Totally true. I agree with Crosby getting overblown. I'm sure I fall into that fact a little myself.
Far as malts. thats what part of his game that would frustrate me to no end. He would be flapping his gums and then when it would be step up time he would skate off and let other players take the heat. Man just think about being on the ice on the other team with him. hahaha.

I have no problem with a loved one feeling anger over a suicide. If you are dependent on a person for emotional or financial support and they voluntarily end their life - how can you not feel anger over it? Depression is a disease like addiction, it can be fatal, but it is also curable.
The anger need not even be aimed at the person, but at the cause of death, whether it be disease, accident, murder, or even just natural causes. Regardless of what happened, there is loss of time with that person. There is the loss of that person's future, and how it might have been spent.
Sometimes anger at the person who died is the "safest" emotion because they (or their feelings) can't be hurt by the anger.
Life isn't fair, and when things happen that aren't the way we'd like them to go, there is anger, disappointment, frustration... all sorts of feelings may arise depending on the gravity of the event.
There are a ton of emotions one goes through. None are wrong; only acting inappropriately is wrong. Feeling them is up to the individual.
Bold prediction: Geography teachers will worry themselves silly about the confusion it will cause when the SCF involves Winnipeg from the East and Detroit from the West. Students will not notice anything ironic, despite the fact that Doc Emerick will explain the situation in dramatic, yet condescending fashion before, during, and after every single game of the Finals.
When we hit our Annual February Injury Blight (you know the one- where we are missing half the roster and people throw tantrums because we lose an occasional game)
C- Lids (will not get injured)
A- Tatar (until he gets injured)
A- Exelby (until he gets injured)
A- Janik (until he gets injured)
A- Hudler (won't get injured; will instead lead the team in scoring)
A- MacDonald (due to the fact that he's the only call-up left who doesn't have an Ohio license plate)
I didn't even know what a Commodore 64 was until people explained it here, but now I have to admit that I'm disappointed. I like numbers that aren't the run-of-the-mill type things. It's cool that he did the charity thing, though.
