Sidney Crosby's recovery progress has reached the point where the speculation over his return is starting to look at specific dates. He recently ruled himself out of the Penguins games against the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings.
Past that, despite endless speculation, there remains no formal timetable or date targeted for his return. Many wonder what he will be like when he returns.
Aside from the possibility of a little bit of time needed to get used to game speed, I fully expect Sidney Crosby to slide right back in as the best in the game. If you think that is a bit of a stretch, check out the slides for the reasons why.
