While taking a walk, he tripped and fell over the body of Jimmy Hoffa and thus, is set to announce that they've finally found it.

Unfortunately he suffered another concussion as he hit the floor.

DAMN YOU HOFFA.

I think he's going to say he's working out hard but not symptom free and won't be back until he is. No time table.

Honestly, I'd rather him take the entire year off and make sure he's ok. Or at least come back for the playoffs while we use his cap space to our advantage

I predict he says he's not ready for training camp and will stop playing indefinitely.

Malkin scores 115 points and wins the Art Ross and Hart trophies.

My guess is he is forced to postpone his comeback. Or he's ready? Who knows.

This. He's not ready, or he is ready. That's my guess.

Nah. It'd make more sense if he said he was taking his talents to South Philly instead of South Beach.

I don't think he would be doing press conference if he was going to show up to training camp day one. I thibk this is his way of jumping out and controlling the story when he doesn't show up day one.

I agree with this. That way it's out there, people know what it is, and *ideally* the Pens camp can begin without major distractions. (Although the media will still talk about the Crosby-less Pens, blah blah blah.) To just start camp and not have him there with no news given beforehand would qualify as a major distraction and do more damage than good.

Hopefully whatever the news is, he will be able to do what is best for his health. Concussions aren't to be messed with.

He's going to say he has retired from hockey but will continue to pursue his acting career by starring in SportChek commercials.

My money's on him announcing that he won't be back for training camp, but that he should be back at some point this season. Plus I think he'll just generally answer questions about the recovery process, since this is the first time he'll have spoken publicly since last season.

he's scheduled to do promotional stuff for the NHL after the news conference, so I doubt he's done for the season. It's probably just an update, going to miss start of camp, etc.

He'll probably just announce that he saved some money on his car insurance by switching to Geico

He'll tell us nothing we don't already know. 'Progressing but not symptom free yet'.

Yeah I think he'll say what everyone already knows - he's not symptom-free, is going to keep working at making it back, but doesn't know exactly when that will be etc. etc.
