What was up with Sid last night?

Postby Mango Salsa on Sat Apr 01, 2006 8:11 am

After his goal he looked upset & looked like he was giving the line hell.

Then on the bench more of the same. At the end of the period he sat there by himself after everyone else left & just looked kinda disgusted.

Watch starting about 1:45. http://boss.streamos.com/wmedia/penguin ... p_700k.asx

I was thinking that part of him not celebrating after the goal was the fact that we were already up 2-0. Might have seemed llike he was rubbing it in. But, I do remember seeing him sitting on the bench after one of the periods..no idea what was up with that.

Far be it for me to defend 87, but everything looked normal to me. What was the problem? He wasn't yelling at anyone. Go eat some roast duck. :twisted:

It looked like he was laughing and saying something to Andy like: "You should have shot that"

So everyone harps on Sid for showing too much emotion and now he tones it down for a night and everyone gets on him for that too?

Seriously all the talking after the goals is totally normall, he was definetely laughing about something on the bench after his goal. Armstrong never shuts up at any time and to be honest Sid and Colby are talking all the time on the bench anytime I have seen shots of them and its part of the chemistry they have as a line.

I did not see him sitting on the bench between periods but its possible the Islanders TV crew may have wanted to interview him or the radio crew and that is their process for it. I know the TV people have more access to players this year, and its a good thing, during the game and that may be how the Isles do it. Maybe someone who watched the Isles feed or listened to their radio feed can help out.

People need to leave the kid alone. I know that is never going to happen because of the hype that will surround him forever but just appreciate his talent and let him be a kid. Its not just the people on this board its the national media, opposing players, etc. There will forever be jealousy surrounding Sid from opponents and other media so that will never go away but he is only going to play for so long so just appreciate what you are seeing on the ice.

I imagine he would have preferred the pass have been to his forehand, but I didn't see anything in that clip that looked out of the ordinary to me other than he didn't look all the happy to have scored. That could have been from a bad pregame meal or because Armstrong farted for all I know. :lol:

What bugged him about that was that he was calling for it on the forehand. He was tapping his stick and everything and Hilbert just threw it over there and he did so poorly. If that was any other player on this team it is no gola because of a poor pass. I cant say enough about what a talented play that was by Crosby.

Also, did anyone else notice Armstrong sticking his finger up Crosby's visor during the goal celebration? Frickin hilarious how Army tortures the guy with face washes and stuff. He is definately keeping his ege in check and I hope they are having fun out there because there isnt much left to play for otherwise. :D

The Isles announcers suggested that Crosby may have been injured since he was stretching a lot.

BTW when Sid was sitting on the bench after the 2nd it was probably because the Isles TV people interviewed him during that intermission.

:lol: That is actually very funny. Crosby stretches like that all the time. Before, during, and after almost every single warm-up. I thought it was excessive too but all that stretching is exactly why he wont get injured too often throughout his career. Very smart man.

Jesus Christ people. I love Sid & I'm not trying to bring him down, I just wondered what was up. He looked pissed off to me, especially on the bench.

I went back & watched the recording I have & he still looks upset to me.

nope, he looks fine...but even if he was unhappy on occation, how can he be always happy if he's on a losing team for the first time in his career...He even said, that he does not know how to lose, it's something new to him, that's why he's got over 100 PM this year.

See, when I saw it at the time [I'll admit I didn't re-watch it] it looked to me as though he was taking a moment to compose his thoughts before going off to do an interview. I don't think he looked particularly upset at all - just serious. :)

:evil: Sidney can't believe Brooks Orpik got a call for the World Championship and Canada hasn't called him yet. :evil:

just teasing :lol:
I shudder, shudder, thinking about the media glare Sidney & others have
in their daily lives.

Even on a recording 24 hours later, he was still upset?

He was interviewed by the Isles' Deb Kaufman (sp?) during one of the intermissions. I think it was the second intermission.

Having said that I thought he did seem mad about something after scoring his goal. Maybe he's tired of people sticking fingers under his visor after he scores. :shock:

After the game Andre Roy lightly punched Crosby in the face. He clearly wasn't happy with that.

That may have been one of Roy's better punches of the season...;)

I still say Sid looked sour because Armstrong farted. Cheese farts are nasty.

I thought it was odd when he was still sitting on the bench after most people were at the runway. It could be something, it could be nothing. Maybe he was basically waiting for the refs or a specific opposing player to leave so that he wouldn't be tempoted to do or say something... Or maybe he is contemplating asking CP for a trade... never know.... lol.
