This is exactly the article I've been waiting for to make all my doubts and disappointments about Sid's playoff performance go away entirely in one quick and clean swoop.

People like to use the word "embarassing". Whose actually embarrassed by anything that goes on with a sports team?

So it now appears that having the NHL pros play in the Olympics cost us Pens fans some significant entertainment value during the final third of the season and playoffs, due to injuries apparently suffered in Sochi to Paul Martin and Crosby. Season ticket holders deserve a partial refund since the injuries occurred while not playing for the Pens. And now they are talking about doing a hockey world cup in a year or two. Ugh!

And can we now say that this is the 4th year in a row that the Pens playoff chances were more or less ruined by a Crosby injury?

they don't look embarrassed. not by the team anyways. like...i think a lot of people here should be personally embarrassed. but that isn't caused by the pens.

They lost 7-1 to Germany, at home (Brazil has never lost at home in 70+ years), in the World Cup they were hosting. They were embarrassed. Brazilian newspapers wrote stuff like "the biggest humiliation in its 100-year soccer history."

I'm not. I am often embarrassed by what goes on with a fan base that I am clearly a part of though.

There is nothing wrong in having a wrong opinion when dealing with an issue where you don't have all the facts to properly asset the problem. We all had theeroies of what was going on with Sid but when you find a smoking gun you can't help but to let it come to light and put the story into perspective.

does sidney crosby cover his bad wrist of the ice and then on the ice when his glove flips of his bad wrist is exposed ala Newman asking to try on a new hat recently bought from a flea market while trying to pick up a woman complimenting the hat

I've really been trying to avoid this thread like the plague, but here goes....

Not sure if this has been mentioned thus far, but do you know who else had wrist surgery after the playoffs? Jonathan Quick.

Are you really trying to make a comparison there?

Because there really isn't any.

They actually haven't decided whether he will have surgery, per the Pens twitter account.

speculating on what level of discomfort an athlete is experiencing or what level they should play through is gross. you can't say that sid should have played better. all you can say is that he played poorly.

my only gripe is that he was really lousy on the power play. to the extent that it would have been better without him on it. if the team knew this is the best we were going to get out of sid, i wish they would have strategized a work around. additionally, they shouldn't have butchered an effective 2nd line in order to elevate a hobbled player.

Yeah. It's probably much harder for a goalie to play through a wrist injury than other players.

Because all wrist injuries are the same.

if he injured his wrist it must have been on the golf course.

Years later, Jesse salvages the only amount of funny potential that existed in LetsGoPens.com's worst ever running joke.
