Before suffering a pair of concussions in January, Sidney Crosby was unquestionably the best player in the world. His team was dominating the Eastern Conference, and he was threatening to put up scoring numbers not seen since Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux laced them up.
I refuse to believe that Sidney Crosby is done playing hockey. Hockey is life to the young man from Nova Scotia, and he might be the fiercest competitor in professional sports. Trust me, Crosby is not working out because doctors are telling him not to, not because he doesn't feel like it.
Crosby will play again next season, but what will await him when he comes back? Have these concussions finally done what no opposing player could do: shut Sid down?
