Good to hear.

I cannot stand him as a player, however, its good to see him back finally.

We'll see if the Islanders decide to play him physical.

Some turds just won't flush. But good to see that he's ok and that he didn't lose his career.

Don't care for the guy, but I also wouldn't want to see anyone end their career like that. Good for him for being able to come back to this great game

I'm torn.

On one hand, I don't want anyone's career ended because of a concussion. On the other, I think he's a smug, smarmy little ******.

The agony.

Hopefully he still plays as well as he did when he left. Don't like him, but I'm hoping this teaches him how valuable the game is, and if we pray real hard... he'll be humble in returning.

Wow it's been a long time, as much as no one here likes him it's good to see nhls best player back in action. It will be interesting to see if he stays as dominant as he was before the injury.

So will Bettman declare that tomorrow night is the true official start of the NHL regular season?

He'll still win the Art Ross and Rocket Richard trophies this year.

And they're easily the favorites to win the Cup if he and Malkin are healthy.

Are you willing to bet on that?

I'm glad he's back. I'm not his biggest fan, but Crosby is an excellent player.

To bad Crosby is going to take the Marc Savard route...

Crosby doens't carry the CHARISMA Wayne Gretzky had. That's why he doesn't cross over as an athlete who's well liked by Sports Fans in general. Hell, most NHL Fans don't seem to like him, except for those in Pittsburgh. Therefore, I don't really care about his return. Hockey has been the same for me with or without Sidney Crosby.

Crosby is just an unlikable guy.

At any rate, I guess this means the Thanksgiving Wings-Boston game will just be a Crosby fest even though Pittsburgh won't be playing. Being on NBC and all.

Amen. He doesn't dominate or represent the sport the way someone like LeBron (like it or not) represents the NBA. He is a world-class player, but he's playing during a time that there are several candidates just as good as him. The point is there was no debating Gretzky was the best of his time, yet people argue all the time that certain players are better than Crosby. He's just another superstar to most fans.

It'll be interesting to see if Cindy will be the same player again. Dan Patrick on his radio show is saying doctors think he'll only be a 15 minute a night player if he's able to make a comeback.

Crosby still sucks, but I wish him all the best in his return.

Yes. My monopoly money isn't a full set anymore, so a new full set would be great. Although, I think we could bet something more Red Wings oriented instead- it is more fun that way.
