Just realized, #Penguins appear to be having team photo day on a day when captain Sidney Crosby excused for personal reasons.

:scared:


He is back in Canada (eh) to attend a funeral.

Morrow is certainly honoring the #10 well.

Ever seen Crosby fight? He's jumped guys off the faceoff, he didn't wait for the other person to be ready. He's punched a guy in the jewels, and I'd consider that a cheapshot. He's challenged guys while wearing a visor, and he's also fought while wearing his helmet.

Don't throw stones, we're not perfect here either! It's amazing how people just ignore what we do here and think the rest of the league is evil and cheap. Take off your Pens glasses, we're no angels here either.

That's BS. While Crosby has taken the occasional cheap shot, he doesn't do that crap day in and day out, as Subban does.

-that Galchenyuk guy looks like a complete and total monster, but the habs are in quite a downward spiral
-subban was a disgrace in that fight. though it pains me to say that he may have bogarted the visor+cheap shot strategy from TK. i love most kennedy fights, but he's been known to do the same thing.
-bennett and adams should be swapped in and out of the lineup. adams isn't needed on this team anymore. bennett is too good to permanently sit.
-glass is hitting and hitting hard.
-morrow scoring...who knew?

There's always Photoshop!

EDIT: Or maybe they're taking the C away from Sid and giving it to Iginla. :pop:

- Morrow is in playoff form
- Loved seeing Murray get one, and the celebration (or lack of) was even better. Hope Ovechkin took notes on how to celebrate like you've done it before! :D
- Fleury didn't look sharp, but he got the job done. Hard to pin anything but the first goal on him anyhow.
- Iggy looks like he's starting to get comfortable, but he's got to move his legs!!!
- Speaking of moving legs, do Joe Vitale's ever stop? How is this guy a regular scratch???

Vitale on the PK > Glass on the PK.

Plus, hello, faceoff beast. Those are massive on PKs.

2nd consecutive game with only 2 A's worn (Kunitz, Orpik). Guess this might be different if Geno was not a game time decision?

I have to say, while I'm a huge Crosby-apologist, this guy is right. It's been some time since Sid pulled that crap, but hey, lets call a spade a spade. Sid has done it.

I don't understand why we are even talking about Sid? It's not relavent to what Froggy is saying. "You can't say that because this same thing happened four years ago.." is a pretty weak argument. And Sid certainly never acted like a 6 year old in the box after an altercation. That's what is at the root of all the Subban hate today.

TK loses assist from last night, now credited to Letang (giving him a 3 point night, now only 3 points back of Subban)

No BS about it. I never once said that Crosby was as dirty as Subban, but he has pulled the odd cheap shot, which every player does.

My point was that the OP was blasting Subban for not waiting for Morrow to be ready, for picking a fight with a visor, and for fighting with a helmet on.....how soon we forget that Crosby has done all of those things in all of his fights.

As I said, don't throw stones, we're no angels here either.

So does anyone think Letang gives them a discount signing, if not what would a return be for him?

Me too! It's a shame we won't be facing the Flyers in the playoffs this year. :cry: :cry: :cry:


Although I’m generally not a fan of fighting, I do make exceptions. I must confess, for example, to deriving considerable (no doubt too much) enjoyment from the Morrow-Subban tête-à-tête...and the mere thought of someone cleaning Brayden Schenn’s clock has me positively salivating.

I don't think Sid had to be brought up, but people have been pretty vocal with their complaints about PK's crap when Sid has done the same stuff in his career.

It's hockey, and PK is good for the league. A hero at home, and a villain everywhere else type player. I'd like more of them.
