08:24 AM ET 03.22 | Brooks Laich, who earned heaps of good-guy street cred after a playoff loss a few years ago, generally manages to play a good guy on his weekly radio hit with "the Junkies," too. Once in a while, though, the Junkies attempt to ask Laich about the Penguins and Sidney Crosby, and then it occasionally gets interesting. I can't find the proof, but I know it's happened in the past, and it happened again this week. J.P. Flaim: You said you watched a game last night, did you watch any of Crosby's return? Laich: No, I didn't watch their game. Jason Bishop: He doesn't like talking about Crosby. He doesn't like talking about Pittsburgh or Crosby. Flaim: He had four assists! I mean, you've got to give him his credit. Laich: Well, whatever.

After reading this Post, my thoughts exactly: Whatever.

You can't find the proof, yet continue to troll ...

Let's Go Pens!

wow, this is a new low. This makes all of the Sundin stories look like hard hitting jounalism

March 22, 2012  09:16 AM ET

I don't understand this. Whatever.

Word. I can't imagine that Crosby gives a flying **** what anyone thinks of his performance//skills, and vice versa. Trying to cause problems where there doesn't have to be any. After all, haven't they learned from Semin's idiotic remarks?

"Well, whatever"....was probably Green's response when ol' Brucie used to tell him "********! Green! You've gotta ******* play some mother ******* defense!!!"

March 22, 2012  09:24 AM ET

Well, whatever.

OMG, like gross.

Have no fear....this is T&R....I'm sure they're quite capable of hitting much lower lows...

I gotta agree with Laich on this one, whatever. In the last 30 games the Pens are 24-4-2. Most of those wins came without Sid. They are a better team with him, but they can play without him.

absolutely disgusting elbow. If Doan got 3 games, I think that this has to be at least 5. Worst of all thuogh is that with a stupid play like that he could legitimately taken Sedin out for the playoffs.

This thread is pointless. Whatever.

He dropped like a soccer player...oh wait, he is!

Laich is struggling to remember when the Caps used to have a bona fide superstar of their own...
