The Pittsburgh Penguins' general manager, Kyle Dubas, replied to a negative comment posted on X and he didn't hold back.

The comment was about Sidney Crosby's incredible achievement of scoring the 82nd point of his season, assuring him of the 19th point-per-game season of his NHL career. The "fan" mentioned the possiblity of seeing the Penguins scratch Crosby for the rest of the season now to not lose that mark.
"Not to be pedantic, ok fine to be pedantic. Points-per-game is a rate stat. Are the Penguins just going to sit him the rest of the year lol"

But what he completely missed, is that he can't lose it, there are 82 games in a season, and he already has 82 points.
The more you think about it, the more ridiculous it becomes. As if Sidney Crosby would want to be sidelined for games, despite of their status ahead of the playoffs.

Kyle Dubas hits back at critics online in a hilarious way after Sidney Crosby ties Wayne Gretzky with 19 point-per-game seasons in the NHL.

It seems that Dubas continued to wear his heart on his sleeve, just like when he was with the Maple Leafs, where he was known for his passionate reactions in the stands.
Indeed, Crosby scored his 82nd point this season, tying with Wayne Gretzky for having the most point-per-game seasons in the NHL at 19.
Fans and Dubas were quick to correct the error: the GM posted a picture from the comedy show I Think You Should Leave, showing a scene where Tim Robinson repeatedly asks, "Are you sure about that?"
The critic eventually acknowledged their error after the post gained a lot of negative attention:
