    Crosby’s Accusation Against Chara Another Low Point For The Face Of The NHL

    "Well, Crosby’s not even doing the complaining himself, leaving his agent, Pat Brisson, to be his mouthpiece. As Damien Cox of the Toronto Star passed along on Friday, “Sidney Crosby’s agent is convinced Zdeno Chara of the Bruins intentionally punched Crosby where he had broken his jaw in Game 1. Nasty.”

    "But in super slow-motion, and with some sort of mega zoom, Crosby and his agent were convinced that Chara had purposefully taken the time to carefully target Crosby’s exposed jaw with a direct jab in the middle of a scrum. And so they gathered the video and sent it along to TSN, which was happy to “report” on the wretched assault on hockey’s golden boy. (TSN’s Darren Dreger actually took Chara aside to show him the video. Chara is in the middle of playing for the Stanley Cup.)"

    While the Zapruder-esque slow-motion footage provided by TSN looks damning for Chara, the video at regular speed (uploaded to YouTube by user @dafoomie) of the “incident” shows it for it is: nothing."

    Way to go Dafoomie!

    Crosby did sort of refer to the play in question after the game.

    “They’re letting a lot go out there, and the more it gets like that, the more it’s going to escalate,” Crosby said of the referees, who penalized him for interference as well as slashing in Game 1. “You can only control and channel that stuff so much. You keep letting guys do that stuff, you’re just going to push the envelope. That’s something we obviously want to stay away from, but it’s kind of a natural thing when it gets like that.”

    Crosby hiding behind his agent now. What a Doosh!

    Just unbelievable.  

    Someone put together tape of all of Crosby's cheap shots from Game 1 and send it to TSN.

    This is pathetic, even for him.

    Crybaby.

    If you don't want to get hit stay out of the scrum.

    I wonder if when he was talking about the refs "letting a lot of stuff go", he was referring to the captain of one team skating over to elbow the goalie of the other team during a stoppage?

    So many things wrong with this.  Such as...

    1.  If he's still injured, he should have his protector on.

    2.  If he doesn't want to get punched in the face, he shouldn't grab a mean SOB from behind in a scrum.

    So Crosby, knowing he has a bad jaw, having removed his protective face shield, gets involved in a scrum on his own and is upset about a love tap?  If this was Montreal the police would be called. Move on Sidney, game, set and match!

    From what I understand Jonathans rifle was too long, giving him a lack of accuracy.

    Good Lord Almighty what's next....Iggy gonna complain because Marchand called him a bad name!? Can't stand the heat..get your behind outta the kitchen!" And considering Damion Cox's name is mentioned not too surprised, after his whiny as s tweeting about JJ's hook on Malkin in gm 3.

    Crosby 0-0-0, team 0-4....that's how he ended the season...that's how I'll remember him in 2013. Why is there even a thread devoted to this highly overated, overhyped, overNBCed marketed "superstar?"

    On a past HNIC Coach's Corner Don Cherry (I can't remember the exact time frame but it might have been shortly after he return from a concussion) showed video of him in the middle of scrums, some jousting and said something to the effect of if Crosby's going to play a rambunctious style and get in the mix as he does, he's going to get roughed up and hit sometimes.

    Bunch of damn cry babies. A shove or cuff to the face happens all the time in scrums.  Of course if  you slow it down it looks like his jaw was being targeted.  I am losing respect for Sid when it comes to this crap.

    Crosby is a disgrace. He should be playing Euro soccer where he can duck, cry and prance around like a ballerina. Can't stand the whining little sh*t.

    Exactly !!!!  Move on Crosby and learn to play with some pain or take yourself out of the game.
