I don't know, but I can tell you that I think if he takes another hard hit to the head at anytime next season he's done.

That's a really sad reality. And not because it's Crosby. For any player that can't take that next hit for fear of "who knows", it's sad. The irony in some of these situations with teams is just... I don't know the word.

According to a report, Sidney Crosby is back in Pittsburgh and is expected to be re-evaluated by a concussion specialist in the next week or so.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said Saturday that Crosby still needs to be cleared before he can begin his off-season workout program.

The Penguins' captain has been sidelined since Jan. 6 when he was diagnosed with a concussion. Crosby was cleared to practice without contact in April but had to stop when he experienced headaches.

Not Returning

In other Penguins news, the Post-Gazette reports that the team will not be re-signing free agent forwards Mike Comrie or Alex Kovalev.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero told the newspaper that after Comrie struggled to return from hip surgery last season, he didn't know what the 30-year-old had planned.

"He might be leaning toward retirement," said Shero.

Kovalev, 38, was brought in from Ottawa during a March trade, but put up just two goals and seven points in 20 regular season games.

Has Kovalev seen the end of his career?

If we cant find a top 6 winger I wouldn't mind giving him a low paying 1 mil or less contract for 1 year as a 3rd line winger. He could be good with Eller

I'll pass on him.;)

Looked somewhat lost at times last season....IMO.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby has been cleared to resume off-ice workouts in a few weeks.

Crosby met with concussion expert Dr. Michael Collins on Tuesday and will begin his summer program back home in Cole Harbour, N.S., within three weeks, the team said in statement Thursday.

"I met with Sid (on) Wednesday before he left for home and talked to Dr. Collins," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said. "(Crosby) will resume his workouts and get back into his program in Cole Harbour."

Crosby, who was sidelined in early January after sustaining two hard hits in as many games, was enjoying his best season with 66 points in 41 games before he was hurt.

"Everything will be closely managed by Dr. Collins," Shero said, "in terms of his progression leading up to him getting on the ice later in the summer per his usual routine."

The 23-year-old Crosby will not start on-ice workouts until late July or early August, which is his normal off-season workout schedule, the team said.

Without Crosby and fellow injured star Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins blew a 3-1 series lead and lost in seven games to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs.
