*Article From Pittsburgh-Post Gazette*

Ottawa winger Daniel Alfredsson had glowing things to say recently when asked about Washington's Alex Ovechkin, but he wasn't so complimentary toward the other top NHL rookie, the Penguins' Sidney Crosby.

In a story Sunday in The Ottawa Sun, Alfredsson named Ovechkin the best NHL player this season, and not just among rookies. He praised Ovechkin's creativity and ability to beat opponents one-on-one.

Alfredsson said Ovechkin separates himself from players such as Crosby and Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk with his willingness to be physical.

"He doesn't get frustrated if he gets hit ... he gets up and keeps playing," Alfredsson said of Ovechkin. "Not like that other rookie [Crosby], who starts crying. I think there's a big difference in the attitude."

Crosby said he was aware of Alfredsson's comments but declined to address them.

I am SO sick of these NHLers, these broadcasters, these analysts and these other shits out there rippin' on Sid. Sure he's stepped on some toes and stuff, but these stupid craps just keep up with the insults. 'oh Crosbys overrated' "oh Crosbys just hype' 'Crosbys a baby, a whiner' 'oh Crosbys full of himself'. And then everyone goes around praising Ovechkin like he's God or something. I mean nothing at all against Ovie, he's one of my fav players...I'm just sick of all this shit. Granted some do say he's a good player and stuff and they really like his game, but constantly it's just insults and I'm sick of it.

Sorry if I sound like a whiner and a bitch , but I just needed to vent for a second , lol

i have to agree with you on that. and i don't think that anything that Sid's done has been worthy of the absolute bashing that he's had to deal with. maybe i'm just biased being a pens fan, but really...

They're just jealous that they don't have the drive and finesse of Crosby. ;)

I read that before. Fuck Alfresson. He's the one crying to the media about it. Why the fuck is he talking? The article was bullshit.

Geebus, the guy’s a dickhead! It’s sad how everyone agrees with him. If Sid had said something rude about another player everyone would be ripping his head off.

Article
This article made me feel better though. Give the kid some credit, he knows what to say.

I can’t wait till the Pens play the Sens (Haha that rhymes)! I hope Sid gets a hat trick so he can rube it in Krusty’s face! Wishful thinking…
