Crosby-Richards rivalry inevitable
By TERRY KOSHAN, SUN MEDIA



Participants for Canada at the world junior will tell you the bonds they form with teammates at the annual event will last long after their playing days are done.

But will the bond formed by Sidney Crosby and Mike Richards when they played for Canada in the 2004 and '05 tournaments stand the test of time? It's going to be fun to observe whether it will. Undoubtedly, it will take plenty of resolve on the part of both players to keep it from breaking.

Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins and Richards' Philadelphia Flyers have formed a rivalry that has become one of the hotter ones in the NHL -- a nasty match between the two clubs this week has fans anticipating more of the same in their five remaining head-to-head clashes this season -- and one can bet Richards will take pride in trying to shut down Crosby in the years to come.

Both have signed with their respective teams for the long term and both, despite their youth, play with a passion that is not met by a majority of their NHL brethren.

Crosby is the mould by which any offensive player will be measured for the foreseeable future, and Richards soon should develop into one of the top two-way players in the game.

Crosby, meanwhile, nearly came to blows with Flyers goalie Martin Biron on Tuesday, but had second thoughts.

"I'd like to (fight Biron), probably. But at the same time, you don't fight a goalie," Crosby said. "Goalies square off with goalies. That's the way it works."

No comment on whether a whiny a** sissy will square off with whiny a** sissies.
