?...I met him once and he was totally nice(I was in a crowd not alone), he was giving donations to poor people etc. and that is what I care about, if they are nice and are good from inside. The pens are my 2nd fav team only cause of Crosby.

Yeah, that first hit wasn't brutal by any means and neither was the one by Hedman. I'm wondering if Crosby had a head injury before the hit by Steckel.

I don't think he had one before the Steckel, I just think the hit he took got him square in the chin/head area and it had him dazed. His mouth guard popped out and that's a pretty good indicator of a bad hit. The Penguins doctors and staff take the loss for this call. Why would you let him go and play three nights later? We know enough about concussions that symptoms may not show up for 3-4 days. A week and a bit without Crosby wasn't going to end their season. They decided to end his season instead.

Why do some people dislike him...?

It's just a backlash because the league and media force feed him to us all the time. Just like Tiger Woods in golf. Plus he gets preferential treatment from the refs. Probably even more when he comes back from his concussion.

PENGUINS: CROSBY VISITED CONCUSSION SPECIALISTS ACROSS U.S.

sid_0824_78614.jpg

PITTSBURGH - All-star forward Sidney Crosby has seen concussion specialists around the United States, the Pittsburgh Penguins said in a statement Wednesday.

The specialists have been monitoring Crosby's progress as he tries to shake headaches and other concussion symptoms.

The Penguins expect Crosby to be back in Pittsburgh for a few weeks, although no specific timetable has been set for his return to the ice.

"I appreciate all the support I've received from my family, friends, teammates and fans and from the entire Penguins organization," Crosby said. "I know they only want the best for my health, and for me to be fully ready when I return to game action."

Crosby suffered a concussion in early January and missed the rest of the 2010-11 season.

The 2007 NHL MVP made progress over the summer and took part in his normal off-season workout program that includes skating, shooting, stickhandling and off-ice work.

He was obviously messed up in that Winter Classic because when Fleury left his crease to get on the bench, Crosby didn't go on to be the 6th attacker. Mistakes happen, yes, but after getting smashed in the temple like he was, I doubt it was a "mistake" that he didn't go on. He was legitimately out in left field and they should have not played him again. But they did, and now we might lose the best player the NHL has to offer to a headshot. Fun.

That's a big if since his agent has also stated there is no timetable for his return.

This may sound like a strange read, but it is what it is....

I still don't like him. But it seems my dislike has taken on a different kind of form. I used to have pretty intense arguments with others over who's better Sid or Ovie. No matter what Sid did, I always came up with some kind of reason that he didn't deserve the accolades that he got. But with his absence it has left me with a void. As if I have no one to hate anymore (I know, I know, it sounds sad). I started looking back at all the things that he's done and it led me to begin to think that maybe he's not such a douche after all. I know it was the media force feeding me 'Sid The Kid' every time I sat down to watch hockey that led to my dislike for him. Also the fact that he was a whiny brat at the beginning of his career and it seemed like he thought that everyone should be kissing his toes. It was kind of like being told by everyone that blue cheese tastes really good - sorry just not my brand of cheese. I still think that Ovie is better (but that's another argument for another time). I must admit, when he was playing in the playoffs I watched all the Pens games just so I could see them lose. But he kept on winning, so that gave the media more and more fuel, and thus gave me more and more hate. However you slice it, I was glued to the TV for all of the games! But his absence has diminished my hate for him. I look at him in a different light now. I'm kind of on the fence now. I'm not sure how I feel. I guess it will depend on how he is if/when he comes back. But regardless, every good story needs a good guy and a bad guy. Whether you see him as a good guy or a bad guy, the NHL needs him.

....I hope he comes back.

CROSBY TO ADDRESS MEDIA IN PITTSBURGH ON WEDNESDAY

sid_57097.jpg

Amid persistent rumours about the progress of his recovery from concussion-like symptoms, Sidney Crosby is set to address the media at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

You can watch it live on TSN.ca at 12:30pm et/9:30am pt.

Crosby is still suffering the lingering effects from a concussion he suffered last season and has not played in an NHL game since January 5. He will be joined at the news conference by Penguins general manager Ray Shero and some of the doctors and medical staff managing his case.

Crosby has been skating regularly and is expected to skate in Pittsburgh on Wednesday and Friday.

Last month, the team issued a statement saying that Crosby has been seeing concussion specialists around the country in an effort to monitor his progress.

Reports out of Halifax had the 24-year-old cancelling on-ice training sessions, including ice-time he had booked at a local arena, after concussion symptoms were said to have returned.

However, Crosby's agent Pat Brisson denied the report and said it is too early to speculate on whether or not the Penguins captain will be ready for training camp this month.

"Sidney hasn't been shut down by anyone," Brisson said last month. "He has simply adjusted his summer program accordingly to the different needs for the appropriate recovery."

Brisson said Crosby is doing well and his status for training camp will be discussed on Wednesday.

Anyone else think this press conference could be bad news? I like Sid alot (except for when he plays the Habs) and hope for a speedy recovery. The game needs him and so does the NHL but I wouldn't blame him for retiring if he wasn't getting any better.

Seems like this could be a big announcement if the GM and his doctors will be at this press conference.

CROSBY FEELING BETTER, BUT NOT CLOSE TO BEING CLEARED FOR CONTACT

Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins addressed the media regarding Crosby's concussion for the first time this off-season, confirming that the star centre is on the path to full recovery but is not yet ready to rejoin his team in full practice.

While there is no timetable currently set for his return, Crosby said that it is likely he will play at some point this season.

Dr. Michael Collins, one of two doctors who have worked with Crosby since the time of his injury, spoke at the press conference saying that while he expected Crosby to undergo a long recovery time when he first dealt with the injury, he has seen significant improvement recently and that his data is approaching normal limits.

Collins said that Crosby is currently in conditioning mode, and will not return until he is 100% recovered. He added that Crosby, while feeling better, isn't close to being cleared for contact.

The doctors said that Crosby was around 90% exertion rate during his workouts when he started to feel symptoms again and was shut down.

Crosby said that he feels more positive about recovering from the injury now than he has in a long time and that he is finally over the worse and on the path to making progress. He said that he never really considered retiring.

Crosby suffered a concussion during the Winter Classic against the Washington Capitals on New Year's Day. He returned four days later but left the January 5 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after being hit into the boards. Crosby sat out the remainder of the season.

Penguins General Manager Ray Shero opened the press conference with a statement extending the team's condolences Lokomotiv team plane crash in Russia.

Well...was not no huge surprise to me...I've been saying all along that he was no where's near coming back...watched the conference today....felt real bad for him.

He's come a long way says his team of specialists his road to recovery looks & appears promising......I believe one day he'll be back,but IMO....not this season.

If he is not rushed back,and from what I gathered today,this is not gonna occur,well all in due time Sid will play the game he loves dearly.

Take care of your health Sid....your young,the game is going no where's...it'll be here waiting patiently for your return.

* It'll be like Mario returning back to hockey in Pittsburgh....sort of.

I agree. If he isnt retiring im thinking hes putting his career on hold till symptoms are virtually gone

Retiring was never an option for Sid....he made this clear today......though he realizes things can occur which can be out of his control.
