I think they will at least try him out on the point if his shot is as good as people say.

Crosby isn't. Crosby doesn't have concussion issues.

It's definitely possible. I kinda just envisioned Guds getting some more PP time possibly.

But you're right, it could very well happen.

I don't see him has being an upgrade over Wolski. I hope I'm proved wrong.

At the very least, I'd say that's debatable.

They misdiagnosed him. Mueller missed an entire year because of concussions. David Booth might be a better comparison if he also missed a whole year.

?

Wolski had talent but had no heart. Mueller has talent and heart, but he's unreliable due to Rob Blake.

They might have other assignments. GR might be doing the Marlins and Harvey is busy speculating and making things up.

Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby, out since Dec. 5, is suffering from a neck injury and a concussion, according to a statement from the team.

"The diagnosis of Dr. Robert S. Bray, a neurological spine specialist based in Los Angeles, is that
Sidney Crosby had suffered a neck injury in addition to a concussion. Dr. Bray reports that the neck injury is fully healed. Those findings will be evaluated by independent specialists over the next few days.

They originally thought it was just a concussion and he was having concussion symptoms when it was really his neck that was lingering. Crosby doesn't have concussion problems like Mueller.

When the writer can't get the basic facts right, I tend to ignore the rest of the article.

maybe it was a typo? Who cares about the salary that may or may not even be correct. The rest of the article is on point.

I actually was never in panic mode. Figured the incoming kids might take some time to learn, but by season's end they'd be an upgrade over what we had.

Now we have additional insurance and given the one year deal, it's low risk. If he doesn't pan out he won't burden the team's cap beyond this season. Also makes him very tradeable at the deadline if the Panthers don't need him anymore.

And Crosby missed almost 11 months... ? And all three of the hits in question (Steckel, Hedman and Krejci) weren't exactly Richards-esque. I don't see a massive difference, other than Crosby returning to form fairly quickly once he got back on the ice. But they're not comparable players in any other way.

Crosby was out because of a neck injury. Mueller was all concussion. I'd be willing to speculate that they were much more cautious with Crosby. He's their franchise.

Yes, I know the story.

He had at least one concussion and prolonged post-concussive symptoms.

You said he didn't have concussion problems.

He did.

You mean when he talks about him having the lowest salary on the team besides Ellerby.... that's a typo? Must be a pretty long one...

Wolski got a better point per game ratio and the only thing Mueller ever proved is that he can't stay healthy.
