Re: What measures should Crosby take to try avoid concussion

If Crosby is going to play hockey and be successful he's going to do it the way that he's been doing it since he started.

His first concussion to this day was a cheap shot. His second was I believe because of a mis-diagnosis and neck issue.

In reality, those were two that weren't because of the way he played.

They should just re-enact Caddyshack in the locker room.

Bylsma grabs Crosby by the scruff of his neck meat and shoves him against the locker room rules.

B: What's that sign say?
C: No bare feet.

Bylsma lifts Crosby up further.

B: What's THAT sign say?
C: No fighting.
B: What's that mean?
C: No fighting!

Yeah, but only because the previous 2 incidents was not related to how he acts, does not mean it will not affect the future.

Crosby does not have to change his IN PLAY strategy to avoid scrums and fighting for example.

Jaromir Jagr has made a great career without throwing BIG HITS, I am sure Crosby could win a scoring title and MVP without crushing people too, don´t you think?

I still don't see how that does anything to change what happens now. He hasn't technically hurt his head playing the way he plays now. Unrelated incidents are because people took runs at him.

He could quit all of that scrum stuff and someone could STILL run him. It's not going to matter much either way.

His original concussion was likely done after a week or so, just like most other concussions we see (and probably why it was originally called a "mild concussion". It was his neck causing the "concussion like" symptoms ever since. They fixed that once it was diagnosed.


What about the alleged 2nd concussion that he got 4 days after the first one? You think that did not have any influence on the lengthy rehab?


No - that wasn't a concussion - that was an injury to his neck, which caused the year or moe of symptoms until it was addressed by a few weeks of therapy.

I think he should also skate slower so he doesn't have to risk going into the boards hard again, and getting another high ankle sprain

How do we even know he had a concussion then? If he had no symptoms after the Winter Classic but began feeling symptoms after the Tampa Bay game 5 days later - and according to you that was the neck injury even though he got his HEAD slammed in the boards. Where have it been stated the neck injury was sustained the 4th January vs Tampa?
