    Sidney Crosby

    Now I know y'all don't like this, but Sid the Kid is one of my favorite athletes. I'm not sure how many of you watch Hockey, or any of that, but Crosby really got decked with the Concussion.

    There are rumors that he will be a shadow of his former self, or have a career ending injury.

    Anybody think this? (Please put bias aside.)

    I'm a big hockey fan(my second favorite sport), but I hate Sid the Kid.

    IMO, he is overrated to and not as good as Pavel Datsyuk or Henrik Zetterberg.

    He is the golden boy of the NHL, in fact him and Alex the great are the Brady & Manning of Hockey. Oh and my team's goalie put Sid in check, Sid has a new favorite dish for food, and it's Jimmy Howard's glove.

    He'll be fine as long as he keeps his head up. I'm a Flyers fan and let me tell you, I've seen this happen before. Lindros was never the same after he got his first concussion, he turned into a shell of his former self. As long as he doesnt sustain multiple concussions in a short period of time and they let him recover he'll be ok.

    Bettman wont let that happen anyways. Who knows what he would do without his boyfriend.

    Lindros was a great player, and mad respect to him. Lol at the girlfriend thing.
    But seriously, even though I like Crosby alot, the NHL should have been tougher against concussions, if not starting with Lindros, than at least with Savard on Boston.

    I do wonder why the concussions are so much worse in hockey rather than football though. I know there are more games, and there is ice and worse helmets, but football is rough too.

    If Crosby rushes back, he will get another one, i guarantee it.

    If he wants to make sure he has a nice long career, he needs to just set aside his pride, and take himself out for the season.

    Otherwise he will take the path of Lindros (and most recently Savard) and keep getting more concussions with each one being worse and lasting longer.

    As an Avs fan, I've seen this firsthand with Adam Deadmarsh.

    I think Crosby will come back strong!

    I wouldn't worry about it until you get to see him play again.

    Thanks Freyaka for the Sig! And Avatar!

    But then the question is when?
    Like others said, if he comes back too soon, he is screwed. I'd rather see him out for the rest of the season than having another one.
