Giroux points the finger at Sidney Crosby for causing his wrist injuries

Speechless.

“Those are from (Sidney) Crosby,” he says half smiling, but with some tension in his voice. “Every time we’d line up against each other for a face-off during our (2012 playoff) series, instead of going for the puck when it was dropped, he’d hack me across the wrists. I ended up playing the series against (New) Jersey with one of them fractured and had to go for surgery on both of them after we were out of the playoffs.”

Sounds like he has soff wrists if he had to get surgery for stuff like that.

And here I thought I'd never hate another Flyer nearly as much as I did Jeff Carter or Derian Hatcher.

After all the names Flyer fans have thrown at Crosby over the years, both here and in the media, how does the name Claudia Girloux sound?

Seems to fit.

It amazes me that a fan base and team that complains about whining so much whines more than any other. I wonder if they get the irony?

This is where playing the game let's you see how dumb and ******** his quote is. I'm guessing he was making a joke, because any player would know how to change that from happening. There is a lot of cheap stuff that goes on during the faceoff, but come on now. It's not hard to block that from happening.

Or hey... after the first period as your team for wrist guards. That would be the end of it, too.

I love the way he plays, but that is just stupid. Probably more stupid than Semin saying he doesn't understand what is so special about Crosby.

The Flyers won their only 2 Stanley Cup playing that way, they loved Bobby Clarke, and he did much worse.

They can go you know where

Yeah, merely said that I was enjoying the irony there, and that is all that needs to be said on the subject.

Happens at every level. I remember playing in street hockey leagues growing up. We didn't wear a ton a pads and there was one kid that would purposely whack my leg right where there was no padding instead of trying to win the faceoff. Hurt like hell, pissed me off but I made some adjustments to block it from happening.

You are so right. There is not one hockey related locker room conversation, on my beer league team, that that doesn't involve some jab at Crosby (from one of my Flyer fan teamates) no matter how remote the possibility. It started out comical but now its just sad.

You have to love it though. Sid's gone from being a crybaby sissy in Philly to the playground bully. Cindy Crosby is hurting our best player boo hoo hoo.

Although I keep forgetting. On any other team this is whining, inPhilly its gamesmanship.
