Crosby fights McLean

I'm not usually a fan of Sid the Kid. But when he tunes on a guy like he did tonight to Florida's Brett McLean I can appreciate that. This where a goon would come in handy, and the instigator rule abolished. Sid is obviously sick of getting jabbed, slew-footed, etc.
Oh and the Penguins lost 6-1.

This is not the first time Crosby has fought. He took on Andrew Ference in his first NHL tilt on December 20, 2007.

don't give labarbera too much love. he coughed up way too many juicy rebounds that game, that first goal was dan cloutier soft and he looked stupid in the shootout.

yeah, he doofed the first goal, but how many times has Luongo done that? Many. In fact Luongo was famous for allowing the first shot in last year especially. I thought Barbs rebounded well after that goal.
As for the rebounds, I don't know what to think. A lot of times he didn't let out rebounds.
The shootout is the shootout. There's some pretty skilled dekers out there. I wouldn't say Luongo is all that much better in the shootout either.
Just give Labarbera some time with Ian Clarke and I think he'll be better.

Why on earth does Crosby have to do that? With the Pens out of the playoffs and Crosby having to fend for himself...what sort of statement does that make for his captaincy?

Who is the Pens tough guy? Don Cherry made the point about "Where's Laracque? Where's Gary Roberts? Where Colby Armstrong?"

Just who is the enforcer on the Pens now?

Matt Cooke..haha

Actually it's Eric Godard. However, Brett McLean is about 5'11" and 185 pounds. So then it's fine if Crosby fights him. That would almost make Crosby a bully, right? haha

Oh hey, Bitterguy...

Did you watch the Nucks-Stars game last night? Was Barbie gold or what?
