We hate Cindy Crosby already. Refusing to ever acknowledge the talent, skill, and experience of the Red Wings after we beat him was a slap in the face. The fact his diving, slashing, cheap-shotting, cherry-picking self was able to win the Cup on our ice was revolting. Turning the other cheek to Nicklas Lidstrom was a sign of his childish immaturity. Winning the gold medal against the United States, on his shot, is unbearable.

But now, he's fully cemented his status as Public Enemy #1 (Claude's retired now). After once again being kept in check by Zetterberg all game long and left with a -2 for his efforts, Crosby took his gnat-like slashing to a new level as the game ended. The reason I say his villain status is confirmed? Because Cindy was cheapshotting so badly, even a rookie goalie was not going to put up with that nonsense. At the very end of tonight's game, Crosby just begins back-of-the-head cross-check after cross-check, even throwing a punch, at Zetterberg. Jimmy Howard stepped in to stop it.

In a locker room interview right after the game, a reporter asked Crosby about what went on. He responded, "I think he [Howard] was just looking for a free shot." Really?! Do goalies routinely make a habit out of looking to board someone when a game is over? Sorry Cindy, he was there protecting his player.

Cindy Crosby, welcome to villainy. Jimmy Howard, welcome to Hockeytown.

EDIT: I had a Red Wing tag on the thread, which somehow disappeared.

I told you, you missed the new meme: it's Rosby now.

I think SHAKES '09 speaks more to the Wings' sense of entitlement, but I mean, I'm over here.

I think this is great. What fun are these seasons without a villian? Howard face-washing Cindy was great, too, and Cindy getting her panties in a bunch about it after the game was hilarious. I'm guessing Mario was probably not pleased, however, and sent Cindy right to bed without her being able to watching Dora the Explorer.

Please let there be another Wings-Pens finals. Please.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL This guy rules. No hard feelings, bro. And at a 5.2 cap hit via the Detroit backend loophole, it doesn't preclude them from re-signing Toews, Kane, and Seabrook. On Havlat vs.
