After watching Crosby's "goal" in OT vs the Sabres that looks pretty decisively to me to be over the cross bar, I was pretty certain that the league treated him unfairly.  Then I saw him cheapshot Valabik on Atlanta and it was confirmed.  The Gary Bettman-NHL is in love with this kid.  Yes, he's a good hockey player.  I'd be dumb to argue that.  But he is not as exciting as Ovechkin and he isn't as behaved as Ovechkin.  Anyway, the worse part here is that Crosby was neither suspended nor fined for this.  Such a cheap shot is far more brutual, violent, uncalled for, and dangerous than any comments about sloppy seconds.  While one may argue the hit on Briere was a little bit of a cheap shot, it was no where near this bad.  So, 3 things have been confirmed:

1) The NHL has potential, but it will never be reached unless Bettman leaves.  He can't get hockey on anything better than Versus, and he's unfair to make his undeserving face of the league seem better than he is.

2) Crosby doesn't deserve to be the face of the franchise.  He can't control himself.

3) The NHL is scared to bring ANY negative attention to Crosby.
