Congrats Pens...But Crosby Why do you have the "C"?

Rate this Entry
Like the title says "Congrats Pens...but..."

A Fans response to the criticism of Crosby's late handshake spawned by Drapers comment.


...But it was 30 seconds. People are saying he has no class over 30 seconds? 20 seconds after Draper pulled out of the line Crosby got there. And that can be seen on the video.

...But Draper(A) led the way to the locker room after waiting only 10 seconds. Crosby got there about 20 seconds later and shook hands with Franzen and Zetterberg.

...But did anyone notice the Con Smythe was announced as Malkin was still in the line?

...But Mike Babcock clearly said to Sidney Crosby "...great leadership by you".

...But the Pens battled back from 10th place in February to 4th place for the playoffs on the final day of the regular season taking the position lost by the Flyers.

...But the Pens beat a healthy Flyers team in 6 on the road. The turning point in that series could be Talbots fight with Carcillo.

...But the Pens beat the "O-Show" on the road in 7. The Crosby and Ovechkin hat tricks in one night where fantastic! I wonder if Mr. Semin is still wondering what's so special now that he's had a few weeks off to think about it.

...But the Pens beat Carolina on the road to end a 4 game sweep and punch their ticket for the final. Carolina was on a roll and had pulled 2 upsets to get to the conference finals.

...But the Pens fought to get back to the finals against the team that beat them convincingly the year before in the cup finals. The Ominous and Powerful Detroit Red Wings.

...But the Pens came from a 0-2 game deficit to tie the series 2-2.

...But the Pens recovered from a horrible undisciplined game 5 to win game 6 and force the game 7.

...But the Pens took it from Detroit on their ice in their house.

...But we'll have the Stanley Cup Victory Parade downtown Monday.

...But we'll have all summer with the Stanley Cup.

...But Sidney Crosby will always be despised by someone. Lemieux and Gretzky where not always loved by all either. A good leader does not let the critics direct his next move. A good leader will continue to prepare for whatever is next. Crosby is growing into a good leader.

...But thanks for nothing to everyone bashing Crosby and blowing this ridiculous happenstance into Don Cherry like proportions of critical minutia and a dead end sideshow. There is no story here. Just bitterness and jealousy.

Thanks to everyone who gave unconditional congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Pens Fans.

...But to the haters and bashers - Kiss my ...but.
