Do people still believe that Corey Crawford isn't a #1 goalie?

Think of the children!!!

They'll hear the words then or they'll hear them in 10 years. Hardly matters. And in the end, that's all these things are... just words. They are harmless. Relax.

Good for Crawford. He has taken a ton of crap from the media and fans all year long despite playing amazing hockey. He deserves to have his fun, and I don't think he cares (nor should he) what most others think at this point. If he did care, he would've been a lot more upset during the course of the season over how little credit he was given despite playing like one of the best goalies in the league.

You missed his point completely. If you work like a sailor, you get to talk like a sailor. If your grandkids understood that then they'll go far in life. If not, they'll just hover around.

Nothing wrong with dropping a few f bombs after a good year's work.

And I bet your grandsons would have grown up never uttering a curse word in their lives and being the purest beings to grace the Earth had it not been for that MONSTER Corey Crawford. Now they're going to be drug dealers and thugs. Truly awful. Why weren't you a better role model and keep them away from such a barbaric sport? Do they also think knocking someone's teeth out is a good way to resolve a stolen ball after watching hockey games? Cursing, or rather simply hearing some curses at 6, shouldn't be that high on a list of developmental concerns.

Fun fact: Your grandsons are probably cursing when they're not around you. Yes, little six-year-olds curse. Just because you can't handle it doesn't mean other people and/or kids can't or that they'll be damaged goods for the rest of their lives because they heard some "bad words." Can't expect amped up, (some) drunk athletes to be 100% PC after putting their literal blood, sweat, and tears into winning a championship.

That's a myth about hockey players being so much more classy.

Needless to say, I totally agree with all of your comments about this. No class or dignity. Just a bu ch of drunken morons. Keeep Crawford in the bar but not in front of 2 mil ppl.

lmao at people getting offended at a couple of F bombs like this is the 1800s or something. The guy just won the ****ing STANLEY CUP. Something he's worked his ass off for for his whole life.

If you've been paying attention at all you'll know that guys have been swearing in postgame interviews all playoffs long. It's not these guys' jobs to be role models, their jobs are to win hockey games. That being said, I think overall they do do a great job of being role models, and swearing doesn't change that. Maybe he's not religious? Maybe swearing doesn't mean anything to him because he doesn't believe in god. Instead of condemning him for it, maybe you should be open about it and realize that your grandkids live in real life, not a bubble. People swear, and people are going to swear at events like this. Didn't you see their parade in 2010?
