    Byfuglien ‘didn’t enjoy’ his World Cup experience

    It’s getting harder and harder to find positives in the aftermath of Team USA’s poor performance at the World Cup of Hockey. On Monday, Winnipeg d-man Dustin Byfuglien weighed in on his time at the tourney, telling Sportsnet it wasn’t much fun. “The experience and everything that went on, it is what it is,” Byfuglien said. “You know, I didn’t enjoy it.” That revelation is hardly a surprise. Head coach John Tortorella made Byfuglien a healthy scratch for the tournament opener against Europe — a dismal 3-0 loss — then played Big Buff just 10:50 in a 4-2 defeat to Canada.

    Sadly, Crosby praise still comes at Ovechkin’s expense

    Here’s a homework assignment for you: praise Sidney Crosby‘s incredible work without downgrading Alex Ovechkin. Yes, it’s not easy. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun presented an interesting column that spotlighted an admittedly “tired narrative” while still ultimately pumping up Crosby at Ovechkin’s expense. LeBrun quoted anonymous executives who, yes, trotted out tired narratives. One executive did the baseball thing in making it Crosby (“five-tool guy”) vs. Ovechkin (“home run hitter”) while another equated it to a full-court player vs. a “half-court” player. It’s all … well, tiresome. Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that
