Original Post:
Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has these quotes regarding Sidney Crosby’s slew foot on Ryan Callahan…

Crosby on Brandon Dubinsky calling it a dirty play…

“How many penalty minutes do I have this year, if I’m that dirty?,” said Crosby, who has 15 penalty minutes this season. “I mean, please. Show me all those dirty plays. It’s a battle and he falls. I think Dubi has done his fair share of things out there that are questionable. I guess he’s talking again. But I’m not surprised.

“It’s a battle (with Callahan),” Crosby added. “He’s holding me going up ice and I’m trying to push him off. Is it that calculated? I’m trying to get to the net. I’m not worried about that kind of thing. If I tripped him, I tripped him. Am I dirty hockey player? C’mon. I think Dubi is smarter than that.”

…he’s basically admitting it’s a slew foot without saying it. And what’s worse is he doesn’t seem to care. And people say Avery’s a dirty, classless player?

Callahan on being slew footed…

“I thought he kicked my feet out from underneath me,” Callahan said. “The ref saw what he saw. I’m not going to get into a match of words with him in the paper. It’s part of the game. You move on and keep playing.”

Dubinsky on Crosby…

“I don’t want to turn this into more than it is,” Dubinsky said. “I’m not going to sit here and talk about Sidney Crosby because I don’t really care what he’s doing and I don’t really care what he does on the ice.”
