As much as I don't like him, he puts butts in the seats.

That said, a 12:30 presser is alarming to say the least.

I would be happy to see it be a year to recoup and not game over

You're making something out of nothing if you see that as disrespectful. 'Cause you know, Crosby has always been an attention seeker throughout his career.

The ending of that actually becomes a point within a point. He already gets enough attention as is, I would hope or think he would recognize that he wouldn't need to do anything significant to get attention because like it or not every move him and a guy like Ovechkin make is followed closely enough as is within the sport of Hockeys media.

The only reason he's holding this conference is because the media has been craving for material.

Bottom line is the league and the Penguins need him back. More important than that I hope Sidney is fully healthy when he's back so he can have a healthy life after hockey.

This response needs more props. I laughed, then I felt bad, then laughed while feeling bad. The perfect arc of a joke.

I hope he's alright and everything but some people are really over reacting saying the league needs him and would suffer without him. One player doesn't make a team and certainly doesn't make a sport.

This has to be the best post I've seen in awhile. Confused me at first but now I can't stop laughing.

That's what we all are hoping for; the question is when.

This is the kind of post that proves that Crosby is screwed no matter what he does. If he has a press conference, he's a "diva". If he keeps quiet, he's being disrespectful to the league by not letting fans know firsthand his current status.

For the past few weeks, media folks have been asking non stop what Sidney Crosby's status is. But he's been quiet and, in fact, hasn't spoken publicly since around April. Now that he's broken that silence to finally shed light on his situation that the media/fans just won't shut up about, he's being accused of craving the spotlight?

Give me a break.

It's this no-win situation attitude for Crosby that makes reading this forum difficult sometimes. People are going to find reasons to criticize him either way.

This, and I hate Crosby. Ovechkin just had a press conference about his new endorsement deal.. At least Crosby has a reason for a press conference, unless it's not about his concussion.

And what if he's announcing he's not ready yet? Still diva in your eyes?

He's going to announce that he never had a concussion, and that he just had water in his ear from landing on the wet, sloppy ice surface of Heinz field. For eight months...

As posted previously, this will be done so Pen's training camp can move forward without any interruptions. So coaches, players and staff can focus and prepare for the season. The other part is to stop """reporters""" from saying basically anything and then the subsequent denials from Pen's brass and the Crosby camp.

I suspect it'll be the same. Progressed well over the summer, had a few minor set backs. Will not be ready to start the season. No time table given.

Yeah, it's about 3:20 ET here. I dunno if I can be up in time....

Seriously, people, he's doing it to try and shut up the media and rampant speculation. I suspect it'll be more of the same things we've being hearing for months,though.

I look forward to hearing what response from Green Men Rule you get now...

"Well..It's Sid's fault that he put's himself into those types of situations thus secretly sneaking his way back into the spot light..."

Boy that Sid is such an attention hoe...

Probably, maybe some words from Shero and DB about his progression.

I really think the Crosby camp and Pens are sick of all the ******** some reporters wrote.
