That's great, i'm a patriot and proud canadian. Crosby saved our ass. That said, one goal does not redeem him for disappearing the rest of the tournament. He scored 3a against norway (congrats!), 1g against the swiss (important), 1g against the yanks (insurance), 1g against the germans (insignificant), NOTHING against the russians (thankfully we didnt need him), NOTHING against the slovaks (thankfully we didnt need him), and then the OT winner vs the yanks.

He had a bad tournament. He should've been much better, but he disappeared in the games that mattered. Yet, he is praised across the country because he scored the one goal that mattered the most. So yeah, hate.
You're right, he was invisible. It's still hilariously ridiculous to hate a guy because he had an average Olympic tourney.

Talking about invisible in the tournament, Martin Brodeur shat the bed and so did Joe Thornton. Do you ''hate'' them too?

Seems to me that you, and many of his haters, have no good reason too hate on him, you just don't like the exposure and the praise he gets. Basically, you hate him because he's the best player in the world and that the media is all about Crosby. How is that his fault? Hate the media, not the player.

And would also love to know how he behaves and what makes you hate that said behaviour. Does he go around saying he a big deal and acts like he's the ****?

Edit: Thinking about it.. I shouldn't be surprised. Same thing happens to Lebron James, Tom Brady, etc.. Notice the trend.

I blame the Flyers. They started this whole "Crybaby Sid" thing in the media (pretty ironic there), and then anyone was sick of media talking about Crosby hopped on that bandwagon. I'll admit he did whine a lot, but now, he's no different than any other star player.

Sid talks to the refs just as much as Alfie does. The difference is that people perceive one as leadership and the other as whining. You wanna talk about embellishment? So do Alfie (a lot) and Karlsson. I'm not afraid to admit that because unlike others, I'm not a total homer.

I hate crosby's sneer, I hate his smile, I hate how he complains after every whistle, I hate how he gets favorable treatment, I hate how he acts tough and then gets the league to change the rules when he gets hurt, I hate how he gets hurt and then comes back and is the same ****** he always was and then gets hurt again, I hate how he dives, I hate how he plays dirty, I hate how he gets phantom assists, I hate how he acts in interviews, I hate the team he plays on, I hate how he gets so much attention, I hate matt cooke.

Yet it's weird how other players can achieve success and not be hated? Notice the trend? The guy's that act like douches everyone hates, the guys that don't everyone loves.

Now, that's dedication to hating.

I laughed.

EDIT: I can proudly say I've never hated a player in my life, and nor do I plan on hating on one. I dislike Kadri and Subban, but I will never discredit their talent (or make up stuff about them) just to justify my dislike towards them.

Great arguments you have there, brah. You helped me realize how much of a ****** Crosby is.

I also hate how he breathes. I hate how he has two legs. I hate how his sweat drips down his face after practice. I hate how he looks at those reporters when he responds to their questions. I hate how he chose #87. I hate how he smiles when he's happy.

What a ****ing ******.

Iginla did all the work on that goal. I have way more respect for him than I'll ever have for Crosby.

Agreed. That would be ideal, if we win.

Let's be real, I expect no less than Sid to dominate next Olympic. He was just getting his feet wet that year. Imagine if they'd taken him back in 2006. He'd have killed it in 2010.

His second run to the SCF showed how much experience helps a player.

Florida has a -61 goal differential... MINUS SIXTY ONE!

That's almost double the next worst team.






... Ridiculous.

Sad part is Ottawa only has four more goals than Florida. Thank god for the Senators' goaltending this season. Works out for Florida that the #1 prospect is a stud defenseman I guess.

A young Core of Huberdeau, Gudbranson, Jones, Howden, Bjugstad, Shore and Kulikov and Markstrom is something Panther fans can look forward to.

Edit: Forgot Kulikov

The hate for Crosby is ridiculous. He will go down as one of the all-time greats.

Ok, I'm being good and not going to the Leafs Kessel thread(s) and congratulating him on having almost as many goals as Tlusty!
