I think the biggest thing is getting pucks to the net quicker. What I mean by that is that we are trying to get rebounds off these bombs from the points which are mostly being blocked or deflected. I would like to see us use wrist shoots more often and aim for the goalies pads instead of his chest.
Another thing I see are soft floating slow passes that get picked off and what is funny about that it is usually guys like Datsyuk that do it. Passes should be crisp, accurate, and just enough zip on them so the defenders cannot reach it with a stretched out stick.
At the beginning of the year Mo really got on my nerves with his floating on the point of the PP and he still does it. When the puck gets cleared I notice he usually just looks at the bench and signals for his replacement to go chase it. I get really pissed when I see him do that.
You can usually tell when the team is frustrated with the PP, that's when they start to shoot it in then not chase it down.
I don't see any controversy. The puck wasn't under control by the goaltender, and then it found it's way into the back of the net. That's a goal any day of the week.
What the hell do you people want? Want him to just skate to the bench and never show emotion? The expectations you put on this kid are ridiculous, just sit back and enjoy his skill, he's the greatest player in the generation and I'm at a loss for words why people are losing out on great entertainment because they are jealous we don't have Crosby on our team.
He was telling the ref to review the play, do you think he was telling the ref "HEY IM SIDNEY CROSBY AWARD ME A GOAL AT ONCE" come on now, the ref just said to him something along the lines of "we'll look at it calm down", like any other ref would if the same situation happened to any other team.
The ref lost sight of the puck and blew the whistle before the puck crossed, no goal. Play is dead when he decided to blow the whistle also he has like 1 sec of intent timing, considering how they called May's goal last year inconsistency makes it a controversy.
