The Pens screwed this one up so hard. This all goes back to allowing him to play after the first hit in last years Winter Classic. His career is going to be forever riddled with concussions, until he's forced into retirement a la Lindros.

Still having concussion symptoms. This isn't going to go away any time soon for this kid. When they held that press conference with the doctors, they said that when he came back he would not have any secondary concussions etc. from hits. This doesn't bode well for Crosby at all.

His symptoms were probably worse than anyone thought.

Everyone is calling this his second concussion. The fact is, he got one at the Winter Classic. He got another one 7 days later, while still suffering from the first one, in Tampa. Now this one, that he is suffering from, would be his third. In less than one year this guy has had three concussions, end of career starts to look more and more plausible as this goes on.

Concussion feelings

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby empathizes with Orpik and anyone else dealing with a concussion. He got one when he was about 11 or 12 playing a rough kids' game.

"I was playing Wall Ball and I was running away from the wall and fell backward," Crosby said.

He said the effects, which including vomiting and headaches, lasted a couple of weeks.

His only hope could be to take a few years off and pull a Lemieux, if you know what I mean.

I'm still not sure we understand concussions all that well. Crosby could come back and never suffer another one or this could be the beginning of the end of a promising career.

It's really a shame and I think being a star player does put a target on the backs of guys like Crosby and Lindros. For all those who think hits to the head are an important part of the game or those like Cherry who ignorantly make fun of taking concussion precautions, is it really worth losing the most exciting players in our game over? Who would really have sold more tickets: Scott Stevens or a healthy Eric Lindros? I'd take Lindros in a heartbeat.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is undergoing a series of tests with a neurological spine specialist, the team announced Saturday. The 24-year-old Crosby, who hasn't played since early December because of concussion-like symptoms, travelled to California on Friday to meet with Dr. Robert S. Bray.

While he may not be participating in All-Star weekend, Sidney Crosby is skating as he attempts to once again return from concussion-related symptoms.

The Penguins star had been skating for nearly a week in both Atlanta and Los Angeles, prior to boarding a flight back to Pittsburgh on Friday morning.

Crosby missed nearly 11 months of action because of a concussion before returning in November.

In his season debut, Crosby recorded a four-point night in a win over the New York Islanders. However, his return only lasted eight games before he was sidelined again after a game against the Boston Bruins.

The Penguins captain, who has not played since December 5, consulted with neurological spine surgeon Dr. Robert S. Bray in California and chiropractor Ted Carrick in Atlanta. Carrick also specializes in neurological treatment.

Despite taking part in the on-ice workouts, there is no timetable set for Crosby's return to NHL action.

Is he not in Ottawa?

I understand he's recovering but can't he put on a tie and show up?

...

I just reaD on my CBC app that there's something about a neck injury. I can't get the link copied on my phone. Maybe someone else can?

But wow. A neck injury on top of recurring concussion symptoms? Not a good diagnosis.

The thing is, I don't think anyone can diagnose exactly when the neck injury occurred so to blame the neck injury on his recent woes may be wrong. His neck may not have been broken at the same time he suffered the concussion and may very well have happened while he played junior hockey. Certainly questionable is the Penguins medical staff.

I'm a lil suspicious about Sid's injuries/concussions.

Horton was leveled in last seasons finals, joined his team in October-had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. Weber suffered a concussion and is already back, alfie concussed and back, Giroux concussed and back, Riemer (who ha had multiple concussions) is back, Miller run over by lucic and he's back.

Mr Crosby who made it to the bench on his own (in both situations-the hedman hit didn't look bad at all to me, no charging, head wasn't the target), misses almost a full season.

I know they want to be extra careful with sid, but I have a feeling it's being exaggerated in his case. Savard had multiple concussions and it was evident that he was in real trouble. Had sid's concussions been like Savards, I could understand the lengthy time off. I feel there's more to it than just the concussions.

The concussion he suffered in the winter classic (Knuble?), was a pretty hard hit to his head. But the rome hit on Horton imo was worse.

He has been there in the past, despite having injuries that caused him to miss the weekend.

So I'm not going to be too hard on him, specially if he's meeting with doctors.

The one that bothers me is Ovy. I feel he's being a baby and it's not like he's been vintage Ovy, he's been pretty average over the past few seasons, so his presence is not really missed.

Again, I think he's being a baby. There was nothing questionable about his suspension. His feet left the ice, like he's done throughout his career and he's finally being called on it.

Suck it up Ovy, you got away with stuff that most in the league wouldn't cos you were a 50 goal scorer. Now that you're a 30 goal scorer you're being treated like all the other NHL and you're crying about it... Taste of his own medicine imo.

I like Shanny for this, in his eyes no one is above the NHL. Everyone has to follow the same rules, even if you're considered a superstar. Under campbell, you could do whatever you wanted as long as you scored 50 goals a season.

Just because he's a 50 goal scorer he won't be penalized and he can cause other players to miss games due to injury, caused by illegal hits which in his (Ovy's) eyes he doesn't have to answer for.

Wake up Ovy.

It's finally catching up to him and he doesn't like it. It's about time his head comes down a few hat sizes.

I'm thinking Crosby may have had more damage done to the exact same part of his brain that was probably previously damaged(possibly in Junior hockey). As for the other players you mentioned, each concussion has a level of severity but if those players get another concussion in the same area of the brain they too may be out for an extended period of time.

I thought the problem with concussions is that everyone is different
