And now to see which Crosby is finally back. Will he be a shell of his former self or the same old Crosby we've watched played since his entry into the league.

it really is crazy how this took as long as it did. mondays game will tell us a lot, who knows if he's the same because that was an intense injury

My money is on him being stronger then he was. He has had alot of time to get himself in the tip top of shape. Itll be interesting to see him back in there.

He has to keep in mind though that he isnt the same guy and it will take less to injure him again.

i dont know about that one. im pretty sure the time he was trying to recover from what appears to be a severe concussion, he wasn't getting himself in "tip top" shape. he wasn't even on ice untill like late this summer right? I definitely wouldn't put your money on that he is stronger now as he ever was lol

Even leaving out the concussion angle for a second, Crosby's been out almost as long as Zach was now, and Zach still hasn't rounded back into form yet.

That said, 70% of Crosby's still probably in the top ten percent of players in the league considering his ice vision.

One big hit away from a relapse?

Good for the sport I guess. I personally can't stand him so I didn't exactly miss seeing him play.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

He's a good hockey player, but let's not get all pie in the sky, he still plays for the Pens and therefore still sucks.

In my humble opinion, he was out as long as he was because the team did not want to take any chances, no matter how small. Can't really blame them, either. PhysIcally I think he will be in tip top shape, mentally it make take him a few games.

he's a step above everyone in the world but he's still human
