Dubinsky sounds off on Crosby: ‘F— Sid’
Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin have actually been determined versus each other considering that they got in the NHL in 2005-06.
Both have their reasonable share of advocates, however for previous New york city Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky, there’s no dispute who the much better gamer is.
“Everybody wants to talk about Sid and Ovi whatever, dude, F*** Sid, like I’ll take Ovi everyday of the week,” Dubinsky stated on a current episode of The Garage Beers Podcast. “I got an Ovi stick, listen, I asked Ovi for an autographed stick, I got it from him, thanked him for it, I would never ask Sid for a stick, ever.”
The veteran forward doubled down on his remarks in a tweet on Friday, declaring that Crosby “whined way too much.”
None of this ought to come as any surprise, as Crosby and Dubinsky have a prolonged competition that has actually included a suspension-worthy cross check, a perky battle and lots of pointed words.
The Ovechkin vs. Crosby dispute will likely continue long after both gamers’ NHL professions concern an end.
In 1,320 video games (consisting of playoffs), Ovechkin has actually taped 794 objectives, 1,440 points, 3 Hart Trophies, 9 Rocket Richard prizes, one Art Ross Prize, one Conn Smythe Prize and one Stanley Cup. In 1,188 video games, Crosby has actually generated 544 objectives, 1,492 points, 2 Hart Trophies, 2 Rocket Richard prizes, 2 Art Ross prizes, 2 Conn Smythe Trophies and 3 Stanley Cups.
Dubinsky hasn’t dressed in an NHL video game considering that the 2019 playoffs due to a persistent wrist injury and was put on the long-term injury reserve in January. Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen stated last summer season it’s not likely the 34-year-old will ever have the ability to play once again, however it does not appear Dubinsky wants to bury the hatchet with Crosby anytime quickly.
