Oh trust me, I danced quite the little jig when Crosby was eliminated. I dislike the Pens for similar reasons as the Canucks - they're overrated, their goaltending is VASTLY overrated, and they constantly whine to the refs (well, Crosby anyway). Plus their "stars" enjoy taking cheap shots that they get away with because of their status (hello, Malkin). Hell, Pittsburgh arguably has more dirty players overall, what with the likes of Letang and Cooke skating every night.
But this country has an inexplicable massive hard-on towards Crosby, so it's really hard to criticize them without being yelled at. So I mostly keep to myself on this one, unless I'm talking to a Philly fan. They're seemingly the only people who can be objective about the Pens.
