The tumor from his neck moved to his jaw.

Have you ever had a broken jaw?

If it's anything more than a minor case, every single jolt to your body would cause searing pain. That would require heavy doping, and you can't play hockey when doped up. Just because we could get back to our burger-flipping jobs or litter-picking community service while on the mend doesn't mean a professional athlete in a very physical game could.

He didn't look right most of that season, and was seemingly more susceptible to injury.

I think it comes down to pain tolerance. I'm fine with Sid taking a few games to heal.

Sure am glad we loaded up on talent and leadership. Gonna need it with 87 out. That room will be fine with Tomas, Iggy, Morrow, Geno, Orpik, Neal and Sutter leading the charge.

... which could still mean anything. Sometimes, you need jaw surgery to remove a wisdom tooth, etc. Still doesn't say what, if anything, is wrong.

Saying he's out indefinitely, without knowing the extent of the damage, is basically another way of saying "We don't know what's wrong, but we're saying he's out to appease the lowest common denominator." Really terrible "journalism".

Indefinite is just another word for saying they don't know. Could play Tuesday for all you know. I will wait for his agent to say something.

Thanks Rob for the great insight. Either he had his teeth put back into place and wil be back in a few days or he has a broken jaw and is out no more than 4 weeks. Great reporting

Grass is LIKELY green... Can't commit to anything. That would be imprudent reporting.

This streak or Crosby not winning the scoring title are not worth getting bet out of shape over. Get healthy Sid. Then destroy everyone :)

Yeah, this is hardly the end of the world.

I'm actually far more worried about Paul Martin and his injury. Why? Because he's one of our top two defenseman and he will miss the first round. THAT SCARES ME.

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.


One time I was playing basketball and the other team had a real BIG guy. Like 280lbs. He got a rebound and was going up for a put back when our Center tried to block him and they hit heads.

All of a sudden, I saw blood. I looked at the other guy, he had a bloody mouth, I looked at our Center and in his forehead were two holes with teeth imbedded in them. Just the weirdest thing I ever saw.

That actually happened to our team in Baseball. We had a center and left fielder collide. The left fielder was about a foot taller, then they collided... the left fielder had his teeth go in the top of the center fielders head. Knocked out a few teeth and left a nice gash on top of the other guy's head. We all laughed.

Your hysteria notwithstanding, Crosby has a pretty comfortable lead in the points race. This isn't exactly doom.
