If Crosby's groin or ankle is an issue, it needs to be taken care of before 2009.
Thats not the point. The point is that if you sit players when they aren't 100%, then getting 41 games a year out of them is a very optimistic projection.
First off, I'm referring to Sidney Crosby, not "players." Secondly, I'm referring to injuries, if present, that most likely will linger if not addressed. Thirdly, I'm not sure how the suggestion that allowing players to heal significant injuries will inevitably lead to the result that they will only play half of a season.
