Ssshhhhhhhh! He's desparately trying to make his boyfriend look good after his embarrasing performance last night.

esteef


Oh no!!! One bad regular season game while he has already lead his team to a playoff spot and consecutive SCF appearances, how embarrassing.

we get it carman... please just go to letsgopens or something

i'm surprised you haven't discovered that that is where you belong


I don't get this.

I can't be an avid Wing's fan because I think Sidney Crosby is a great player?

Geez guess I should sell my season tickets then. Thanks for your input.

Well my point is this could be the start of something he may have to deal with. It's like in Baseball when pitchers find out a player can't hit a certain pitch, word gets around fast to the rest of the League.

But I get what you're trying to do here.


Funny you bring that up.

Yzerman says this.

"His game has evolved in every year. He's a complete player, much like Michael Jordan in basketball. Every year, they tried to fine something wrong with his game, and he just kept getting better and better," said Yzerman.

I agree with everything you are saying Gordie.

Unfortunately I attack immaturity with immaturity, so it takes away from my credibility.

I just don't see the big deal about the candy-cane s*** Crosby does, when there are players out there who are potentially ruining lives (Cooke, Torres, Ruutu etc.). Yet Crosby cross checks someone at the end of the game and it's the end of the world and has less class than Bertuzzi who paralyzed someone. It's mind boggling to me.

Should of been assessed 2 minutes for crosschecking and 2 minutes roughing.


Cool story.

Because penalties at the end of the game need to be nitpicked to the end of days, right?

This is what gets me:


20:00
PIT
Sidney Crosby : Roughing - 2 min
20:00
DET
Jimmy Howard : Roughing - 2 min
20:00
DET
Henrik Zetterberg : Roughing - 2 min

Looks like Crosby's crosscheck to Z went unnoticed...


Or they just gave him a roughing in place of a cross checking?
Same way the give a hooking class instead of a slash. Sometimes penalties overlap.

I'm sure if Zetterberg took a swing, he'd be the one to get punished by the League, Crosby probably knew it too. Z did the right thing.


Well considering I doubt Zetterberg has the heart to fight a very physical player like Crosby I doubt we will ever know.

guys, maybe we're missing something here. after all, when it comes to things like this, i always felt that the retaliation should be measured against the offense...

maybe carmen is right, and howie was out of line....after all, its not like it was a MAN doing all that cross-checking on Z...


Well that could explain why Zetterberg refuses to man up and defend himself...

ya guys ever see any of our guys start cross checking or hitting someone at the end of a game that we didnt win? i dont recall any

Just two recent examples.

Rivalry games tend to incite frustration at the end of games. I think it's a good thing. And it doesn't just happen when Crosby is on the ice.

i love how nhl.com says "sid scraps with wings goalie howard" howard took him out sidney didnt even touch howard, therefore title should say howard handles crosby


Or Crosby decided not to unleash his superior fighting skills against a young rookie.

What a citizen that Crosby fellow is.

I've gotta say... I was hoping when I saw Bertuzzi spit out the mouthguard and charge at cindy there was going to be another moore type incident.. way to get my hopes up Bert.


Classy.

This would be true if there were 100 or so Red Wings fans. Not every single Wings fan called into the station to give their opinion. It's a silly radio bit and has zero bearing on anything. Using it as some sort of justification is idiotic.


I just used it because someone said there wasn't one Wing fan that had that opinion. And it seems there are more then one that's all.

It's not fair to dismiss people's bitching about Crosby's dirty plays simply because Ovechkin does it, too.

Why?

Because Ovechkin actually gets punished for his transgressions. The league wouldn't suspend Crosby if he intentionally jammed his skate into a player's throat. They'd just call him "competitive."


Let me know when Crosby ends someone's season. Ok?

You're right. A radio poll is great evidence of such and an excellent cross section of the majority opinion. Are you kidding me?


Considering it's Detroit's biggest radio station? I'm by no means saying it's a scientific fact, but I was just using it to show that there are some people that hate Crosby so much that they would go against Yzerman...

Crosby was taking cheap shots at Z's back. We all know that Z doesn't have the best back in the world and Crosby knows that too. It was completely intentional and was beyond showing emotion. It was intent to injure and being a giant *****.


Oh. My. God. You really think Crosby was trying to severely debilitate Zetterberg? Wow.

Have you people never watched a hockey game before? It's not like scrums at the end of the games only happen when Sidney is on the ice...
