The most annoying part are the type of trophy counting fans that use regular season trophies like that against what kind of player Crosby is and say things like "Crosby went to the hospital, Ovechkin came back to practice..." like a cut on the chin is the same as fracturing your jaw.
I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to see Crosby get the recognition a player like him deserves. I guess we like to try to offset the annoyance of injuries and mishaps by putting it in perspective -- because we know the Cup is what he wants most.
The best was when it was the 2 year argument about Oveckin's "passion"
Apparently because Crosby wasn't jumping up and down like an animal when scoring, he lacked passion. Who took a 2 season break and got fat? Ovechkin. Anyways hes got like 17 goals in the last 15 games, huge scoring run. For a while there I honestly though it was something PED related. It just doesn't make sense to go from 65 goals, most dominating physical winger, possibly ever to struggling to hit 30 goals, in under 2 years without injuries.
