No Love for Crosby; Marc Methot Wants Crosby 10-Game Suspension

Published

Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby, Marc Methot

OK, there’s a bit of history here. Former Ottawa Senators defenseman Marc Methot says the NHL should suspend Sidney Crosby for 10 games because of his hit on Washington Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary in the Penguins 6-1 loss on Sunday night. 

In a tweet on Monday morning, Methot advocated the big suspension.

The hit occurred in full view of the officials and Crosby was unpenalized. However, the Washington Capitals took note. The Washington media and fanbase certainly noted, too.

Fehervary tried to laugh it off when asked about it postgame, “I don’t know, I don’t even know what I should talk about,” Fehervary said. “I don’t care. We’ll see next game.”

Methot may have a little grudge against Crosby. The defenseman, who last skated in the NHL in 2018-19 for the Dallas Stars, will forever have a reminder of his battle with the Penguins star.

In a March 23, 2017 game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators, Methot rushed the Penguins zone. Crosby slashed Methot as he skated into the zone.

The resulting injury wasn’t pretty. While not intended, Crosby mangled Methot’s finger. Trainers had to stitch the crushed tip back onto Methot’s pinky finger.

You may get why Methot isn’t a Crosby fan. Only watch if you want to see something you can’t unsee. This isn’t pretty.

Don’t forget the play from 2013 when Methot hip checked Crosby and sent him flying into Dupuis with Sid’s skate coming dangerously close to Dupuis’ face. So obviously no love lost between Crosby and Methot, but a call for a 10 day suspension is pretty ridiculous.

How come the cheap shot teams always cry the loudest?

So transparent lol.. just like when dubinsky went at sid in the media a while back and it was obviously personal. People call for a suspension on this because they they don’t like crosby, flat out. Just like when he pushed koneckny’s head into the ice people said suspend him. Neither one deserved a suspension but its convenient to say it does. Anyways.. It seems like there is 10x the amount of complaining about officiating in the last two years than there has ever been. I liked the intensity from sid, I liked the no call (as a hockey fan… Read more »

This is just noise. Granted, as Pens fans, we are not exactly objective. But, in my experience, many of the people who complain about things Sid does like this are the same people that say he whines too much or that he needs to just shut up and play hockey when guys like Marc Staal cross check him in the head repeatedly. So the narrative is either that Sid is a whiner and needs to shut up OR he needs to defend himself and play more physical. But when he does the latter, he’s dirty. Never understood why Sid is… Read more »

While I agree with your take for the most part I do think that it was at least a major penalty.

As far as Methot goes I personally HATE slashing around the hands. If someone has ever done it to me I’ve gone back at them. So, not a fan of Sid’s slashing. But, that aldo means that Methot is totally biased.

Side note – why is our leading scorer playing on the forth line now…

I think they’re all more a cross between a third and second line lol. But, with Sid back we’ll most likely have a top line and a second line…hopefully.

2 minutes for throwing? Honestly i think it could have been a roughing penalty. If i were a referee, i would have been in awe and confused as to what just happened. Lucky there wasn’t an injury there

I could even see a 5 minute roughing major…but nothing more. The boards are extremely dangerous when going into them “certain” ways. But, this wasn’t one of them. A shove from behind, a crosscheck up high…those are 10x worse

Dude tries to take out Sid’s skates and he says “Not today!”, looks good to me.

Try again.

[…] While the Pittsburgh Penguins were being dominated by the Washington Capitals, Sidney Crosby showed major frustrations as he threw Washington Capitals defenseman Martin Fehervary into the boards. Former NHLer Marc Methot is calling for a ten game suspension for Crosby’s actions. But there’s a backstory to why Methot is not a fan of the superstar. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now) […]

Man, if tears were playoff wins Marc might have won something in his career! He can prob get a job whining with Milbury now that he has all that free time.

That said be careful tweeting you might hurt your finger and need 10 more stitches

I love the people who call Crosby “Sid” like you guys just had a morning skate together or something. Funny.

Just noise. If the Caps weren’t already okay with cheap shots and uncalled penalties, they wouldn’t employ Tom Wilson.
