Hell, i even remember callers on local radio saying Crosby is doomed and shouldn't play this season because he's only going to get killed out there.
I'm gonna go hide my head in the sand for the next 12 months.
This is directly related at you but I think the entire issue with Crosby was that the organization mangled it, from the diagnosis to the handling of the media. I mean if memory serves me correctly they even had Rossi taken off the beat because he asked too many obvious questions.
The Sid ordeal got to be pretty scary, he comes back after almost a year and has symptoms after playing a few games and not even taken hits. This after more than a handful of players missed a year, 2 years or didnt come back at all.
With Malkin, if it is just a concussion the handling of it, the reporting and even LGP comments will be fine. People just keep forgetting the reason the Sid Concussion Drama got out of control was because he had a broken neck.
Yeah, i have no doubt he will be fine but i just get a sick feeling from all the garbage that was out there and bad reporting from the Sid incident.
Agreed, I just meant more that the everyone remembers what a nightmare the Sid ordeal was and rightfully so. But it really was only a nightmare because they didnt catch the broken bone thing. The organization freaked out, all this misinformation, then secrecy, then anger at everyone like how dare they ask questions, he was skating, he wasnt, he is back, he is not up until the very end when they still never admitted he had a broken neck. From start to finish it was a mess.
If Geno has a concussion (no matter how long he will be out) it will be a much calmer situation. Unless, of course his symptoms are caused by something else.
