopped at another Flyer player's glove and wasn't penalized for it.

The absence of a swift and firm response by the referees to Sidney Crosby's repeated slash to the glove hand of Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov prior to the fisticuffs became an officiating turning point in the game. This spark ignited the ever-present combustible fuel that exists when these two teams meet and caused player hostilities to boil over and continue throughout most of the game. The officials had to continually battle back from this early incident in an
attempt to exert and maintain control."

Silly Fraser, Crosby doesn't get penalties!
