What other athelete in hockey had the stones and the wherewithal to say "I'm not good and I'm not playing till I'm good cause I want to be able to feed myself when I'm 60" Too often players that voice health concerns are told "they lack heart".

As for the injury itself, I actually find it more revealing that the Pen's medical staff partially missed the diagnosis. Yeah there was a concussion but that wasn't the only thing going on there. With the speed of our game, the armour and such, I feel this story was at least half about how team trainers/doctors/etc need to step up their game.
I completely agree with the assessment that Crosby is the poster boy of recovery.

Reminds me of another situation....

Its always a pleasure to watch the "Great Ones" playing the game.. Just hoping Sid can stay healthy and continue
playing at his former level.. I am a hockey fan first.. a Canuck fan second. Nothing better than seeing great plays by
great players ..
