Crosby coming back against the Islanders

ESPN is reporting that Crosby is going to make his return tomorrow night against the Islanders. I guess Pittsburgh wants to start him in a game where there's very little chance they'll be any physical play.

i was going to say this on the main board but after the isles just got EMBARRASSED by the bruins last night they may come out hard. Its unlikely because i can count on one hand the amount of them that have a pair but still...



also this blows, crosby KILLS the islanders...

I'm hoping Okposo grew a pair while he was sitting and he comes out throwing his body around.

I suppose it will be nice for him to exhibit that he hasn't lost his touch against a deflated, lifeless team. Combine that with the fact that we don't hit and he has an easy, storybook return set for tomorrow night.

We can only hope the team proves us wrong.

Islander fans really shouldn't make fun of someone who's 10x better than our team combined.

They should call up Haley waive Rolston. He'd still count against the cap.

That which happens to Tavares or Grabner should happen to Crosby or Neal.....

....but that's too much to ask for, isn't it?

This game is shaping up to be one of those, "I will slow your tank down by throwing my body into it's treads," kinds of games.

Guess which team is represented by the tank.

They're actually a point out of 1st place in their division. Haley also scored a goal tonight.

Bridgeport's actually a very exciting team. They have a lot of grit. I'd rather watch them than the Isles.

The NHL needs Crosby back. He's a great player, who adds a lot of excitement to the NHL. I don't understand the hatred and name calling here. I respect the hell out of Crosby, and wish we had a player half as good as him. He's insanely talented and clutch. Youngest all time captain to win a Stanley Cup, and 5th all time points per game average (Only Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr and Bossy ahead of him in ppg average).

He's great for the NHL, and I respect the hell out of him. Who gives a crap if he whines, so did Gretzky and Lemieux.

He's the biggest star and probably the best player in the game. Why do you seem surprised or offended that they're going to switch their plans to air his first game back.

well said. I agree completely. A pleasure to watch and I'm really glad he's back.

Pitts will be scary good with him added to an already very solid hockey team!

the issue is that the only reason they are showing the game is b/c of him.. they didnt even give a crap about airing this game before this happened... putting 1 person ahead of the entire league as usual..

Couldn't have picked a better game for him to come back. No one will hit him and he can skate circles around us and score 4 goals.

I don't understand..What do you want them to do? He's the best player in the league, so of course they will want to televise this nationally. Boston-Montreal is the only other game that they would possibly choose to put on Versus...But, I'm sorry, Crosby's first game back beats that easily.

If the Isles start out the way they did against Boston this game is going to get ugly quick.

you do realize that these are the types of games we usually tend to play our best in, or even win. All im saying, if we let that ***** ass make us look stupid, and we don't get physical at all, AND we get shutout, then im done with this team.

You would hope at the very least that professional pride will kick in and the Isles will come out with a solid effort tomorrow after getting embarrassed last night.

Let the Penguins get distracted with the media circus going on, the Isles just need to focus on the game and nothing else.

I have a gut feeling Tavares is going to have a big time game. Having it be Crosbys first game back I don't see JT sitting back. I'm more concerned with our line combos than what Pittsburgh and Sid do.
