08:18 AM ET 04.18 | Jaromir Jagr did a bit of piling on Tuesday. In a revealing entry on his blog which he provided a link for on Twitter Tuesday, Jagr, who won two Stanley Cup rings as a Penguin, noted that Crosby was doing damage to the way the public is perceiving him these days. "No matter which way the wind blows, one must stay cool. There's no other way," Jagr wrote. "There is a lot of talk now about Sidney Crosby and what he's been doing on the ice. Some give it a lot of thought, others less. And I am a guy who does not care at all, I take no notice. He does harm only to himself. ... [Perhaps] this helps him get into the game and play better." Crosby "does harm only to himself." Quite the candid statement from Jagr, isn't it?

Harm to himself... and his team.

Maybe Crosby is tired of being the NHL's darling.
Pens have had ample time to put a game plan together for tonight. No excuse not to get a win.
Sad we went from wanting to see the cup to settling at least one playoff victory.

Millbury was right for once. Crosby is not the goody two shoes that everyone thought he was.

Jagr is the master of candid statements.

this i think, is a valid point. Like when the pretty actor/actress decides they want to make real movies...if this is the case, good for Sid, but jagr is right, as noted earlier...he needs to just do it and forgoe the crapola

THE BISHOP!!!

I can't give Swilbury any credit. So I'll be happy knowing that this was said before by others before him...me included...

You'd think people would mature as they get older though. He seems to be regressing.

Well then, he must obviously read these threads.

Wait, are you saying that Jagr isn't "all natural"?

April 18, 2012  09:05 AM ET

I dunno, I'd rather have Sid mixing things up, showing his anger and frustration than just playing like there is nothing wrong. His heart is in the game and he he can't accept what's been happening.

2 ways to handle it though. The true leadership way of doing it behind closed doors and not being a punk on the ice. The other is what was exhibited.

Don't bother. I don't think anyone is really sure what they want Sid to be? I have seen a ton of contradictions here and in the media.

Milbury is right? How? I am thoroughly confused.

He called him a sissy boy, or whatever he called him. He goes out and shows some balls, and doesn't cower from retaliation in Sunday's game, but somehow Milbury is still right?

I am not sure Sid will ever be what anyone/everyone wants him to be. When he didn't do what he did on Sunday, people still moaned about him.

In the end, what I think is really funny about all this, is how he gets in a lot of people's crawl. If he does, then be happy he IS NOT on your team.
