Crosby is a joke. It is time to trade him for someone who wants to play. He is using a mild concussion to take a highly-paid vacation. We need players who want to play...not hide behind doctors!

You have to be kidding me. You obviously know absolutely nothing about his injury. Until about 3 weeks ago he was not legal to operate a motorized vehicle. For not being able to walk straight 3 months ago, I think its pretty amazing he wants to play now. Look at Lindros and his injury times compared to Crosby's. Besides it would be smart for the Penguins not allow him to play until playoffs considering they basically clinched playoffs already and it would just provide an opportunity for his head to get injured again. He might be a little bit of a cry baby but Crosby has more love for the game than 99% of the NHL. G

People who hate the pens always have somethings negative to say about it's players. Crosby loves the game 110% and nobody can dispute that. He went through the playoffs and won a stanley cup with an injury that he kept under wraps for weeks because he wanted to play. And play he did, thus leading the pens to a cup. So keep calling him a selfish crybaby, but wtf have you done lately?

Don't bother with "Marisa 2." She's a hate-filled little troll who spends half her life on here complaining about Crosby, even though she would fall on the ground writhing in involuntary orgasm if the Cryers somehow managed to land him.

I can't speak for Marisa 1, though. What is it about sequels that makes them so pathetic?

If you don't want him on the Coyotes, or whatever desert hockey team you follow, that's absolutely fine with us. I don't think you have much of a future as a GM, though.

Wait... so the guy who was leading the league in scoring before this "doesn't want to play?". You clearly don't understand much about concussions... just ask Penguin assistant coach Tony Granato. Back when he was a player he had a headache after a "mild concussion", went to take some tylenol one night. Nearby was a photo of his teammates and he was shocked to realize he couldn't recognize any of the faces... even though he "knew" who the photo was suppose to be of. Two weeks later, he underwent brain surgery to fix a blood clot in his brain.

Good post. It's not like an ACL tear--every concussion is vastly different. There are so many different parts of the brain that can be affected, and so many angles to get hit from.
