Chances are the headaches will persist for a while (hopefully Sid can help Geno with some advice on stuff to avoid, etc) and he won't even step foot on the practice ice until they're completely gone for several days at a time. Remember, even once he can skate and practice a little bit again, they'll keep testing him for a while after that. The time out is as much about precaution as about how he feels.
Crosby became somewhat of a concussion expert during the time he deal with his. Reading, researching, etc. He'll be a great help for Malkin, I'm sure.
