Apparently...it makes no sense.


maybe it's foe list related, but i haven't seen anyone even come close to saying that the importance of awards is comparable to the importance of winning. i guess i could go in the dupuis thread and make some post that says "dupuis' success isn't more important than winning the cup, so chill out". who could argue?

It IS annoying that Sid has to lose out on a scoring title because of this. I really don't think he will lose out on the Hart or the Pearson, though.

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.

I just ventured over to HF unfortunately and stumbled into a Crosby vs Ovie Hart thread. Good lord, was it terrible. People are such idiots (on both sides of the argument). Did you know that Sid's PPG is artificially inflated because he gets so much time to rest and recuperate while he's out with injuries? :face:

The Caps only have fans cause Ovechkin started doing good. Otherwise, it'd be dead as a doornail there.

Can we start a petition that Crosby change his number to a single digit? That should at least minimize all injuries to 1-2 games. Or better yet, he change his last name to Iceburgh. That will make him INVINCIBLE (or kill him :scared: ).

Mashed potatoes...and gravy? Yum. That should put some of the weight back on, but I bet he’d kill for a steak.
