As much as I hate him, you never want to see a star player go through anything like this.
I hope he makes a comeback, but it does not look good right now. Looks like it was a pretty severe concussion. That hit by Hedman was complete BS. Even though it wasn't a high-speed hit, he still nailed him directly in the back and plowed his head into the boards for absolutely no reason.
I never doubted the severity. What I didn't like was his sudden crusade when Matt Cooke made Savard go through the same thing Crosby is right now.
Sucks for ANYONE to get ****ed up like that, though. Crosby, Savard, even Boogaard. It's a shame.
I can't blame Crosby for not calling out Cooke. The guy needs to keep the lockerroom united. As for the whole crusade thing, I think it's been blown way out of proportion.
Crosby is in the unenviable position of having vultures in the media seize on any comment he makes, then blowing it up and repeating it over and over again. All of the sudden he's "on a crusade" when that's not really the case.
I can't stand Crosby on the ice, but let's be fair about this.
