More baseless Crosby bashing. If you recall Crosby WAS hit from behind, into the boards, AND injured on the play. You'll recall he missed about a full year of hockey because of it. Viktor Hedman did it. And he wasn't suspended on the play. Neither was David Steckel when he "blindsided" Crosby and injured him. People keep saying "if it happened to Crosby the NHL would sing a different tune". Well it has, and they haven't.
Steckel didn't blindside Crosby. They were both looking away from where they were skating. Steckel is just 5 inches taller, hence Crosby's head hit shoulder. Maybe a bit off topic, not that it matters around here, but that one needed correcting. And Hedman braced him into the glass, they just hit a stantion. Crosby was injured on the Steckel hit and from repeated hard hits. If you're a smaller player like Crosby and you're getting hit by guys that are 6'3 all the time, your head gets rattled whether it's the primary point of contact or not. I'm Crosby's size, I know full well.
