Mr. Hockey says people should cut Sid The Kid some slack.Full Story. Good on Gordie. There's no reason this should be a story. Some members of both the mainstream media and the new media should be ashamed of themselves.
Hockey legend Gordie Howe doesn't believe Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby intentionally failed to shake hands with some Detroit players after Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final.
Howe said Crosby's natural shyness combined with getting caught up in the emotion of winning an NHL championship resulted in Crosby getting in line to shake hands after some Red Wings had left the ice.
"He got caught up. He will mature. He's a good kid."
