because anyone can dive with minimal contact from another player....
Sid is so damn impressive. He's really bringing his game to the next level.

1. When your moves are so amazing and beyond reason, the only way to describe them is "datsyukian."

The thing I don't get about Crosby is why he feels he needs to pull this stuff. He's already won a Cup. He's gonna win the Hart this year. His team's a powerhouse. He's the best player in the world and the face of hockey. He is, by all accounts, a real class act off the ice. Refs are going to give him the benefit of the doubt on anything and everything anyway - but not if he keeps diving.
You're better than this, Sid. Though I suppose getting clocked in the face with a metallic whistle probably isn't a great feeling. But still.

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

I just don't even...
My brain literally hurts watching that. Even if he really got clocked or if the refs whistle got him funny or something, that is just some display. Half of me wonders if diving is just that much of a reflex for him that the second he feels something touch his head he fires up the acting gears.
But, I just don't even know what to say...

Crysby's so used to instinctively flailing those arms when contact is made with him above the waist that it just happened. Don't blame the poor guy. It's instinct.

Yea, everyone knows that highly conditioned athletes lose all strength in their legs when hit in the eye!
If this wasn't so pathetic and absurd it would be disgusting. Mr. (and I use the term lightly) Crosby can rack up all the points he wants. He can win a half dozen cups, gold medals and other awards. He can make more money than any player in hockey ever. However, there are a few things he will never have. Character and respect. When his number goes up in the rafters nobody will be talking about his integrity. Lucky for us we had and have star players who have as much f not more character than skill. I wouldn't trade a Yzerman or Lidstrom or even a Datsyuk or Zetterberg for a whole bench of whiny, spoiled, bitchy little Crosbies.

Like people mentioned Sindy can win all the trophies, stanley cups, be rich as hell and having an unbelievable beautfiful girlfriend at the end of the day he sometimes acts like a spoiled little brat if things aren't going his way. Boy would I love seeing him do that s*** against Backes or even better Colton Orr...
He is the best player in the world why do you have to use such low tactics ?!
