Crosby and the handshake line

You will NOT rain on my (championship) parade, Draper.

I will not spend much time at all on this nonsense, I’m in too good of a mood.  Sidney Crosby got to the handshake line late last night (along with several other Penguins and staff, by the way).  By the time Crosby got in line, Wings’ captain Nik Lidstrom and Kris Draper, who were in front of the line, had hastily skated off the ice.

Crosby did indeed shake some Wings’ hands, such as Henrik Zetterberg and coach Mike Babcock, among others.  Watch for yourself.

The Penguins themselves said it best, “Members of losing teams generally vacate the ice pretty quickly”.

All this talk of Crosby “snubbing” the Wings is absurd.  I could talk about a lot of things that happened in that arena after that game by those “fans”, but that’s different, of course, right ??
