Even though Crosby backed out I think it was a week before the game and skills comp, Posters were still set up in the arena promoting Crosby vs. Brule

Although a lot of the hype Brule was getting around that time leading up to the game may have been because the game was in the Giants home arena and Brule played for the Giants
and after Brule did dominate the game, Cherry want off and said Brule was as good if not better than Crosby. IIRC

You won't see him bring that prediction up ever again.
