so... as of the opening face off of last night half of that quote is true, so who votes Crosby to man up and fight Carbomb?
As I will say I respect Crosbys skill, but as a human being and somewhat of his playing style and skill I can't stand him! BUT, if Crosby drops gloves with Carbomb I will have MUCH more respect for him.
I can't see Crosby actually throwing down with a fighter, He's fought Ference, MacLean, Zidlicky, and Ballard...Ballard was for revenge of Malkin after a beautiful hip-check, Zidlicky was after one of Crosby's slash wars, and MacLean he jumped in the faceoff circle because FLA was killing them.
But like GKJ mentioned, he has nothing to gain from it. Maybe if his team was getting bludgeoned in the playoffs and he felt that fighting a scrappy guy would wake them up, then yes...but they have others who can do that.
And Crosby doesn't care if he has your respect, he probably doesn't want it...considering how much he lights us up in our building while that stupid chant rains down upon him.
Does Crosby have any real fights in his career? I mean not counting that time he punched that guy in the gonads from behind and the time he jumped somebody off of a faceoff?
crosby is a *****. did you watch the game 7 with montreal? he ****ing jumped a defenseman (markov?) off the faceoff, for no reason, without warning. crosby got two minutes, and montreal scored 14 seconds into the game. it was clear he was just frustrated because he's a spoiled little brat and he wasn't winning at his game of late.
