He can only wear it as long as the NHL allows it. Full shields, cages, and jaw protectors are illegal by NHL rules except when the players is recovering from a facial injury; as soon as they say Crosby could play without it, he'll have to.
Yep. And you can bet Sid will dump will that thing as soon as he's medically cleared to do it. My baseless speculation is that he'll need it until (hopefully) June.
It's Sid, so the adjustment period shouldn't be long. Just great to see him skating with the boys. Maybe not Game 1, but he'll play in Round 1.
