I remember reading about Sidney Crosby way back when he was “next” and one thing the writer of the article was so impressed with was the fact that Crosby practiced moves that made you think he’d mishandled the puck, but that’s just what he wanted you to think so you’d let your guard down. I very vividly recall it because I remember thinking, “What in the fuck does that even mean?”
Well he just got one upped by Marchand. Has Crosby ever tripped over the blue line totally on purpose only to make you step up and look like an idiot when he hits you with the most devastating toe drag in history? No? Didn’t think so. Marchand > Crosby.
