The way he repeated "I don't like him, I don't like any of them" and when a reporter said that he could of just skated away he says "Well I didn't this time." He came off like a child. It was really pathetic to look at.
That said, I really didn't have any problem with pushing the glove away. Of course that's a silly, immature thing to do, but I think it plainly had a purpose. He's doing whatever he can to try and get the Flyers off their game and get his team back revved up. Of all the things that happened yesterday that bothered me the least by far.
But he can only do it this way because he knows the refs and the league have his back. He's like a spoiled rich kid acting all tough because he has a bodyguard to do his dirty work.
Bobby Clarke would have said nearly the same things in the post-game interview regarding the incident. Let's be honest.
But Bobby Clarke would have dropped the gloves and settled it himself.
Not just Bobby Clarke. ANY HOCKEY PLAYER would have settled it themselves. This is why people bash Crosby for being such a baby.
It's like after he got cross checked from behind a few weeks ago by Schenn after the play was dead, and he sat up and looked for the refs to make a call. My fiancee, who only watches hockey because of me, asked "why didn't Crosby get up and punch that guy in the face?"
