Don't be retarded. That superstition is fairly new and at some point you have to be your own person. Not to mention... they didn't touch it last year... and they lost. They DID touch it this year and became only the second team to win a Stanley Cup Game 7 on the road.

This is just nitpicking to try and build on the argument of "Crosby is an immature suck and shouldn't be the face of the NHL".
Tim Kring is an immature suck and Heroes ****ing blows.
Crosby will become more mature with time and age. How ****ing boring would it be if he showed up and was perfectly polished and completely perfect??? It would be dull as ****. He's already dull as ****. I encourage him to be less boring. I want him to ****ing spit in Hossas face the next time he sees him. I want him to wear an undershirt that says "Go back to Russia, Alex" the next time they play the Caps and if he scores a goal... rip off his jersey, skate to center ice and do a dance.
It's a ****ing game kids.
Did I mention that HEROES sucks?

When you wear the 'C' you represent your team, your city, your organization...so you damned well better do all the right things, especially on national television in a game 7 of the Finals. I'm done with this argument. Crosby should have been the first MAN in line to shake hands...argue about all the other crap as much as you like.

Well... I thought it was fairly obvious that I was being facetious in describing the behavior I want from Crosby. But I feel my point still stands.
Touching the conference trophy has nothing to do with "class" or "respecting tradition". It was a very recent tradition... and traditions like rules... exist only to be broken, mended or updated.
For my money.... questions of "class" come up when someone intends to do something. From everything that Crosby has said... it didn't sound like he was trying to slight anybody... so he apologized. Nuff said. IF he continues to do it... then I say slam away... but so far all anybody can point to is some questionable plays in the "heat of the moment" and now this complete non-issue.
As for my off topic HEROES bashing... what would I be without my TRADITIONS?!

this is correct. they asked him about it after pittsburgh accepted the conference trophy. his response was precisely that last year they didn't touch it and they lost in the finals so this year they wanted to see what would happen if they DID touch it.
