    I wonder if their fans have better aim than their team.

    You didn’t see him making all those passes on the power play?

    I get what your saying but unless u just watched highlights it’s hard to miss someone like him lol

    IMO, the 5 best players of all time are: Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr, Howe and finally Béliveau.
    But I think this year, Crosby will finally take the place of Big Bill.
    What an amazing player. He's so good it's almost unfair.

    Quiet? Uh okay, drew 2 penalties, had 4 points and shutdown the Flyers top line.

    Every player in the NHL other than Crosby and Malkin are under a ppg in the playoffs even with the 1st round included. Do you know how hard it is to be at a ppg in this era?

    171 points in 152 playoff games in this era is amazing. This isn't the 80's. Those numbers are ridiculous.

    And just think about the times he “struggled” think he went goalless in 2014 for like ten or eleven games and only
    Had a handful of assists in that stretch. He also was quiet I believe in the ecf vs Boston in 2013 but I could Be wrong. I just know the pens were swept.

    So if he would of just done well there he could have closer to 200 pts so yeah it’s crazy

    I’ve never liked the penguins they were always a top 5 team to hate cheer against.

    Still are.

    But for the last six or seven years I just have loved watching Crosby. I always cheer for him to do well (if the pens are gonna win anyway) it’s hard not to respect that kind of talent and I like seeing good players do well for the most part. Unless your a player on my top three most hated teams that is. Canucks leafs canadiens

    You are no doubt correct, but LOL at anyone from the Flyers organization admitting it was them

    I can't get myself to hope the Penguins lose because of Malkin and Crosby. Two of the best players to ever play the game, always a treat to watch them and they both play the right way.

    When's the next time you guys think we'll see a duo like them in the NHL? Likely never. All they do is win and you have to respect that and just how unique it is.

    it would be interesting to see how Crosby's PPG after round 2 stacks up against Ovechkin's.

    It’s not surprising that the founding fathers decided to move the capital to a literal swamp than keep it there.

    It happened in DC before.

    Right around the same time a group of Caps fans were passing out pacifiers to mock Crosby. Became being an adult sucking on a pacifier makes the other person look bad.

    It’s amazing to think the flyers fans gave Mario a standing ovation when he came back from cancer yet they treat Crosby the way they do. I personally think this generation of Flyers fan are losers because they’ve always been losers.

    Amazing. Crazy that Forsberg has more goals too. Both the best playoff players of the past 25 years without a single doubt.

    Its Hitchcock who started this stuff

    Granted his rookie year sid did do a ton of complaining but he had a legit gripe as he got his tooth knocked out by a hatcher high stick that wasn't called

    Soak it up like a Sidney picture in a urinal
    Crosby is doing things this year that we're gonna look back on and marvel at.
