    And it's their own undoing really. Their long serving GM has destroyed that team with horrendous contracts, terrible drafting, and spotty free agency signings then he's also hired a terrible coach since Babs bounced and Babs has his own issues in Toronto.

    That fan base is mad at us for something that happened a decade ago after they already won a cup vs us, they need to Elsa that ****.

    Before Ovechkin won the Cup: "Why bring up Cups? It's a team sport, Cups have ZERO to do with a player's value"

    After Ovechkin won the Cup: "Now that he's won the Cup, this proves he's better than Crosby"

    Lol, yeah exactly. HF and the Media have suddenly done this weird 180 on Crosby, it's now this narrative to push literally anyone but him regardless of what he and Malkin do.

    **** it guys.

    Just watch this **** and enjoy the media comments then, too:



    Since when do we give a **** what the other fans in the league or media have to say?

    We know who we are. I dont ****ing care what a Bruin fan or Capital fan or what some talking head in Toronto has to say.

    You have to understand, the media and many fans love “flashy” players. They love guys with an “edge”, guys that produce headline grabbing quotes, guys that are “interesting” off the ice or field or court...

    They hate “vanilla” players who give robotic answers at interviews and never cause a stir off the ice.

    This is why the media really aren’t high on Crosby but love guys like Ovechkin, Subban, and such.

    They just couldn’t wait for OV to win a Cup so they could crown him the best player of his generation and maybe of all time. And now you see the ridiculous threads about him being the best, Oshie in the HOF, Holtby is better than Hasek, Wilson appreciation, etc.

    Now that the Caps have defeated milquetoast Crosby and the boys, and a flashy and exciting captain had won it all, they will be on his jock from here on out.

    I wouldn’t say the media isn’t high on Crosby, they all pretty well acknowledge him as an all-time great. Especially Canadian media.

    I think a mod should just close this thread and get a fresh one about after the playoffs and the next season, draft, etc.

    Let's wash ourselves of the negative ****.

    I wonder if we will be the banner raising game like they were for us in 2016?

    It's usually the 1st home game, so unless we're their 1st home game next season, probably not. Although if they want to go down that path, cool, it'd be petty as hell but I mean by all means, fuel the team to wreck you in the playoffs later that year if they meet again.

    Wouldn't OV have to win 4 cups to be better than Crosby?
    I still never see any highlight videos of OV even closely comparing to the skill level of Crosby. That is a fact. If OV was the more prolific player I would say it, what the hell do I care.

    Good. Amazing even. But not the same level.
