More trouble in Pittsburgh as rumors of rift between Lemieux and Crosby had to be addressed
This generated so much noise that Penguins owner, Lemieux took to Twitter to address.
Mario Lemieux on rumored ‘rift’ with Sidney Crosby: “It’s absolutely not true. It’s silly.”

Remember all of this is coming off the heels of another star Penguin’s comments after a loss. Evgeni Malkin was quoted saying:
WOW! That’s a huge knock on the coaching staff.
When asked if the Pens can turn it around he dropped this bomb. “Yeah, it’s better for us if we have more confidence, we start to play better. But now we’re really mad at each other, we don’t believe anymore, we’re not happy. But it’s the beginning of the season, it’s a good time to stop and move forward.”
Could big trades be on the horizon in Pittsburgh? Maybe, and they could start with Evgeni Malkin.via FullTilt Rangers
Afterwards, there was damage control by Sidney Crosby and eventually Malkin came out to clarify his comments.
So is this more spin or is Matthew Barnaby misinformed? What if Barnaby is right? He’s given credible information before so you can’t discount him. All I can say is this, more losses in Pittsburgh will mean changes sooner rather than later.
