Crosby's agent responds to rumours. "Sidney's parents have been extremely encouraging and supportive during this recovery period."
Brisson tells TSN..."They (parents) will not feed any negative pulse to such a passionate mind."


From Darren Dregers twitter.

Looks like it was nothing but rumours. Sorry Gordie Howe hat trick.

Anyways, I am agreeing with the majority here.. I cant see him returining this year.. even though if they start making a run in the playoffs he might feel a lot more pressure to get back in.. but I can't believe retirement is even an option.. if Lilja could eventually come back then I'm sure Crosby can.. it will just take enough time to make sure its safe.

The more negative press the NHL gets the better. I hope this story continues, and more companies like Air Canada say they'll pull marketing $$ if the game doesn't get cleaned up.

The NHL needs a major overall, so bring on more stories like this!

doesnt matter how much pressure hes under, or how he feels, it matters what the doctors say. the league wont let someone play unless their 100%, and the doctors say hes clear, when it comes to returning from head injuries.


if he retires bettman would put him right under him in the NHL front office. (not that he isn't under him in other ways already :P )

Do we have the Crosby family's address to send thank you cards?

He told me that Bettman makes sure nothing happens to him and that there is a massive conspiracy against the Wings now that he is in the league.


I freakin knew it. Okay, we have proof. Where do we go from here?

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I would be disappointed if that were to happen. Crosby is a whiner, but he's also a phenomenal talent. It would be a shame for his career to end so early.

Eric Lindros: Forced to retire by concussions.

Sidney Crosby: Receives major concussion.

Crosby family: "Sidney, retire dammit, before you're like that brainless Lindros kid!"

If true, it wouldn't surprise me, considering his sister has a concussion now too.

I Truly hope this isn't true, as much as I dislike the guy I still enjoy to watch him play and especially love playing against him. Watching the Wings take on the Pens next week just won't be the same without Crosby and Malkin. It's hard to enjoy a rivalry when your rival is missing everything you hate about them. Crosby is too important to the game and I would just hate to see someone who loves the game as much as he does have to give it up so soon. Best of luck to you Sid to a full recovery.

...Eric Lindros part II. Hate to see him have to retire so soon, but even if he did come back, he wouldn't be the same player. Guess he shouldn't have been so pampered growing up! This in the NHL bub! That being said, I hope he comes back because I would rather watch him lose than see him not play at all! :lol:

I don't want him to retire, then we can't hear the Crosby sucks chants. Oh wait... we still would chant.

Jealosuy is a *****.

Not to mention Hank has some more ownage to unleash when they play again.

Yes, because what happened almost 3 years ago now still is relelveant. Crosby has greatly improved since then, while Zetterberg has declined. There is not one GM in the league who would say Zetterberg is better than Crosby at this point and time.

How about this, I know he is chalk full of talent but I hate his attitude and everything that goes with it. Am I afraid of him? No. Do I just think he is a s***ty self centered person? Yes.


Why are you brining Zetterberg up in this. I've met them both, and Crosby was anything but a ******. maybe a little bit of a tool in a "try too hard" way, but was far more outgoing and nice.

No kidding. He's been out for how long now? and he still has more points than anyone on the Wings other than Zetterberg. And Z has 3 more points but has played 28 more game than Crosby.

That's kinda funny, cause I know you and all the plus five (or whatever it's up to at any given point) are not serious. Yeah, i hate that f***** too.Ha ha.

He's incredible. And it's a shame his season got cut short (and I'll be the first one to call out Don Cherry and the rest of the media; I don't think it was a dirty hit at all, it was an unintentional collision, more Crosby's fault than whatshisname's) because he was light years ahead of everyone in points.

And on the like vs don't like arguement, I'd love to play some pond hockey and then go have a beer with him (or hot chocolate cause the guy probably doesn't drink beer), even though I really don't like to hear about him from the casual fan. WHen the casual fan wants to talk hockey with me and thats all they can think of is the Crosby clip they saw on ESPN, I roll my eyes and think this dude has no clue as to what he is talking about.

But the casual fan is not here on LGW. There is NO reason Crosby has given the real hockey fan to hate him enough to hope his career is cut chort by a brain injury.

I hope he comes back to his 100% level, and is however awesome he is during the season and playoffs, and then the Detroit Red Wings beat him in the Stanley Cup Finals again, and again.
