Call it whatever you want, there is a lot of chaos and order in what you see as hockey. Superstition reigns supreme in hockey and to be as "good" as Crosby is..... I believe there are other things going on that our best theories simply don't have answers for.
I've eaten crow, and been called worse than a dolt.
Personally I just chalk everything negative to the team has crap happens and nothing more. I don't believe in superstitions and I don't believe "hockey gods" would have it out for a certain player or a team just because they won a lottery or because a player on that team is very good, because if that's the case the Edmonton Oilers will be in huge trouble in the future by the hockey, because after all they got the #1 pick THREE years in a row. That obviously will come with dire consequences if we really believe in this school of thought.
Pretty sad that many of you really believe the crap he's spewing.
