    That linesman knows the Austin Powers judo chop. Crosby is a beast for not being knocked out like everyone in the movies.

Great player... but he is among the worst divers/embellishers in the league and it is pathetic. A player as great as Crosby shouldn't need to dive and flop like a girl.

    You're right it was a joke. The linesman chop would not have been nearly as painful as this atrocious incident:

    I don't know if this is the best example of 'a dive'. His over-reaction looked more surprised to me then trying to draw a penalty. To me a dive should have either an element of falling on purpose or faking an injury.

    However, please don't take this comment as a vote to join either of the "Crosby can do no wrong" or "Crosby is the devil" cults.

    I agree that Crosby has taken dives in the past, but this is a poor example of a dive as reeveta stated. There was no delayed reaction, it was a reaction of total surprise....there's no way he could have seen that coming, and there was definite contact to his face. I'm neither pro or anti-Crosby, only a fantasy owner.......I just disagree that this was a dive on his part. They panned to him on the bench after the shift, and he still looked a bit shaken up and was flexing his jaw. As an owner, I was actually worried that he might have gotten his bell rung.

    I don't see anything that I wouldn't do if I got hit by a hand and whistle while skating and not expecting it. It's a natural reaction! The Anti Crosby fan club needs to realize that you could find crap like this about pretty much every player out there. Pretty weak argument for a dive imo.

    And you don't need to denigrate women by saying something is "like a girl." Come on, man. You're an adult, have some respect. With that comment, you're instantly worse than anything you accuse Crosby of being. Just sayin ...

    I really like you, Fungchen. You're one of the more likeable fellows around these parts. But you're in the wrong here.

    Weak argument + backhanded dig against women = not a great post.

    Relax. It's pretty common vocabulary in sports.
