Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero doesn’t think it was fair Sidney Crosby received criticism after declining an opportunity to appear on the “Late Show with David Letterman.”...
Shero noted the Penguins star has had a packed schedule since scoring the winning goal at the Olympics and that the team was entering a stretch where it will play four games in six days.
“At some point there’s a responsibility, that he takes very seriously, about being a hockey player and preparing,” Shero said Tuesday at the NHL’s GM meetings. “To me, any criticism for Sidney isn’t warranted. He does so much for the game, so much for the league. ...
“He’s trying to do it all and it’s unfortunate he can’t do it all. But he does a lot.”

Maybe Sidney Crosby is a fan of Jay’s or maybe he was upset at not being invited to Dave’s Super Bowl bash with Oprah, but folks around the NHL sure would be interested in learning even one of No. 87’s reasons for rejecting David Letterman’s invitation to host his Top Ten while the Golden Boy was in New York this week.
Upon learning of the snub, Slap Shots was told that this wasn’t the first time Crosby, who last year declined to appear on NBC’s “Today” show following Pittsburgh’s Stanley Cup victory, had rejected a request from Letterman’s “Late Show.”
