Afternoon Line- Pierre McGuire On Sidney Crosby

“He’s got to start dominating the puck. The strength of Sidney Crosby has always been his ability to dominate the puck, and when he dominates the puck, he forces defensemen off the line, he creates time and space for not only himself, but for players that play on his line.”

“Sid’s not dominating the puck like I’m used to seeing him dominate. I go back to watching him when he was 14, 15 years old, so I have a pretty good sample size on the guy. When he dominates the puck, he is as elite a player as there is anywhere in the world. The problem is he’s not dominating the puck right now.”

-Pierre McGuire on Sidney Crosby.  More from McGuire at CBSPittsburgh.

Can somebody explain to me what “dominating the puck” means?

In this case I would think it would mean controlling the puck and carrying it more. He is deferring to teammates a bit more than usual.

I think it means making the puck call you “Daddy”.

Like I said before, it’s probably that time of month for Cindy. LOL

Pierre needs to not use the word “dominate” and its variants so much.  I’m quite creeped.
