    Here is the ice water.......

    DREGER REPORT

    Mar 30, 12:52 PM

    1) Sidney Crosby has been cleared to practice with the Pittsburgh Penguins, but neither Crosby nor the Penguins - backed up by a tweet from Penguins GM Ray Shero - can estimate when he might be able to return to the Pens lineup.

    "Will join team for morning skates, but not full practice. We have no expectations for return in reg season," Shero wrote in a tweet.

    Crosby has been cleared to skate with the team to test how he reacts in that environment, but is still considered to be a long way away from game action and won't return until he is 100 percent ready.

    It's believed that Crosby still occasionally suffers from some concussion-related symptoms, so doctors have not discussed any time lines or placed expectations on when he might graduate to the next phase, which would be to particpate in a full contact practice.

    Crosby's agent Pat Brisson admits today's news is encouraging, but cautions all who seem convinced the Pens captain is now within days of re-joining his team.

    "He's been cleared to practice to gauge how he feels," Brisson told The Dreger Report. "It's part of the process and nothing more...he could be far away

    Shero: 'No expectation' of Crosby regular season return
    Wednesday, March 30, 2011
    By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has not played since Jan. 5.

    Penguins general manager Ray Shero said today that he does not expect center Sidney Crosby to play again during the regular season, and did not rule out the possibility that he will be out until training camp because of his concussion.

    "As a manager, I have no expectation that he's coming back to play in the regular season," Shero said. "I don't believe that's going to happen.

    "In terms of playing in the playoffs for us, that's still two or three weeks away. I don't want to take away any hope from (Crosby), but to return to game action for the Stanley Cup playoffs takes a certain level of fitness and game-(readiness), and he is certainly not close to that at this point."

    Crosby will travel to Florida with his teammates today, but does not have medical clearance to participate in practices.

    Crosby, who did not skate today, will be allowed to go on the ice with his teammates during game-day skates, beginning Thursday in Tampa.

    "It's another step in the progression for him, to introduce him on the ice with 20 other players," Shero said.

    If Crosby is able to get through those skates, in which there is no contact, without difficulty, he will be allowed to take part in practices.

    Crosby's day off today was scheduled, and does not reflect a setback in his recovery.

    Even though he has missed the past 36 games, Crosby leads the Penguins in goals (32) and points (66), and is second to Kris Letang in assists (34).

    The Penguins are 19-12-5 since Crosby left the lineup.

    Yeah I know lol. He is cleared for practice but he is not allowed to practice wtf. And if he is not even close why is he going to FLA. That doesnt make sense to me. Maybe they dont want fans/teammates to get their hopes up. Who knows.

    IMO, If he's that fragile still... let's just hold him off until next season. Take a lesson from Eric Lindros and Pat LaFontaine! ...It's not worth Sid battling concussions the remainder of his career for an outside shot at the cup.

    Ray Shero is a buzz kill

    One thing to think about... when Ray Shero comes out and says something like this in regards to expectations and such... he has done the other thing. Can't trust Ray. could be playing head games with the opposition etc... who knows. I remember before we traded for LARaque, he stated quite a few teams we didn't eed an enforcer and was content with what we had and then he got the NHL's top fighter. He stated that we didn't need to add much and then also added Gary Roberts. Marian Hossa trade he kept saying he didn't feel a need to make a big deal and did out fo the blue surprising everyone.

    That said, it's kinda strange that it comes out that Crosby is cleared and then not

    Crosby cleared for noncontact practices

    By Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
    Thursday, March 31, 2011


    27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,47,0">









    Penguins center Sidney Crosby has been cleared by team doctors to resume practicing with teammates, but general manager Ray Shero ruled out the possibility of him returning before the playoffs.

    Crosby, who has been sidelined with a concussion since early January, will be allowed to participate in noncontact morning sessions on game days. The first comes today at Tampa Bay. Barring a setback, the next will occur Saturday before a game at Florida.

    Doctors have not cleared Crosby to play in games. Shero stressed that Crosby might not play again until next season, but he refused to rule him out for the playoffs.

    "To return to game action in the Stanley Cup playoffs takes a certain amount of fitness," Shero said Wednesday after practice at Consol Energy Center. "He certainly is not close to that right now."

    Still, a positive vibe remains within the organization about Crosby, who hasn't played since Jan. 5.

    His resumption of on-ice workouts March 14 was met with guarded optimism inside his camp. As the workouts increased in intensity last week, Crosby's teammates spoke publicly for the first time about his possible return for games.

    Crosby first must gain permission to resume full practices, which would include contact drills.

    Crosby's agent, Pat Brisson, warned against "jumping too quick to conclusions," but described his client's return to noncontact practices as "real good news."

    Crosby was not available for comment, but Penguins defenseman Zbynek Michalek said hearing of Crosby's impending return for noncontact practices proved to be inspirational after a disappointing 5-2 home loss Tuesday to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Penguins failed to pull into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division with the defeat.

    "He's the best player in the world," Michalek said, "and if he can come back this year, that can only be a good thing for us."

    Crosby hasn't played since he was hit from the blindside twice in four days, starting Jan. 1 at the Winter Classic by then-Washington forward David Steckel. Crosby also was hit from behind into the boards by Tampa Bay defenseman Victory Hedman on Jan. 5. He was diagnosed with a concussion the next day.

    Crosby was the NHL's leader in goals (32) and points (66) at the time. The Penguins (45-24-8, 98 points) are 19-12-5 in his absence, having also played without center Evgeni Malkin since Feb. 4.

    Malkin, like Crosby a former NHL scoring champion, is out for the season because of surgery to repair torn right knee ligaments.

    The Penguins have scored two or fewer goals in 20 of the 36 games Crosby has missed.

    "Having him back would make us a different team," winger Pascal Dupuis said.

    The Penguins grew hopeful last week that doctors would clear Crosby to resume practicing. There is less confidence of his return for games this season because of the unknown nature of concussions.

    Coach Dan Bylsma's full practices are generally fast paced and involve contact drills. He prefers the term "morning practice" as opposed to "morning skate" for game-day sessions because of their high-tempo nature and game-plan implementation.

    Injured Penguins routinely are worked into game-day morning practices before returning to full practice sessions on off days.

    There is no way to predict how Crosby will respond to increased activities, and it is not uncommon for players recovering from concussions to experience setbacks after an increase in activity.

    "This is a symptom-based injury," Shero said. "He knows his symptoms. He'll know when to pull back."
