We all know that since he couldn't do dittle squad at the U-18, that he will impress at the U-20 if he is selected to go. Watch out, all the U-20 records are in jeopardy of being smashed with this kid around!
"Couldn't do dittle at the U18" Crosby was top scorer for Canada as a underage, and finished top 5 in the entire tourney. No place in the tourney... what are you talking about.having an opinion is one thing, but you opinions sound more personal than anything...Hmmm

He was the all-star centre at the 2001 WJC as a 17 year old.

Further to Canada's junior reps in the 1970s. They would send the Memorial Cup champion to the world juniors the year AFTER they won the Memorial Cup, so the best players from the championship team would usually have moved on to the NHL or minors. Also, the '78 team with Gretzky on it was the only true Canadian all-star team from that era. The national team program didn't begin until 1982.

Canada's only chance was Fleury? Haha, right. Please lay off the pipe. Medvedev is no slouch, he is almost as good as Fleury in my opinion. Fleury might have stolen a game or two, but others came through big as well. It wasn't just Fleury and a bunch of no-namers.

And way to backpeddle. You said, in your broken english all be it, that Crosby is the best player in Canada. Not that he is one of the top 12 forwards. I was giving examples of players better than Crosby that will make the U-20 team. If you don't have a clue about the things you put in your posts, maybe its best you just don't post at all. You said Crosby was the best player in Canada, I said Fleury was better. I never said Fleury making the team would have an effect on Crosby making the team.

Let's recap:

I can say I am the best player in Canada, doesn't make it true. You can say Crosby is the best player in Canada, that's just ridiculous. Staal, Horton, Fleury, Coburn, etc. - Crosby is better than all these players? Please tell me you were joking...
So reffree says that Crosby is one of the best players in Canada (his present stats are empirical evidence of his league dominance right now, and the scouting reports which describe his talent are appeals to authority that says his numbers aren't a fluke), and you twist his words into saying that he is the best player in Canada. Then, when reffree rightly said that he never called Crosby the best in Canada, you accuse him of backpeddling and say that he doesn't have a clue about things he puts into his posts. It appears that you don't have a clue what he's putting in his posts, or you feel you need to make strawmen to make your point.

Maybe my Kung-fu Skate Kick of Undeniable Death scared them away...for that I would apologize, but then again...maybe not.

You gave about 5 examples of players that are "locks" to make the team provided they don't make their NHL clubs or are released for the tournament. Are there only 5 players on the team now? Out of the 13 forwards that go, you think that Crosby isn't better than any of them? Is Jeremy Colliton better? Johnathon Filewich? Should we take role players (like last year), or the best players (like the drive for 5 days)?

I have also seen Crosby play countless times and though Daigle had talent which you could see, his drive was not there or dedication on the ice, Crosby has more talent IMO and is very dedicated to being better and to being the best he can be. Your assumption is way off, seems like some people just don't like to give credit where it is due

The fact of the matter is in the 90's the RSL was so underfunded it almost went bankrupt. This equals poor player development and no WJC golds for a while.
Now the RSL is very economically stable to the point where some RSL players earn more than NHL players. Because of this, player development has improved and they've won 3 out of the last 5 WJC golds.

I swear sometimes that some people have no concept whatsoever of good taste.

so why not post about a different prospect yourself then, instead of reading into Crosby posts which seem to be bothering you????????????????

It is funny how some people think as Sidney is on track to possibly being one of the best prospects to come along since Mario Lemieux and you are sick of seeing his name on this PROSPECT post board?????????????
