Or, in simpler terms: Sidney Crosby is a dirty player, and a prick to boot. According to this article from Matt Brigidi at TheCheckingLine.com (original article from Timmins Press here), Claude Giroux says that his wrist injuries he suffered in the playoffs (he had surgery on both after the season, with one of them fractured) came as a result of Sidney Crosby hacking at his wrists every time the two lined up for a faceoff against each other in their postseason series this year. I’m sure it wasn’t every time, but Giroux’s got the proof in the form of the surgery scars on both of his wrists. It shouldn’t surprise anyone, as Sidney Crosby spent that whole series whining, diving, taking cheap shots, and just acting like a petulant child in general (remember him pushing Jake Voracek’s glove away from him, inciting a brawl?). It’s all just part of the double standard Crosby tries to get: on one hand, he whines and dives in an effort to get calls. On the other hand, he takes cheap shots and plays dirty. You can’t have it both ways, Sid. That is, unless you’re the NHL’s golden boy and the refs treat you as such.
