I really don't get the hate towards Crosby and Malkin, man when the Habs aren't playing that's the only other team I wanna watch play, incredible stuff happens in every game. That 3rd period was a clinic from both players, could have scored 7-8 goals
And what Crosby has done to Kunitz, 3rd scorer in the league!!!
People dislike Crosby because he acted like a brat for his first couple of years and doubled that by rubbing it everyone's face. But he's grown up a bit, and he's the best. Just a ****ing awesome player.
If anyone dislikes Malkin, it's probably lame good old boy NHL dinosaurs who are against Russian players succeeding in their league of precious hard workin canadian kids like Don Cherry.
I love Tom Nonstoppoulos. But I'm not sure he's the type of player we currently need. We need either top trio scoring with size (Bourque's absence is being felt, having one more like him wouldn't hurt) or a mid pairing puck moving D (Even though Kaberle's been playing well since he came back, I'd still rather get rid of his contract, although when Diaz comes back...). If we're going to replace a player at this point, it's going to have to be through trades, not by picking up bottom trio/pairing players through waivers. I guess we could trade, for example's sake, Armstrong for a pick and pick up Kostopoulos.
