In Topic: So, Crosby has his cup..

14 June 2009 - 04:23 PM

My biggest gripe with the marketing of Sidney Crosby, is that he has to be called "the next Gretzky, or the next Mario" (I'm not calling him this, and I dont have a recent link, but you all know you've heard or read that SOMEWHERE since hes been in the league.)

Why can't he just be Crosby? Why were we as hockey fans being told he was the best before he had done anything? Say what you will in aurgument, but if he would have earned his hype, without the help of Bettman, Mario, and the media, I think the league would have a little more respect for him.


As far as I'm concerned, this isn't Sids cup. I think Max Talbot, Malkin, and Jordan Staal layed claim to it while Sid was in the dressing room dressing his wounds.

Mario pushed for him to be the next Pens captain for a reason. I would be thrilled to have Crosby on this team, given how much of a team player he is. On the other hand, outside the realm of what-if's, this team really couldn't afford him, and I wouldn't be willing to wreck this team's chemistry for another superstar.



Of course. By no means am I asking if anyone would want him on this team.

Im not complaining about the officiating, but with all the noise Pens fans have been making about the way our team played Games 1, and 2, after watching Game 3 - as far as I am concerned we're even.

EDIT - if this is TRUE... I still don't see how this works, we're gonna REALLY cap ourselves out if it happens... Kenny must know someone is retiring that's gonna open up some books *cough* Holmstrom *cough*

I second that. Love Hudler.

I really want to believe this, but without solid proof I cant.
Not accusing you of anything though, I promise.
