God damn, you guys all whine like Sidney Crosbys...
We saw Pittsburgh in the finals 2 years in a row. They're officially on our s*** list. We're going to discuss, debate, and ***** about their star player. If you don't want to read it, don't click on the thread. People act like every thread around here gets taken up by "Crosby sucks" comments, and that's not true.
I think its very relevant to discuss this potential Crosby snubbing the ASG thing, because our guys got dinged for doing just that. As for that being rumors and hearsay, so is about 99% of what we post here. This is coming from a semi credible news source as well, its not like someone just picked up the info on a random blog.
Agree, we talk about it, because it's making the news! I'd rather not hear about Crosby, but everything he does is front page news, so I'll react!
Crosby's mad? Really? I'm the first person to cry for a suspension and get thugs out of hockey, but I've seen both hits on Crosby, and neither player I feel should be suspended. The one in the Outdoor game was, no question, an accident, and the one against Tampa looked harmless, just made worse since Cindy already has the concussion.
Edit: Just when I was feeling a little sorry for that snot nosed little punk too!
This is such an interesting statement. After watching Darren and Claude shake hands on OTR a while ago, and thinking about it again today, I was wondering if I should just "let it go". Lemieux crushed Draper's face and instead of apologizing added fuel to the fire the next year saying he made Draper's career, made him another $100,000, and commented on his low goal scoring stats. From what I've read Draper and Lemieux still haven't made amends. Rumor has it Lemieux has tried to call Draper, but Draper hasn't called back (and after the stuff Lemieux said the next season, I don't blame Kris. I don't have time for Lemieux either). Plus Lemieux was one of the biggest cowards in NHL history always picking on guys smaller than him.
To each their own, but personally I feel Lemieux's actions, especially what he said about Draper the next season, is unforgivable... For me anyway.
Edit: From what I've read too, I don't think Claude have ever thought he did anything wrong.
Those two have made up, they get along. Lemieux said he respects McCarty for what he did, and understands it. He said no hard feelings. He said he didn't necessarily Turtle cause he's a *****, but one of McCarty's first punches landed and knocked him dizzy. They've made up, they've moved on. If you still have a problem with it, than I guess it's just that. Your problem.
I guess it's my problem too. Lemieux is a scumbag.
