We still have no idea when Sidney Crosby and his elite vestibular system will play hockey again. We were confident Wednesday's press conference wasn't going to clear anything up on that front, and it didn't. But Dr. Mickey Collins today used the words "excellent" and "supremely confident" in connection with Sid's prognosis. And when a CNBC reporter suggested the Penguins captain maybe should just go ahead and retire, Crosby almost killed the guy with his stare. There was no hesitation. No doubt. Sidney Crosby is still with us. He's just waiting for ignition.
We're talking Sid tonight on the podcast, so make sure you tune in. For now, take heart. Dr. Ted Carrick says it's Christmas for Crosby.
