People call Crosby a whiner when he complained once to a ref in the game ALONG with other players. Every single game played players complain to refs but any time someone on the Pens does it esp Crosby then people freak out and say OMG look at that cry baby. I know most of it is because people hate the best players but man its pretty brutal listening to it constantly. I mean honestly can anyone say in the past few years Crosby is constantly dogging the refs like people claim he is? I dont think so at all and i have watched 80-90% of the games.
Malkin's fight was stupid and all but how is that acting like a brat or anything? It honestly was kind of nice to see Geno let it out and fight once and get it out of his system. I dont want him to do it anymore but hockey is about passion and so what he went after somoene ONCE get over it. People act like he and the Pens went around fighting everyone.
Personally i think most games this post season lack intensity and that hatred for one another and it was nice to see some pure hatred going on.
People tend to forget that other teams aren't going to bow down to Malkin and Crosby. I agree with your sentiment 100%. All captains complain to the refs. Crosby is scrutinized more because of his reputation of being a diver.
Malkin gets it because he is not 2009, last year regular season Malkin. Kind of like Metallica taking crap because they no longer sound like their oldselves.
