Sidney Crosby to Return Tomorrow
10 and a half months after suffering concussions on hits by David Steckel and Victor Hedman, the best player in the NHL is set to make his return. Sid and the Pens will be at home to the New York Islanders.
Will he be the same player he was before the injury? How can he not be tentative going into the corners? How can he play with the same ferocity? It seems as the though the Penguins did not rush him back, which is only going to be good in the long run. We have learned what returning from a concussion too early can do – how many players have suffered multiple concussions only to have their career cut radically short?

Either way, Crosby coming back is good for the Penguins, great for the NHL, and fantastic for us, fans. The Hockey world waits in anticipation.
…and that is the last word.
