I always had a feeling with the financial trouble the Penguins were going through that somehow Crosby was going to wind up there. Then the draft comes and "ironically" the Lighting who just happened to win the Cup the year before the lockout get the 30th pick overall. As soon as I saw that I knew the fix was in. I'll never be convinced otherwise. I wouldn't trust Bettman walking down the block to buy me a pack of gum.

And I'll agree with you guys on this call. It was garbage. Even I'll admit that. As soon as the penalty was called I said out loud you have to be kidding me.
