Sidney Crosby Is Hurt, Break Out The Tissues

Sidney Crosby is hurt, and that could be the reason that his NHL Playoff effort seemed to be lacking this year. Last night a report came out that the Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby have not decided on surgery. But, as we all know Crosby will continue to cry no matter what.

I’ll be honest with you, I would love to have Crosby in my team form a production standpoint, but I can’t stand the crying and complaining. If the wrist injury requires surgery as

reported it will, Crosby would have a valid excuse for only putting up nine points in 13 Playoff games. I’ve never been a fan of using an injury as an excuse. If you take the ice I expect that you can play up to your ability. As we saw that was not the case with Crosby.

Wednesday that Crosby was expected to undergo the surgery within days and that very well may end up being the case in the end. The source quoted in the report also noted that Crosby was definitely hindered by the injury during the playoffs as he couldn’t play the same way. CBS Sports/The Post-Gazette reported

It’s unlikely that there will be any lingering issues with Sidney Crosby’s wrist as long as all medical procedures go according to plan. But what if something goes wrong; will Crosby cry about it or play like a champion? Only time will answer that question, but moving forward Penguins fans should keep an eye on this situation.

When your name is Sidney Crosby there is pressure on you, but there is a new coaching staff, and new players on what was thought to be a Stanley Cup contender the pressure is ten times greater. No matter how I feel about how Crosby expresses himself on the ice; I’d never wish a player ill. Hopefully he has a full recovery, because the NHL does need him.

Once a decision is made on Crosby’s wrist we will bring you any news available.
