Crosby "Getting There"?
Standard Spin: Sidney Crosby continues to take a skate in the morning with co-concussed teammate Mike Rupp. Although Sid says he feels like he's "getting there" (as reported by NHL.com), the reality is that Sid's status is a hockey pool quagmire.
Although he may return and dominate the game once more, the prudent move for keeper owners would be to attempt to pump up Sid's likelihood of returning, and then to sell him off to the highest bidder. At this stage, Sid's career is basically down to a coin-flip. If he never comes back, right now - while there is still hope - represents the highest value he will ever have again.
Of course, we could be completely wrong... (2/12/12)
