To change the topic a bit.....

I am so tired of the hatred towards Crosby. Maybe it is because my son-in-law is a Pens fan and I can take the hate glasses off and see him from the other side. He is a fierce and passionate competitor who will do anything to win. If he were a NYR, we'd love him. The things he does to irritate us, we would forgive and applaud. We accepted Ulf Samuelson, Sean Avery, Matthew Barnaby, and other players who were among the most hated players in the league and hated by us until they got here.

He takes his role as the best player and the spokesperson for the game and symbol of hockey seriously. Everything he did over the last few weeks was done with the best intentions. Sure he wants to get back on the ice and earn his big bucks (who wouldn't?) and that was of course part of his motivation, but he thought he could have a positive impact for the good of the game.

Give the guy a break. He was acting with the best of intentions.
