You know what I've noticed?  Hockey fans are more like NFL fans in that they are more likely to watch any game, regardless of who's playing.
So far, I think I have only missed one game and it was one of the late ones early on.  I usually have hockey on my TV, phone and tablet all at the same time during the first round.

I hope the Caps knock off the Penguins.  I hate Crosby.  I also hate Dumoulin.  Notwithstanding the fact that he went to America's premier academic institution, he's soft, so I can't root for him.
I hope so too but I wouldn't put any money on it.

You hate Crosby?

Why because he's so damn good?  and kicks the ass of every other player on the planet?  jealous.

And he gets more cheap shots against him than all of the other star players combined.  Had his career derailed by a ridiculous head shot, yet no penalty or suspension of the asshole that did it.  

Sure he has committed his share of cheap shots too.  But try to imagine that YOU are the best at what you do and the league curtails your incredible talents at the expense of thuggery.   You wouldn't be pissed off too?

Grow up and root for the talented players to be allowed to use their talents to make the game all that it can be.

NHL is still a god damn joke.

You need to switch to decaf.  Hockey is a contact sport.  Deal with it.

I hate him because he's a dirty player who whines about people being too physical with him.

You need to actually pay attention to the game dude.

He gets hit with more cheap shots than anyone in the game.

Sure hockey is physical, but people like you think dirty is cool.  Basically people that don't like Sid are jealous of his success.

If the NHL would get rid of the cheap shots and penalize those cheap shots then the game would be SO much better.

Crosby's play is genius at times. This was OT in game 3 of first round of  the playoffs, against the Blue Jackets.  The way he keeps control of the puck in the small space behind the net and then gets it to Guentzel for the winning goal is amazing.

Just so R N B and Troutman know that I am not living in a Pittsburgh bubble- my daughter lives in Caps territory and is a die hard Caps fan!  She just sent this to me, the stinker!!

Let me know where I said I think dirty is cool.  The idea that people don't like Crosby solely because they're jealous of him is beyond silly.  He's a dirty player.  He whines about people being physical with him.  Do you follow the sport before April?

You have every right to be a fan of his.  I root for Marchand to score goals.  But I wouldn't be stupid enough to say he's not a dirty player.  Some fanboys think it's a sign of weakness to admit someone on the team you root for has flaws.

He's a phenomenal stickhandler and skater.  Some people unfortunately don't seem to understand that you can be a dirty player who whines too much AND have both of those skills.  

Like, say, Crosby.  ;)

I heard numerous players say that this particular slash is done all the time by all players.  This one was just unfortunate.  So move on.

Sens blueliner Erik Karlsson defended the play, calling it unintentional, despite the injury to his teammate.

“[Crosby] puts his stick in as [Methot] is trying to shoot the puck in and unfortunately it hits his finger,” Karlsson said. “It turned out worse than most other times. Plays like that happen all the time, but I don’t think it was intentional or dirty.”

I said in my posts that Crosby has had his share of giving out some cheap shots or did you selectively forget that i wrote that?

I don't like Crosby because he might catch Toews and co. in number championships this year. And maybe because he gets asslicking from everyone involved in doing a hockey game on NBC. As far as cheap shot artists go, every team has them, so arguing who is worse makes little sense. Off the ice, Kane has had more trouble than perhaps anyone else in the league, yet I have no problem rooting for him, and I understand why people from other cities do not. Talking about the Hawks, the team fired defensemen coach Kitchen yesterday, thus finding a scapegoat for Quenneville. I know the D gave up 13 goals in four games against the Predators, but I didn't see anything different Keith and the rest have done this year than in the past seasons. The Keystone Kops look and soft defending has always been part of this group. What about scoring three times in the series and having a terrible power play? I guess Dinnen hasn't been with the Hawks long enough to get fired. P.S. Where have all of you guys been during the regular season. I hated talking to myself for seven months. :boohoo:

People hate Crosby because he is the greatest of his generation.  Haters love to hate on the great ones.
