Off topic but Thread title should be changed to "The NHL, the only place Canada matters" IMO

Leafs get the shutout win.

Wasn't pretty, especially the first period. Took a fair bit of luck. Big 2 points though, 3 out of 4 points against the Pens certainly isn't something to complain about.

He has been practicing and will return this season IMO. He has a soft-tissue injury of the neck which they think has been causing the symptoms and it can be treated.
There's more instances of players never returning to their former selves after concussions than there are of players returning to their former selves, that's why. If Crosby isn't Crosby by the end of next season, he's gotta walk and the focus should be on locking up Malkin and Neal long term along with signing either Perry or Getzlaf. Pens fans need to stop and think that maybe, just maybe Malkin is Lemieux and Crosby is Jagr. Maybe Malkin is the Penguin for life and not Crosby. It's a hard reality to wrestle with as a Pittsburgh'er, but it's a notion I've come to accept.

Nobody is untouchable in any sport. Joe Montana was traded, Brett Favre played elsewhere, Gretzky played for several teams, Peyton Manning is about to be released, Shaq was traded, Jordan played for the Wizards, LeBron isn't in Cleveland anymore, and the list goes on and on. We live in a new sports era where no player is untouchable in anymore sport and can leave/get traded at the drop of a hat.

I am shocked a Pittsburgh Penguins fan is considering a Crosby trade. How fucking selfish.

Default Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

In the past 13 months I believe Crosby has played like 7 games. When you miss so many games, and more to come, I would hardly call it selfish for a fan or organization to trade one of their best players especially if they can someone good for him or just clear the heavy cap he brings.

If he can't be himself any longer, why would I want him on my team? I'm a Pens fan first and I'd rather see the team succeed than the individual player. Like I said, there's many more instances of players never being the same again after a concussion than there are of players that have returned to their former self. If all is good at the end of next season with Crosby then re-sign him. If not, no point in tying yourself down long term.

Crosby saved your shitty franchise from folding in the first place. You should be forever grateful that he's on your team or else you'd probably be cheering for the Hamilton Bulldogs right now

Default Re: The NHL: Where people get concussions

Penguins were never going to fold, so I have no idea what you're talking about. Crosby isn't some type of god either, one of the best players in the league, yes, some untradable player, no. He's just another player like every other player in the league and if he isn't on the ice, then there really isn't a need for him on a very good franchise.


Edit: Jackets got screwed by the Kings clock guys. Should be heavily fined to be honest or the ref should be fired for fucking that up.

Who cares? So the Pens should keep on the payroll for that reason alone? Thank God, you don't GM or else you'd be running teams into the ground. If Crosby can't produce quality numbers anymore, you don't keep him on the payroll. It's simple business.

I can't believe this Wild/Avs game has been 1-0 for about 50 minutes on a goal scored by of all people Greg Zanon.
