Pierre LeBrun of ESPN answers some of the rants from NHL fans,
I am so SICK of people hating on Crosby. They say he isn’t tough. News flash: Concussions have nothing to do with toughness or skill. Also, most of the people questioning Sid’s toughness are ones that have never put on a pair of skates. They say he’s a crybaby and he gets too much attention. He himself said that he was sick of cameras coming to his stall every day after practice. He’s the best player in the world, so he will get some attention whether he, or other people like it.
My take (LeBrun): Well said. I’m pretty tired myself of all the Crosby haters. If they got to know the kid like some of us have had the chance over the past several years, they’d have a different impression of him. I can guarantee it. It’s why he’s won the admiration of the likes of Wayne Gretzky and Bobby Orr et al because of his all-world skill but also just as important because of his work ethic and the way he respects the game. Enough said.
