I think Sid should get fangs in place of his real teeth. Or maybe he just needs to wear the jaw protector Tochett wore. You remember the one with the frownie face on it.

Do we know for sure it's just teeth and not the jaw?

There was definitely some teeth in the pool of blood on the ice. Teeth aren't like fingers or something where you might be able to re-attach them, and I'll bet they shattered anyways. Honestly, breaking teeth like that is one of my worst fears. It just sounds and looks awful.


Had my front teeth broken off/out by an elbow in a basketball game in college. One snapped off but the root stayed in, the other tooth stayed in but was pushed back so that it was pointing straight at the back of my throat - breaking the bone that holds the root in place. Had emergency Oral Surgery to remove the root and tooth and got 15 stitches in my mouth. I spit the one tooth piece into my hand and threw it in the dude's face who elbowed me.

Went to party that night. Had a great time. No biggie.

Yeah no way they put him under if he had a concussion.

Saw a funny tweet that involved Sid, oral (surgery...), and Pierre McGuire. Not board appropriate but you can probably get the gist of it.

I think he may have been trying a shot/pass to the side where Crosby was coming out of the corner, but it was tipped by an Islander and came up. Can't blame Orpik.

Understand this:

It was deflected into Sid's face.

Pens reporters need to get some hospital insiders with all the injuries these days. I demand to know whether Sidney Crosby is dead or not.

I'm just curious -- how effective is a mouth guard in this case?

It's like someone wearing a seat belt in a car crash at 100 mph; that is, a body is only slightly easier to identify than someone who wasn't wearing one.

It holds your teeth in it when they get knocked out. 8-) It's a piece of plastic against a piece of vulcanized rubber with sharp edges going 90 mph. Not very.

It really is more about preventing concussions and forcing you to keep your jaw closed, but it's not preventing a facial fracture or from losing teeth.

I could be wrong, but it looked like Sid was chewing on it when he got hit. It seemed to be hanging out of his mouth.

Yeah they are basically meant to protect accidental contact... Stick to the face, elbow, getting hit and crunching your own teeth together. An 80 mph direct shot to the face with a puck? Not so much.
