I could understand being upset that the team took NO action, but expecting even the skilled players to fight is just stupid. Again, go ask the Pens board if they would expect that of Crosby. Youd get laughed out of there, maybe even get a Trolling infraction. Thats how insanely stupid the idea is.
Except Crosby has fought. See the video above of Crosby sticking up for Malkin. Yes, every player has his role, but sometimes players need to step outside of their comfort zone -- which clearly our team was not prepared or willing to do when it happened.
