Hockey “Experts” Chime In On #87’s Return

“I don’t want to pretend to know whether he’s coming back or not, but I know this. If he’s not on the ice in the next couple of weeks and starting to working out really hard, he’s not going to be anywhere near 100% come playoff time. Even for Sidney Crosby, as great as he is, if you take off two-and-a-half, three months doing very little, it’s going to take more than a week or two to get back in shape and back into the rhythm of the game. Whether he comes back or not I can’t say; if it’s much longer, I can say this, he’s going to have a tough time getting to the level that he wants to be at in the playoffs.”
—Mike Milbury, NBC analyst (and Ulf lover) interviewed by ProHockey Talk


In a live hockey chat today, the question was posed if #87 will come back by season’s end:

—Lyle Richardson (AKA, Spector) of Fox Sports

“I still think that if Sid gets back on the ice in the next two weeks, he’ll play.”
—Greg Wyshynski (AKA, Puck Daddy) of Yahoo! Sports
