    When you're on the team with The Best Player In The World, you should never expect to win any individual awards, no matter how good you are. You're not The Best Player In The World, so you get nothing.

    • Happens in pretty much every sport. Tom Brady and LeBron get the same treatment.

        • I don't usually watch PTI, but had it on today. They talked about how bad the Preds no goal was, and talked up conspiracy theories. Those guys are not necessarily bastions of honor, but good to hear some national press bring it up.

          • there's good article over at hockeybuzz by Paul Stewart, the former ref. He's somewhat able to show that the refs "do the best they can" and it's the league's priorities and interpretations that ultimately make them scapegoats for obvious blunders like this. I don't think the refs should get as free of a pass as he thinks; but it does go to show just how much influence the NHL/NHLPA have on how officials run the rink.

            The link is the current article, and his past ones are linked at the end; and he's had a few now that addressed Crosby slamming Subban's head, and the ridiculousness of the coaches challenge for hairline offsides calls.

            • Every cup they won/win with Crosby, Malkin, Fleury is tainted with stink of collusion with the league and seems hollow. Sure they won but not because the organization earned it, they were handed it. They were given rediculous assets to form the backbone of a team that they NEVER should have had.

                So why couldn't the officials get together to make the right call on Sunday?

                    Not sure I understand this. In 03 they traded up to the top spot and took Fleury. In 04 they lost the lottery when Washington moved up and got the top pick so they got Malkin at 2. Then 05 was the lockout so they got 3 ping pong balls and won the lottery and took Crosby.

                    • I was under the assumption that the Crosby lottery was fixed behind closed doors and it magically happened that Pitts got the lottery pick.
