Crosby should sit down the whole time till the preseason next year. He needs a lot of work and better protection for his head (better helmet?). If he comes back now he will be injured before the playoffs!! And that would end his career directly!

I donīt want him quit, but i also donīt want to start playing soft on him, because i love this sport. And this sport without hitting isnīt real!!
FWIW (Not that I believe he can/will return for the postseason): There is not a Cap in the NHL Postseason... so, theoretically, I believe the Flyers could take Pronger off IR and add him to the roster without the concern of a Cap Violation... That is of course unless there is an NHL CBA rule I'm unaware of stating that a player cannot come off LTIR/IR at the end of the Regular after being on it for X amount of time.

That said, Homer has already announced up front, when Pronger's situation was revealed, that he would not play again this Regular Season, nor this Postseason... I believe the poster you quoted was listing a wish roster and pointing out a what if situation.
