Crosby acquits himself well in a fight with another non-fighter. I know there are a lot of Crosby haters out there who will whine he didn't fight a more formidable opponent. Give it a rest. ALL of these guys fight guys in their weight class OR in within their capabilies. that being said, Crosby more than held his own. Haters beef about his whining. Crosaby NEVER takes a run at people and is always targeted for cheapshots and has shown a willingness to WILL fight. Ovechkin runs EVERYBODY and gutlessly fights NOBODY.
Its great to see a super star captain drop the gloves. Its beyond me why people always talk crap about Crosby when Ovechkin has yet to drop them. Crosby is a classy player.No ego nor arrogance just skill and passion.
I'm gonna go with niskanen on this one, only because he landed the bombs and crosby landed more jabs and slaps. Once again, crosby fights a smaller guy with no fighting experiance (yah that apparently makes him super tough)... i'm willing to bet he never has the balls to square off with mike richards in his career (ovechkin did it ), and if he ever does i bet he prays to god again that the refs jump in and save his a SECOND time. That last part is just to keep pitsburgh/crosby fans in check, from saying they have the best ALL AROUND player in the world... not yet not even close. Although i will say hes a lot more watchable these days when he's not whining to the refs every shift.
This is not a fight.. If you fight with a visor on why fight??????????? Does Iginla fight with a visor on? NO!! This was a hug fest and how do you land a punch with a shield on??? Sidney Crosby=Wayne Gretzky Half of a hockey player.. All skill with ZERO toughness... Gordie Howe, Cam Neely, and the list goes on of real hockey players!!!!!! Sid go take up figure skating!!! I think Disney on ice is looking for some highly skilled skaters!!!
niskanen just got tossed by SYDNEY CROSBY. williplettrules if you ask niskanen im sure he will tell you otherwise. im not even gonna comment on all you loosers who were too whimpy to admit that crosby just won a fight and called it a draw.
Crosby won but he does the same thing every time. He grabs his opponent and just tries to jerk him down. I agree with the other guy, it would be nice if Crosby would actually stand and punch with someone even a ***** like Niskanen.
Crosby man handles Niskanen and makes him look like a fool, you sir who said this was a "cat fight" that is just stupid, Sid obviously controllled this whole fight throwing niskanen around like a rag doll and finishing him off. easy win for Sid
This was a draw. Watch the fight, again if you need to. Not one of either visor-wearer's punches landed. At the end, Crosby was trying to punch, but he was being held up by Niskanen.
The announcers have it spot on, "Crosby has done this before, and doesn't mind doing it." Yes, fighting a non-fighter whilst still wearing his f'ing visor!
I hate him and the Pens, so I am biased. But how can any of you Pen fans respect this little Hobbit?
