"He badly wants to play and be out there," Pens GM Ray Shero said Thursday about Sidney Crosby. "But he's not cleared to play."
Surprised? Mark Madden for the last 24 hours has been going on and on and on about how if Crosby has a mere headache, he may be exercising his personal choice not to suit up because he doesn't quite feel 100%. And Madden's suggestion is, Sid, you'll never quite feel 100%, so either take the risk of suiting up or retire. But stop wasting everyone's time with your silly little concussion symptoms. Don't put yourself above the team. This must be a conspiracy. Is he cleared to play? Is he cleared to play? It's a simple question, just answer the question, is he cleared to play?
"When he's cleared to play he'll play," said Shero. Ah hah. Mystery solved. Good work everyone.
How quickly we lose our patience and our minds. Read this again, then get back to what you were doing.
