Your saying Crosby did do something in the Gold Medal came to get his team to overtime?

And by the way, getting the game winning goal tends to be a pretty huge thing. I'm not saying Crosby suddenly is god for getting it - after all, it was just a good play with a bit of chance on the side and a play any player with a good head on his shoulders could get (not to mention Iggy working his ass off to create the pass) - but his career as a whole? Love him or hate him, his career speaks for itself.
2> Series moved up 8 days. against the league rules. Red wings played Injured.
3> Malkin played Game 3 after an instigator penalty in the final 5 mintues of game 2. 3 Assists is a pretty friggen good night for a guy who shouldnt have been on the ice.
4> 7 Men on the ice. 35 Seconds. Red Wings bench point it out. Fans Screaming about it. No Call. Refs must have been deaf.
5> Talbots first goal. Icing. Wasn't called. so umm, what happened that the refs dropped the ball on something there ALWAYS on top of?
6> with the Goal in OT at the Gold medal Game: How many people Remember Iginla passed it to the golden boy? how many people remember that it took the rest of team Canada to force overtime to give the golden boy his chance? yeah, no one.
My point is this: he's had a damn good career.
A fully healthy Wings team would put up a good fight against a fully healthy Canucks team. I hope they meet in the playoffs because it has potential to be one of the best series I've seen in a long time.
Wings fan here by the way, I still give the Canucks the edge. They are absolutely murdering the Hawks and frankly their domination scares me
He had ZERO contribution to his team when it should have mattered most, the first 3 periods of the Gold Medal game
He had very minimal impact on the Stanley Cup Finals. the Best player in the league should not be shut down one on one, and Zetterberg had him all but shut down. 7 Games, 1 Goal, 2 Assists, for the supposed best player in the league. Sorry, thats not that good.

No matter what we say, this will likely not end well. I'm just making a simple point in regards to his career. But even if I were to humour you and say Crosby's one SC is illegitimate, like Kobe during the early 00s era minus his 3 rings, Crosby's career is still pretty impressive.
I hope that makes sense.
Really? sorry, i have respect for Letang, S. Weber, Tim Thomas, Price, Rinne, Theodore, the Sedin Twins, Semin, Stamkos, Lecavalier, and a lot of others, i just do not have respect for someone who is shoved down our throats. show me a player who gets half the media attention crosby does. YOU CAN'T. is Crosby skilled? YES! is he as good as he is made out to be? HELL NO! that is the difference. No one but him is made out to be more than they are, save Ovie.
John Scott is in tonight for Chicago to deliver some whoop-ass. Maybe now our skill guys can get the chance to shine and stick it to Vancouver.
Luongo will be shaving early again.
Being more of a NBA guy myself, it's sort of like how everyone talks about LeBron, Kobe, KD, Derrick Rose and on and on, but then players like Zach Randolph, despite putting up 20-10 numbers consistently, is virtually unheard of outside of Memphis.
Theres no conspiracy behind a guy like Cooke who can send to the hospital a shitload of talented player (Savard, Markov.. ) without getting any suspension.
Btw who was the coach and the manager of Team Canada, yeah thats right, Babock and Yzerman, and crosby scored, but he hasnt been dominant during the tournament like Rafalski was for Team USA, oh and btw its not that hard to be a 90+ point scorer when the strategy of the team is focused on one guy who never have to worry about TOI or stuff like that..
If crosby was a terrible player people wouldnt take about him. People say o enough about crosby already, well he was projected to get 132 pts this year if he didnt get hurt. Hes easily the best player in the NHL. Im not trying to say he is as good as grektzky but back in the 80s everyone outside of edmonton hated the oilers.
