    Wow! I’m still amazed that Steckel did not suffer any consequences as a result of his blatant hit on Sid. I only hope that Sid is able to come back next season because he truly brings a different level of excitement to the game. Godspeed, Sid!

    1. Derrick says:

      I don’t know how blatant the hit on Sid was but it hurt him tremendously and may leave some permanent damage to the Gentleman. Something has to be done NOW to limit those types of blatant or accidental hits anyone does to another player.

  2. Tony says:

    This is the first clue that Sid won’t be coming back……bet we get more nuggets likes this as the summer progresses and training camp gets closer.

      Why don’t you stick your finger in a light socket and remove youself from the gene pool?

    Bum?!?! He is only the face of the NHL and the best player in the world. He is the heart and soul of this Penguins team. Look what happened this year without him, eliminated in he first round! I wish Crosby the best, and hope to see him on the ice again!!

    1. Ryan. S. says:

      He is the best in the world at floating around center ice waiting for his linemates to do the dirty work and get him the puck!

  5. Ang says:

    G……you’re and idio!t…Crosby is the best talent in the NHL….the NHL needs him badly!… really need have a clue about what you’re talking about before you post!

    1. Ryan S. says:

      Best in the NHL? No! One of the best? Maybe. On what do you base your assumption that he is the best? Because the fans in Pittsburgh say so? I can think of a handful of players that are as talented who play BOTH ends of the ice, Pavel Datsyuk comes to mind. Listen, I won’t take anything away from Crosby’s offensive abilities, but there is more to this game than Goals and Assists. Although not a critical stat, his plus/minus until this season was well into the minus range which indicates that he was on the ice for the oppositions goals more than when the Pens scored.

      1. Dave says:

        Not the best in the NHL??? How many 21-year-old captains lead their team to a Stanley Cup Championship? How many 22-year-olds score 50 goals in one season? How many teams have a captain who is barely out of his teenage years? None.

    Too bad. Best player in the NHL & I’m a Capitals fan. This guy is good for the game & something needs to be done about these vicious checks. What though when a guy is flying at you, how do you stop?

  7. lmc says:

    Doesn’t matter if season is over or who the player is. They (the players) love the game and deserve to play. Just hard to hear rumors that a career may be over due to hit like that.

  8. jillan says:

    sidney please get it better i miss you and were married and i need to see my hubby on the nice

  9. Dave says:

    I suspect that he’s not going to have much of a career in the NHL (assuming he comes back.) For him to still be suffering, it’s only going to take another hit and he’ll be out forever. Hope I’m wrong but….

  10. danny check says:

    why should he play, made his miiiions, has a good life, if he does play, he will be a target, stay down.

  11. tim says:

    He’s done. Never be the same.

  12. hockey mom says:

    Depending on the severity of the concussion, it can take up to a year to fully recover. I think that his doctors and trainers are being wise in recommending waiting to work out. It may just save not only his career, but his life and quality of life post-hockey. Sometimes we just have to be patient and wait.

  13. Irish Eyes says:

    @ Danny Check – to a person like Crosby, money is not a factor. That was evidenced when he voluntarily accepted a lot less money at his last contract signing, in an attempt to keep more players from leaving. When you have a true love of the game, it’s like an addiction – you want to play constantly. Hockey is Sid’s own form of heroin, so to speak. That’s why he is such a standout because of his love of the game and constant desire to make himself better.
