There's a lot of talk about how Crosby dissed Lidstrom and some of the other Wings when they went to shake his hand after the Pens won the cup.
I am not a big fan of Crosby. He's posted some good numbers, but he'll never be a Gretzky or Lemieux. Perhaps the media is to blame by hyping him so much. Also, I don't think it's good for the game for such a young kid to have the publicity that he has, and then to also win a Cup to perhaps make people buy into the hype. His classless showing of disrespect towards the Wings after winning just solidifies that in my mind. You don't diss a guy like Lidstrom. I hope they meet again in the finals next year for the rubber match, and I hope the Wings blow them out. I hope this will be the last time Crosby ever hoists the Cup over his head.
