Sidney Crosby

Do you guys think he will be back to his regular form and play opening night? Will his numbers be about the same better or less than Ovechkin, Sedins, Stamkos?

He won't play opening night. Didn't you watch his press conference? He is still not 100% and said he won't come back until he is because he won't risk a repeat concussion. Which makes sense because when you still have symptoms of a concussion your time and space gets distorted making it easier for another player to hit you off guard.

He will secure the Ross on opening night. Duh.

He hasnt' had any symptoms since then and has been practising 100%. At this rate he'll be cleared for contact in a couple weeks.

Sidney playing on opening night is unlikely, but it's certainly possible.

Dunno when he'll be back, but I expect when he arrives he'll be in pretty good form. Right until he accidently collides with chara or something.

I doubt he plays opening night. Still hasn't been cleared for contact and they aren't going to rush him into the lineup when he is getting better and the team can win without him.

As far as his numbers: I have no idea. He was at an unreal pace when he left so he could continue that tear or take a step back. Will still be a force.

I expect when he comes back, he'll return to his normal form, but not his beast-mode form. That is to say, over the next several seasons, I expect he'll put up 100-115 points in a full season, but not the 130+ his play indicated before injury.

I think he'll be back by November and will put up at least a point per game.

Won't play to start the season.

Maybe back in Novemeber/December.

He hasn't played or really worked out for the better part of a year. I would expect it will take him the entire season to return to form. If he plays 40 games I would put him around 30-40 points.

Mmmk ace. He'll be back sooner than you think. He's not going to need very long to get into game shape. He gets cleared for contact and it'll be a matter of a couple weeks before he's back. With Neal and Kunitz on his wings he could be 75% of 2010-2011 Crosby and still put up a 100+ pt pace.
