Can we rename this thread Crosby speaks?


And on ESPN, Crosby speaks is listed on one of the upcoming stories they will be talking about. With it being so close to 12:30, I am pretty sure they are showing it on ESPN.

It would be pretty awesome if he was announcing that he still doesn't have a time table and he's giving the captaincy to Despres for the time being.

They'd better make sure that there were no airplane metaphors in today's prepared remarks.

GMRS opens by offering condolences to all those affected by the Yaroslavi crash

Dr Collins is describing what a concussion is.

Dr Collins is describing the treatment of Crosby
    - At first, showed signs of "significant cerebral concussion"
    - Anticipated a very long recovery
    - They are seeing significant improvements recently
    - "Vestibular" type of concussion, affects basic motion system -- Crosby's system is why he's incredible
    - This is a manageable injury, anticipating Crosby returns to hockey
    - Want to make sure he's fully recovered
    - Started to have symptoms when he hit 80-90%
    - Dr Carrick has helped Crosby make exception progress
    - Assessed Crosby yesterday, best results they've seen, getting closer to normal
    - Crosby is in "reconditioning mode"
    - They are being very cautious with his recovery

Dr Carrick is speaking about Crosby coming to see him
    - Explaining what has been affected with Crosby, and what they're doing
    - Remapped his spacial recognition, it's "marvelous"
    - Thinks are working well now, has to condition to work with new patterns
    - "It's Christmas for Sid Crosby and the people who care for him"
    - Greatest concern is Crosby's life, in and after hockey
    - Epidemic incidence of head injuries right now
    - Crosby's current outcome is "good"

Crosby being questioned now
    - Feels good now, never considered retirement
    - Definition of "contact": any type of contact, they all create different reactions in the body (ie: skating, walking, or "body contact")
    - Crosby has to recondition before contact is fully re-introduced, prognosis is excellent that there will be no long-term problems
    - Return to play? Very positive, not quite there yet
    - Why is it "Christmas"? Recovery will have very good outcome, Crosby shouldn't have any issues (Dr Carrick)
    - Can Crosby regain vestibular function completely? Crosby's 100% is different from anyone else; he's a ferrari; no longer having vestibular symptoms at 70-80% of reconditioning (now)
    - Crosby: "maybe I could get by with 90% but I'm not going to roll the dice"
    - Not going to allow Crosby to return at less than 100% (Dr Collins)
    - Crosby has been fully compliant with doctors, and has worked incredibly hard at rehabilitation; symptoms started coming back at 89%
    - "There remains a possibility that you will never play again.." - Crosby: "a slight one, but I wouldn't bet on that", not preparing for any non-return to hockey
    - "What is 90% for you?" When he fatigues/stresses himself on turns, quick movements, etc
    - "What was life like?" Didn't like driving, watching tv. Frustrated when symptoms came back.
    - Didn't get regular updates because it'd change every couple days



Sorry, just got pulled into a conference call. Going to have to piece the rest together.

FYI, it is on Root. It's about 3 seconds faster than the internet stream.
