      Off somewhere complaining about his wrists, I’d imagine…

      • billsfan13594 - Oct 18, 2012 at 1:04 PM

        Yeah, because answering a question about his wrists once is completely on par with Crosby’s history of complaining,

        keep rocking the pedostache, kid

    I’m pretty sure that stache was for his insane point streak. But hey, you don’t always have to look good to be the best right?

        Ovie’s hat trick sure helped the Caps win the Stanley Cup that year. Oh wait….

    Slouching? At the conference room table? No wonder the owners don’t respect these guys.

    All 18 players attending are Canadian… Good to see the yanks and euros care enough to show

      lol You noticed that too, eh?

    • jimw81 - Oct 18, 2012 at 3:06 PM

      isn’t fehr and all the owners american?

  5. innout10 - Oct 18, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    Hah…. I’m really not surprised … Overwhelming majority of captains and coaches (leadership roles) are Canadian.

    Does anyone really believe that Sidney Crosby, who has been doing nothing but playing hockey his entire life, entered the league as a teenager, and has zero post-high school educational training or known education through real-world experience, can understand much of anything when he’s sitting in a room listening to lawyers talk?
