No one at the NHL office has to worry about Crosby making a misstep on Twitter because to him, that form of social media is a one-way street.
He travels down that road to find information, not to provide it."I'm pretty old-fashioned," Crosby told USA TODAY Sports. Because I do a lot of interviews, people might believe I want my opinion heard. This just comes with the territory."Crosby has patience with the puck on the ice — and with his off-ice obligations.
He is impressively accessible for a player of his stature, especially when you consider he has been treated like a rock star in Canada since he was a 17-year-old playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Now in his 10th NHL season, Crosby has two Olympic gold medals, one Stanley Cup championship, another trip to the Final, two NHL scoring championships, one goal-scoring title and five 100-point seasons.
And how rich is the boyfriend of Kathy Leutner in terms of friends & family?
- Days before the 2005 NHL draft, when 17-year-old Sidney Crosby was interviewing with all 30 teams, the New York Rangers asked him the mother of all questions."They asked, 'If we could give you a pill that you could take that would guarantee that you would be part of a Stanley Cup-winning team and a Olympic gold medal team, but you couldn't live past age 25, would you take that pill? Crosby knew the Rangers were trying to ascertain whether he would be willing to do anything for his team.
Crosby delivers on the ice and does as many interviews and appearances as a league has a right to expect."I don't think it is possible to do more for a league than Sid has done," said Pittsburgh Penguins President David Morehouse.
Crosby arrived in the NHL right after the canceled 2004-05 season.
