Sidney Crosby Throws A Temper Tantrum

Ryan McFaddenCorrespondent INovember 4, 2016

Sidney Crosby let his superstar hormones get the best of him tonight. Instead of worrying about putting the puck in the net to try and lead his team out of their slump like a good captain should, he threw a temper tantrum and jumped Brett Mclean. Very effective Sidney, well done.

Let's first all take a step back and realize that no matter what, this "fight" is going to be viewed as Sid the Kid doing everything he can to be the hero and lead his team to victory. To quote a bad movie "bullshit bullshit bullshit."

All Crosby did was once again show his true colors. He didn't man up and throw down with Brett Mclean, he jumped him right off a face off like the classless player the so called "face of the NHL" truly is. But no, you won't hear that. Nobody in the media is going to say how it really is. There's a different set of rules for Sidney Crosby.

After the game Crosby said “I asked him to go, and he said yes. And usually, yes means yes. I mean, I wouldn’t have wasted 20 minutes in the box for that. I guess he didn’t take me serious. I don’t know, it wasn’t worth 20 minutes, though, that’s for sure.” It sure wasn't worth 20 minutes Sidney. Especially since there was still a period of hockey to play and your team was down a few goals.

Don't you think your more valuable to the team playing than sitting in the locker room? I'm not sure what his logic there was. Regardless, yes Sidney I don't think he took you seriously. I mean who would take a whiny player like you in a fight seriously? Don't you normally let somebody else fight your battles for you anyways? Like how Maxim Talbot did earlier in the first period?

Although he did get ejected from the game, if his name were Sean Avery you better believe that Gary Bettman would be handing out a suspension for his actions. There's no need to even wait and see how things will play out with the NHL. Everyone knows how things will go.
