Pussy Sydney Crosby strikes again

Well if you missed it Saturday you missed some more cheap shit by NHL super star Sidney Crosby. Crosby jumps Brett McLean off a faceoff and pulls his sweater over McLean's head and continues throwing punches while McLean can't see. That's pretty classless for a guy who is suppose to be the super star of the NHL. And after the game he says McLean agreed to fight, well if you watch the video below you'll see McLean have no idea what Crosby is doing as he is trying to win the faceoff and Crosby drops the gloves and grabs McLean.



Some quotes from Panthers' Nick Boynton, McLean, and Crosby (source):

We're you hoping he'd get back on the ice? "Oh yeah," Boynton said.

"That was just embarrassing. I can understand a little bit what he was trying to do, but that's a not a very professional move. You ask a guy to fight. You don't jump a guy when his head is down taking a faceoff. That's pretty immature and childish."

"He's just, whatever. He's not happy with the way things are going and he was trying to get his team going. But there's no need for that."

Ever seen someone pull that?

''Not that embarrassing. That was, you know, that's not what the game needs. Whatever. We beat them where it counted and that's all that matters. We needed the points.''

Says Brett McLean:

"Obviously he was trying to spark his team. I've been in a few pretty poor fights in my day, so that just goes into another one of those."

"Last time I was in a fight was two or three years ago when I was in Colorado."

"He said something before the drop but I really didn't pick up on it. So, I kind of wish I had now. Like I said, everyone can understand what he was trying to do for his team. He's their leader, their captain."

Said Crosby: "I asked him to go, and he said yes. And usually, yes means yes. I mean, I wouldn't have wasted 20 minutes in the box for that. I guess he didn't take me serious. I don't know, it wasn't worth 20 minutes, though, that's for sure."

Here's what Crosby told reporters Saturday: "I asked him to go, and he said yes. And usually, yes means yes. I mean, I wouldn't have wasted 20 minutes in the box for that. I guess he didn't take me serious. I don't know, it wasn't worth 20 minutes, though, that's for sure."

After Sunday's game in Montreal, I asked McLean what really happened. After declining comment at first, McLean was a touch more forthcoming.

"You can look at the video," he said, "it speaks for itself."

Did you discuss fighting him? "We had not, at any point. It was as surprising to me as it was to you guys."

Did you ever see it coming? "No I didn't."

Was Sidney jawing at you earlier in the game? "Before the face-off, like I told you yesterday, he was saying something but I didn't really hear it. I didn't know what he was saying, didn't really pay attention to it."

Did you ever say yes to him as he said? "No, I mean, I don't know where that came from."


And in case you missed it in December, Crosby went beyond classless and dirty in my opinion, as he threw punches at Boris Valabik from behind, and at his groin.
