This video shows Crosby's antics and the whole world can see again and again why he should be ashamed of himself.
I think even die-hard Pens fans are ashamed of him already. Look at the comments on YouTube, not a word in Crosby's defense:
iam embarassed that hes canadian lol
Crosby needs to get his act together hes starting to get a little too full of himself after getting to the finals last year, if he was such a good guy then why dont his teammates stick up for him? Everyone on that team loves Malkin and hates Sid and with good reason Malkin should be the face of the franchise not sid, sid isnt even a top 3 center in the nhl
i hate crosby. hes so jealous of ovechkin
Crosby a little baby when someone gives you hardly a nudge when you get off the ice you dont try to them over the bench
And Crosby better watch who he's messin with cuz weve all seen ovechkin play rough and that little boy doesn't want none o' that
Sid the Kid can just suck it!
So I'll just say it Crosby is a little crybaby who is just plain ol' jealous of Ovechkin. I really don't get the big deal over the guy, he's ok, but sit back and watch the master!!!!
I love how Crosby says that Ovie pushed him from behind. If that's a push than Crosby's crosscheck was attempted murder. I wish that he would shut the fuck up and just play. At the moment I'm kind of embarassed that he's Canadian.
sidney crosby is a straight p**sy
yoo crosby is a lil b!tch! OVIE HAS CANADIAN PARENTS! he has too.. u guys kno he plays like it.
i hope ovechkin beats his ass
By brushing him ever so gently? Ovie basically just skated in front of him and Sid lost his temper because he has terrible composure. We've seen this before, Atl vs Pit years ago, he needs to calm down, he has had terrible discipline all season, probably because him and Malkin have to carry the whole team as nobody is doing anything to help them out.
Sid the bitch once again proves me right man up and play like a man you little shit if ove was canadian everyone would be on his dick like they are sid the bitch
F**** hate how crosby is like i was skating to my bench, when ovechkin hit me, when if you watch at 7 seconds in crosby actually starts it.
Yep, like one GM said, Ovechkin is as Canadian as Gordie Howe...
Off-day: Another Crosby's whine (Feb. 23, 2009)
Thanks to Marge (see comments) for pointing it out:
Crosby had a post-practice interview today, and he used the whole interview to go after ovie, calling him dirty and a head hunter. it is quite the little fire starter. he's lost all my respect, and there wasn't much to begin with
Reporter: We’re use to seeing the edge between Malkin and Ovechkin, and you got sort of an edge between you and Ovechkin in the game against the Capitals, did that come from the last game, or did that sort of generate in the course of 3 periods yesterday?
Crosby: It’s probably been four years *scoffs* I mean we’ve always had some good battles, I don’t know if for some reason he’s starting to run around a bit more, he’s coming after me a little bit more, obviously he’s gone after Geno many cases before so that just makes things a little more intense, that’s just the way it is.
Reporter: Did you hear about what he said? That you talk too much.
Crosby: Yes *scoffs* I think I only talked to him when he ran me a couple times so that’s the only talking I did and he talked back to me, so I guess if I do he does too.
Reporter: What was that wave, what was that?
Crosby: I don’t know, I mean he taunts and does those things. I don’t think that’s the way to play, I mean all I’m all for playing hard, I think he’s a great player, he plays hard, there’s no doubt, he doesn’t need to take runs. He went at Geno’s head probably three shifts before he went after me. He’s hitting to hurt guys in the head.
Reporter: Is it nice to know those two have patched things up so you don’t have to worry about him during a game
Crosby: Well he still got ran right before that so I don’t know if things are patched up but it’s not quite as bad as it was before, so that’s good. It’s a rivalry that’s to be expected. We all realize that, we’ve been on the winning side of things in the past, this year we’ve lost to them. That’s hockey, all that stuff aside the games are good for everyone but you don’t need everyone chasing each other around out there.
Then loosely quoted. A reporter asks Crosby what it is like seeing a guy with such skill play so physical and unexpected of a player who normally has enforcers to do that stuff instead, how it is different seeing a superstar give hits too.
Crosby responds with comments about Iginla and Shane Doan how they are such good hockey players but also a physical source as well. And then goes on to say…
Crosby: but there’s a difference, those guys are hitting hard, don’t get me wrong if they see a guy with his head down they are going to finish him, that’s hockey, but they’re not taking ten strides and jumping at a guy or hitting him after the whistle. There’s a respect factor there and I think that’s important.
Reporter: Is he always going after people’s head?
Crosby: I don’t know if it’s necessarily going after people’s heads, it’s the taking ten strides and the odd times his hands are up a little bit. You know that’s a strength as well, he’s a physical presence out there and you can’t take that away from him but there’s a way to do it I think.
Loosely quoted again a reporter asks how Crosby deals with it. And Crosby says that he knows he doesn’t have the size to get into a hitting match with the person, but he is not going to shy away either. Then another reporter asks about enforcers and how they are no longer the only guys who can be physical and how guys who do love to go at it with one another have to stay within the size so to speak and how that can be a factor in a game. Then Crosby responds with….
Crosby: At the end of the day it comes down to respect and the way I learned how to play the game was heart. You’re going to have guys you hate to play against. Look at Orps on our team, I’m sure guys hate to play against him, he gives a hack and a whack here and there, those are challenges you look forward to in a game. (then he lists off player son other teams, that he enjoys playing because of the physical challenge and continues…) but those guys aren’t taking runs at anybody or going after their heads either.
Loosely quoted the reporter goes I guess what I’m getting at is people were saying Orpik don’t go after Brashear and maybe that was a point in the game where a fight needed to happen but that there is this rule, written or understood that big guys only go after big guys. Then Crosby says Brashear probably would’ve went in Orpik would’ve wanted to and how he would have had an advantage then goes on to say…
Crosby: But you’re never going to fix that stuff, guys are going to go hard at each other as long as it’s in good nature and for the pure fact of doing what it takes to win and in the right way.
ok not only does he take every oppurtunity to call Ovie dirty and a head hunter but he contradicts himself constantly. A slight bump while crossing paths to the benches hardly qualifies as coming after you Crosby so stop making it sound like Ovie was gunning for you the whole night. He also talked the whole game between benches chirping and running his mouth so don't say it was just when you and Ovie bumped. When did Ovie run Malkin yesterday, yes other games Ovie has destroyed Geno with hits but this game he didn't so stop refrencing past games and try to pass them off as yesterday's game. OMG it was so hard listening to this inetrview and then having to repeat it and copy it down word for word but the rediculousness of it was too much to bear. The slight glimmer of respect I had for him is gone now.
