Crosby wanted in Russia?

I don't understand what's going on, but what do all those Russian players have against Crosby?

First it's Ovechkin vs. Crosby ... nothing happened between them on the ice really, but there's a tense rivalry between them on a hockey level, and Ovechkin would do anything to prevent Crosby from shining!

Then it's Kovalchuk vs. Crosby. Kovalchuk scores on the PP, points at Crosby and later calls Crosby "young and stupid".

And finally, it's Zherdev vs. Crosby. They almost fought the other day in Columbus. Pretty good game by the way.

So my question is : did someone in Russia put a price on Crosby's head?

No I dont think so. I think what is happening is more and more players are becoming aware that Crosby is a whiny little *****.

Wasn't the Columbus game, the 6-1 game? If so, how was it a good game?

How is there any sort of conflict between Ovechkin and Crosby? That is 100% entirely a fan thing.

I'm sure Ovechkin is soooooooooooo fed up with Crosby. Do you remember all those interviews before the season where the reporters would only ask Ovechkin what he thinks about Crosby? Alex certainly hates Crosby!!!

Its only going to turn into another thread about how everyone hates Crosby and the Pens fans are trying to defend him.

It's probably a coincidence for the most part. But there are probably some undertones as well. Crosby and Ovechkin met at the world juniors last year and given the unfortunate incident with Ovechkin's shoulder, he came away unfairly labelled a quiter and a whiner. That wouldn't sit well with a proud guy like Ovechkin. Now that he has established himself as a great player on the International level as well as the NHL level, the other really proud and passionate Russians who have played by his side may be subconciously 'backing him up'.

Just a theory, I don't believe for one second that they are intentionally targetting Crosby, but friends back up their friends and countrymen usually back up their countrymen.

I hope this thread is locked.

Too many ill-thought out opinions come out of Crosby threads.

I doubt it. He thinks about his team and about his performance. Why would he bother to hate him? He left it for fans. He needs to play. And play good. Which he does.
