Crosby cleared for comeback
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW ^ | 11/20/11 | Rob Rossi

Call it a comeback.

Actually, call it The Comeback.

Penguins center Sidney Crosby will play Monday night against the New York Islanders at Consol Energy Center, the team announced today.

In a statement it was said that Crosby would speak Monday morning after a practice.

He has not played since Jan. 5 because of a concussion.

Crosby was diagnosed with a concussion Jan. 6 after he absorbed two blindside hits over a period of five days. He was clipped by then-Washington forward David Steckel at the Winter Classic on New Year's Eve and driven from behind into the boards by Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman on Jan. 5.

Sorry Pens’ fans, but I have a feeling this is going to be short-lived. Given his history it won’t take much of a hit to create concussions symptoms once again. I think the sun has already set on Crosby’s career.

Glad he took the time to heal properly. One of the saddest things I’ve seen in sports was Eric Lindros chewing his brain away hurrying back from concussions.

Sorry, but this is an accident waiting to happen. He is an amazing player..I've seen him a few times on ice, but EVERYTHING we have learned about concussions ( primarily from the NFL studies) tell us that the effects are cumulative...so if he plays, he'll get hit again, and he will suffer another concussion, and hopefully it won't have a debilitating effect.

Did you read the article?..the person in charge of his treatment/recovery is a CHIROPRACTOR..This is insanity..

Crosby had been treated primarily by Michael Collins, a clinical psychologist with extensive neurological training who heads the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program.

Collins has served as head of Crosby’s concussion team, though Penguins team physician Dr. Charles Burke, an orthopedic surgeon, clears all players for return to play.

Crosby has been seen by a team of doctors. and he wouldn't be allowed back unless he was cleared by the NHL.

See my post # 12.

They need all the help they can get at this point. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane last night as they enshrined Eddie Westphall in the Islanders Hall of Fame. It was heartwarming to watch the testimonials from the past - Chicco Resch, Al Arbour, Bossy, et al.

Did you catch Anders Nilsson, all 6' 5", in net?

Hurricanes and Blackhawks fan here(in that order!!!)

I'm glad they had him take the time to recover...and I'm glad he's coming back. He's good for the game. I hope he has a long career.
