Crosby is so talented....would be a shame to see his career end so soon......
Am I alone in being skeptical about this whole situation? A concussion so bad that it could end his career sounds a bit iffy to me. They were some tough hits, but with so much time off, I begin to wonder how much of the concussion is lingering and how over protective they may be. Nobody knows as well as Crosby, of course, but I am a bit of a doubter.
Maybe we will know more tomorrow.
Sidney Crosby will address the media Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 12:30 pm ET. The media conference will stream live on PittsburghPenguins.com.
i watched about 20 min. of the live conference Sid and his doctors held at Consol Energy today...sounds promising that he will play this season...when is the question...they said he was at 85-90% going almost full speed...but once he pushed himself fully, he would start getting headaches, his vision would get screwy, and his balance was off...they're still working on rehabbing that and hope that they can incorporate some hitting in the next few months so they can see how he handles it
Let's hope Geno stays healthy...
Even if he does get back on the ice this season, the question is what happens when he gets a shot to the head again? I'm not sure, but I think that once you've had a major concussion it's easier to slip back into one again.
I hate to say it, but if sitting him for an extended portion of the season meant that he would be perfect for the rest of the season/his career, I'd think that's what they would have to do.
