The entire "article" is written based on 1 tweet from a Toronto Sun reporter, which is linked inside the "article". But i'll provide here for reference:

Sidney Crosby's agent is convinced Zdeno Chara of the Bruins intentionally punched Crosby where he had broken his jaw in Game 1. Nasty.

The rest of that original "article" is nothing more than a slanted opinion piece with wild speculation. It also leaves out the fact that the same quoted Toronto Sun reporter has subsequent tweets that say Crosby had nothing to do with the release of the video:

Shame Crosby getting blame for suggestion Chara took shot at his broken jaw. Came from his concerned agent. Player knew nothing.

So Crosby's a whiner. Lemieux was a whiner. And Gretzky was a whiner. Funny how the very bets get torn down in this way. #hockeyeatsitsown

Whatever you want to believe can be up to the individual. However, you can't just selectively take tweets from a reporter to make your argument while at the same time leaving out other tweets that completely contradict your point, and then expect your argument to hold up. That just doesn't make sense. Its lazy journalism at best. And probably shouldn't even be considered journalism at all.

I thought this thread was going to be about cooking a pork shoulder.

HEADLINE: Sidney Crosby’s Accusation Against Zdeno Chara Another Low Point For The Face Of The NHL

Well, Crosby’s not even doing the complaining himself


So much for journalistic integrity.

I'm puzzled why it got released too, but it's not that big of a deal. Chara wasn't even looking at Crosby so who cares.

It's hard to take this article seriously when in the second paragraph he contradicts what he wrote in the first paragraph. Also, there are multiple other contradictions throughout the article.

What's really going on here is that hockey "writers" have to use **** like this to keep people interested in the product they promote. Problem with the NHL is that the playoffs are too long unless you're team is in it. No one outside of Chicago and Boston besides maybe Pittsburgh and L.A. give a rat's *** about the NHL now. So this clown has to use names like Chara and Crosby to generate interest no matter how offbase and foolish his publications are.

Hahahaha I guess someone can tell Lucic that Iginla's decision wouldn't have mattered anyway. :lol:

Happy to see Boston's insufferable fans in mourning.
