I'm fine with the way it was handled. If this came out immediately afterwards, it would have been seen as excuse making. "Poor Cindy has a boo boo on his wrist..., blah, blah, blah".
Yeah, it worked out much better this way.
I think it was more so (pure speculation, he didn't know for sure at that point / it was just bothering him / thought he'd rehab it some and he'd be fine), which explains why he waited so long in the off-season.
The announced injuries are usually something that can be classified. This year it was:
- Beau, needs surgery
- Letang, had a broken foot / hand
- Pictures of Jokinen shaking everyone's hand with his left hand because couldn't use his right.
At the time, Crosby didn't have anything like that. I'm sure if he had surgery scheduled for next week (like BB), it would have been announced then. I think I even remember Crosby saying something about just the normal "bumps and bruises" everyone has.
