Sidney Crosby Won’t Apologize for Breaking Claude Giroux’s Wrist

One thing I miss about hockey is the sound Sidney Crosby’s whines. There’s something about a baby crying that, while annoying, makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s cute, cuddly… and let’s you know that your hockey team probably just dominated his.

Crosby spoke to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about a myriad things. If you feel like reading the equivalent of a rectal examine, then I’d highly suggest you check this out. If not, don’t fret, because I did the dirty work for you.

Sid was asked about Claude Giroux’s punishing blow in Game 6 of their first round series and about Giroux’s claim that Crosby broke his wrist on faceoffs during the series:

The primary highlight from last season’s playoff series between the Penguins and Flyers was Claude Giroux’s hit against you in Game 6. How much have you thought about that series and that hit this past summer?

"It was a clean hit. I don’t think I would have really changed anything. Do you like putting yourself in that position? No. The odds of a guy making a hit like that at home and then having the puck end up on his stick two seconds later and scoring a goal…. That probably is the whole series in a nutshell. The series could have been over, we could have not had to play that game if we would have won the first two (games). It might not have even gotten to that point. We learned a pretty good lesson there hopefully. We didn’t execute. We lost leads. We did everything possible to lose. We let in a lot of goals. Weren’t good defensively. The only thing that really came out of that was our power play was pretty good. But that’s not usually what wins you games. We got a pretty good lesson and we’ve got to learn from it.” 

During the offseason, Giroux claimed you broke his wrists while taking faceoffs. Do you recall any plays where that might have happened?

”No. I really like to win the faceoff. I don’t try to go after his wrists but if I caught it, I’m not sorry for it. I think it’s hilarious I hear that stuff from Philly. It’s comedy to me to be honest with you. They’re probably involved in that stuff more than any team in the league and they’re the ones always talking about it. I guess I’m not apologetic. I was trying to win a faceoff and if I caught his wrist, then I caught his wrist. He seemed to play okay so I couldn’t have hurt him that bad.”


God I miss hockey.

  1. If this was the reverse situation wouldn’t we be mad if Giroux apolgized for breaking Crosbys wrist?

  2. Although I hate that Crosby pretty much said it’s something the Flyers seem to be more involved with. Pussy.

  3. There’s a large difference between “apologizing” and “reacting like an 11-year old after a playground shoving match”.
    He doesn’t need to apologize but something simple like “I never would try to hurt anyone intentionally, but it’s a rough sport and if things happen out there, so be it”, no one bats an eye.

  4. Crosby is the best player and the face of the NHL, Claude was to busy thinking of german slits and worrying about danny’s over weight son to be ready for the face off.


  6. G doesn’t have the heart to be an elite player. I saw him in old city back in sept & he looked like an overweight slob

  7. Pat must be talking about the devils game where G was lazy and gave that head shot that gave the series away.

  8. @ pat thats why him and briere are owning germany must be really fat slobs over there…i hope sestito brett lindross his ass!

  9. lazy or did two fucked up wrist have to do with girouxs play? that series was over after game 2

  10. See this is the shit im talking about. The fact that there is no nhl games right now just makes no sence. Flyers/pens. La kings champs, etc. play the fuckin games NOW. Fehr and bettman should both be booed beyond belief. The hell with fehr and bettman. Both are an embarassment

  11. Shrimp scampi for dindin. How bout another real good meatball parm sammy. Couple of garlic knots. hungry for hockey

  12. Haha Jim Jackson’s mistress nailed it. Coatsie is probably stumbling around South Philly right now.

  13. For those saying “well, if the this was the other way around…”, please stop. The point: Giroux doesn’t play a dirty game. The two players who have proven themselves to the entire league to play a whiny, cheap-shot game have been Malkin & Crosby. This isn’t just from the Flyers, other players/coaches from several teams make the same claims. But, we watched it before our eyes last Spring & the example Crosby & Malkin set was clearly followed (Letang, Neal, etc.), to the same extent with Bylsma. I’ve been watching for 30 years now & can say that I’ve never seen a team play so dirty as the Penguins did last year.

  14. Crosby must LOVE painting targets on himself. I don’t give a shit if it’s one of the Flyers or any other organization, someone is gonna take a run at Crosby sooner or later and end his career if he keeps this shit talking up

  15. typical flyer fag fans to cry about pussy boy giroux getting his wrist broken. if crosby is such a bitch then why did he beat giroux’s ass? face it philly fags pitssburgh owns you in everything. get over it and go through batteries at santa again you dirty, poor, ass holes.
    with love form a superior town PITTSBURGH
