    Default Sidney Crosby, Still Isn't Working Out

    Report: Crosby still not working out


    Thursday, 05.12.2011 / 6:17 PM / News
    NHL.com

    Sidney Crosby, who last month had a setback in his recovery from a concussion, reportedly has not resumed working out.

    Crosby's agent, Pat Brisson, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by email on Thursday that Crosby "hasn't been cleared yet by the medical staff."

    Crosby was diagnosed with a concussion Jan. 6 after taking big hits in Pittsburgh’s two previous games and did not play again, missing the rest of the regular season and the Penguins’ seven-game loss to Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs.

    He resumed light workouts in late January, began skating several weeks later and started taking part in non-contact practice drills with the Penguins on March 31. He has said he was practicing at nearly full speed before he stopped working out after an April 20 practice because concussion symptoms, including headaches, returned.

    A Penguins spokesman said Crosby "has been working out" but confirmed that he has not skated since the playoffs and added that he is on vacation and won't return until the end of the month.

    Well... any belief or rumor or anything about Sidney Crosby perhaps not playing for any other reason that a true medical reason can be thrown out the window. Now the biggest question is how severe s this injury? The guy isn't going to resume until the end of May and yes there's ab out 4 months or so before the 2011-12 season starts but... it's been 5 months since he went out with his concussion. Is he going to be so fragile when he does play again that the slightest touch and he has a concussion? Does he become Eric Lindros 2?

    That's quite a change from Flyers fans usually eating a bag of dicks

    It sucks to think this way but when I think of sid right now I do think of Eric Lindros and I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of the Pens management and the medical staff isn't as well. the biggest problem with Lindros if I remember correctly is that he was rushed back on the ice to play when the symptoms weren't gone.... Now the problem here is that you can't hold a players hand for so long and the symptoms never will go away. you get one concussion and they'll always be there so at some point the kid gloves have got to come off for the Pens with regards to Crosby.

    Hockey is a physical sport. Crosby is going tog et hit in the head again. He will probably feel slight symptoms not they're going to have to accept he won't be of clean health and have him play with mild symptoms.

    If you watch the replay of that hit on Crosby by Steckel... at real speed... it was vicious!

    I wonder if the NHL will suspend Jiri Hudler for his headshot to Dan Cleary last night?

    It was a vicious hit in slo-mo... but I would venture to say that most things in slo-mo look vicious or more vicious.. For instance, i was watching a youtube on Dream Theater's new drummer Mike Mangini who I had known of for years dating back to his touring days with Extreme. He participated in something for the Discovery channel I think and they showed him hit a drum and a cymbal and put it into slo-mo and it was awesome. it looked like he completely annihilated both

    You'll like this one 419... ... Take a Jordan Staal hit in slo-mo and it might actually look like it was ore than a hip check

    I won't be shocked if Sid is never quite the same player. He built his career on out-working other players. It's hard to out-work guys when you're not allowed to work at all.

    Geno may never be quite right either... who knows? ...I'm hoping for the best.

    What exactly occurs from a concussion that 5 months later it is still showing effects? Is there fluid in the brain? Brain damage?.....Just wondering cause I wonder if whatever it is isn't gone 5 months after the fact, why would it go away at all?
