Oh I forgot it was the IIHF and IIHF hockey fans that were paying Crosby and not the Pittsburgh Penguins, NHL and NHL fans. Silly me.

I also do not know what it is like to be a human being and to be broken down and need time to recover from 8-9 months of grueling physical activity. I am pretty sure, like robots, these "athletes" can play 365 days a year without physical and mental breakdown just to appease the 12 IIHF viewers that might be watching this irrelevant hockey tournament
