A general hockey question

Long time lurker, first time poster here. I bleed teal but consider myself a hockey fan first. I have a general question I'd like to ask someone who knows more about hockey than I do, and here is the first place I came.

I was watching the BOS v PITT game tonight and could not help but notice the amount of harassment Crosby received.While knowing full well that is the playoffs and it is an elimination game and he is Sydney Crosby, I personally love watching him play the game and it started to get to me. My question is, Is Sydney targeted more than any other star that has ever played? Let's be honest, he is constantly harassed and physically threatened on the ice. I believe because he is the media's golden child other teams try to knock him down a peg or two. But why doesn't Datsyuk receive this abuse? Did Gretzky get it? Did they both get it but the media is so Crosby struck that they only show it happening to him? My feeling is it must be his attitude and off ice conduct that gets him the knife night in and night out.

Just an observation, I'm always willing to learn a thing or two.
Go Sharks,
