Logan Couture Said Sidney Crosby Cheats On Face-Offs Immediately After Sidney Crosby's Game Winning Face-Off
I can't believe it. All these years I have been sitting around wondering what exactly it is that makes Sidney Crosby so great at taking draws, and it turns out he's been jeopardizing the integrity of the game with his timing this whole time? Fuck kicking him out of the face-off circle, we should kick him out of the country. Talk about heading down a dangerous path. We let him get away with using his instincts and the next thing you know he'll be calling upon his cat-like reactionary ability and superior hand-eye coordination. I have to imagine this is the first step to full blown anarchy between the hashmarks. Has he no shame out there on the ice? He's basically hockey's equivalent of a card counter, but there's not a referee in the league that has the balls to bounce him off the table when his "luck" is so obviously a product of his deceitful skills. If the NHL had any self respect they would take him into the backroom and give him a not-so-friendly reminder that he can't be out there using his inherent physical abilities to succeed in an area of the sport that is supposed to a much bigger tossup than he is making it. It's absolutely despicable that he is taking advantage of his always pristine reputation with the officials to charm his way into cheating without repercussions. It took a night that he won 70% of his face-offs and set up the game winning goal overtime goal by cleanly winning a draw, but Logan Couture finally said what we never even considered to be true - Sidney Crosby's artful aptitude when the puck is being dropped is as disingenuous as can be.
Some may say this is nothing more than Logan Couture's hurt butt talking, but let me ask you this - If Crosby didn't know beforehand that he was going to win the face-off, would he have drawn up an entire play predicated on him winning the face-off? Didn't think so. And people want to call this guy a leader? HA!
