Sorry but I grew up around him, and knew him for mostly every year before he went off to the academy to play hockey and prep for the NHL. The guy is an arrogant little shit just like his father is. Despite what you might believe through the media and his media training, it wouldn't surprise me for a second if the guy just didn't feel like playing.

Hes never been able to take a hit, hes never been able to play through anything (not saying a concussion specifically is something you'd want to) and hes never been one to go out of his way to do something for other people.

So yes, I do think the guy is a little girl, and I do think he'd sit out if it were possible for him to play. Although I would contribute some of that to the Pens management wanting to baby him.

Also given that "hit" that he took to get the concussion, ya it was a bad hit, but I don't see it being bad enough to make him have so many problems for so long, but I wouldn't say much on that because I'll get hounded for not having a medical degree again.

Dude, I have never met you, but if I had to judge your Hockey knowledge off the statement above alone, I'd have to say you had no idea what you were talking about.

I didn't grow up around Crosby. I don't know him, and never will. I have friends that have been around him a lot, spoken to him, interviewed him, etc, they don't say anything one way or the other except he seems like a good guy.

He has been the focal target of every team he's played against since he came into the league and he's found ways to play through it and dominate. He plays hard, he goes into the corners. gets most of his goals in the blue ice, and he gets hit...a lot.

Maybe he slept with you girlfriend? sister? Mom? Hell, I dunno.... did he kick your dog???

He isn't even my favourite player but I can tell you this, he certainly ain't the guy you described above. maybe he was when he was 12.... but get over it kid.... he is a grown man now with a ring and a gold medal, both of which happened because of him.

oh and a ps. for a lot of you, I know "girls" that can play. I have played with a few National team gals. I wouldn't use them as a noun to describe a weak or frightened or lazy or under skilled Hockey Player.

My generation fought hard on the tails of our parents generation to give you kids an environment where you could treat women with respect, and as equals....

Smarten the fuck up.

Just saying....

I don't really care really what you think of what I say, the kid hid in his room during his celebration at his house when he won the Stanley cup. His father has always been a complete asshole, and Sid has always resembled him, I really don't care for what your basing your opinion on from some people you know that have spoken to him.

I also don't get why your bringing his talent level into this, I never said he was a bad hockey player, I'm saying he can't take a hit, hes always been a cry baby on the ice when something happened that he didn't like or agree with.

As for the gold medal, if the team around him didn't carry him there (he played like shit most of the Olympics) he never would of had the chance to score on a puck that bounced right to him.

The Leafs traded their first round pick in 2007 for Toskala...that pick ended up being Couture.

in no way am i defending the trade, but how does that equate to the Leafs 'trading away" Couture? How do we know he was even on the radar of toronto's scouts?

Oddly enough, I knew a person who grew up right beside Crosby, and never once did I hear the things you mentioned. Not once.

As for your last statement, every hit is different and how our bodies react. I can site numerous examples, but you'd likely just ignore them anyways.

But, from what I have seen, is the dude loves to play the game. So, why would he just sit back and do nothing?

All this screams to me is a guy who is either jealous of another man's success and feels if he was given the opportunity he'd do more, or a young guy who doesn't know any better, or a guy who's just talking out of his ass. I'll go with option 2.

Doesn't really matter to me what you believe, I have no reason to just say it out of nowhere.
