Found April 09, 2012 on Goon's World:

The conversation in question starts at about 4:27 of the video.  Sidney Crosby is an awesome hockey, but Torts is right, Crosby and Malkin are two of the biggest whiners in the NHL. Frankly, I would like to see Don Cherry give the Sedin twins in Vancouver the same lectures as well.
ProSportsDaily Staff ---- Don Cherry joined a growing number of hockey personalities who are publicly taking issue with Sidney Crosby.

After New York Rangers coach John Tortorella labeled Crosby a whiner, Cherry spoke out against the Pittsburgh Penguins captain during his weekly "Coach's Corner" segment on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.

"A long time ago when Crosby was coming out, I tried to warn him (to) 'quit diving, quit whining.' (Then) I was the worst guy in the world ... and all I was trying to do was help him," Cherry said.

"All I said was stop whining, stop diving and snapping the head back."

With Sidney Crosby back from a concussion that wiped out huge chunks of this season and last, the Pittsburgh Penguins enter the NHL’s Stanley Cup playoffs as the 9-2 betting favorites at Bovada to hoist the Cup for the first time since 2009. Last year, the Pens entered the playoffs without both Crosby (concussion) and Evgeni Malkin (knee injury) and were eliminated in the first...

Crosby 'appreciates' playoff return

Sidney Crosby braced himself as New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi lowered his shoulder before checking Crosby into the corner boards early in the penultimate regular-season game on Thursday. Crosby lay on the ice briefly -- long enough for some Pittsburgh Penguins fans to grow concerned about their captain. "There is still a section of fans who think he'll get re...

Quest for the Cup Statistics

Who are you picking in your Quest for the Cup? The decision is an important one. Even if  you're just focusing on the Penguins, who do you take? Evgeni Malkin seems like the obvious choice, but what about Sidney Crosby? Or Marc-Andre Fleury? Kris Letang would look pretty good on defense too. It's definitely tough. How do you maximize your points with a player from a team...

"The Price of Greatness": Gary Bettman talks Crosby hate

Let me start by saying that I am not a believer in conspiracy theories, and that I'm usually the first to speak up in defense of Gary Bettman and the NHL whenever somebody starts the "Sidney Crosby and the Penguins are the league's pet project" or the "Gary Bettman's favorite son" talk. As much as it pains me to even write the words "in defense...

All Eyes On Crosby

from Chris Stevenson of Sun Media,  They are billing it as the “Commonwealth Cold War” here in the state of Pennsylvania. It will be, we hope, anything but cold. “We don’t like each other,” said Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby about the Philadelphia Flyers, “so that’s the way it is. You can dissect all you want, but, really, when it comes down to it, we...

Why I Root For The Toronto Maple Leafs

Brian Burke. It’s that simple. The man is truly awesome. And his latest interaction with the media lives up to that hype I just placed on him. “The Pittsburgh model? My ass,” Burke said when asked about Pittsburgh’s post-lockout rebuild. “They got a lottery. They won a (expletive) lottery (in 2005 for Sidney Crosby) and they got the best player in the game. Is that...

Brian Burke on "The Pittsburgh Model."

Brian Burke has joined the growing group of people who have decided to take shots at the Penguins in order to deflect attention from their own failures. Via Puck Daddy: "What's the Pittsburgh model?" Brian Burke snapped that question back to the media during a postseason press conference on Tuesday, examining the carcass of the 2011-12 Toronto Maple Leafs...

Canucks, Rangers look to rule NHL playoffs

The Vancouver Canucks carry the NHL's best record into the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second year in a row. The New York Rangers are on top of the Eastern Conference for the first time since they won it all in 1994. But the team many are picking to carry the Cup this year is the Pittsburgh Penguins - the No. 4 seed in the East that is supremely dangerous with healthy stars...
