Not a Crosby or Penguins fan at all. But I hope he doesn't have a career of injuries like Lindros and many others that had shortened NHL careers.

Looking forward to the skills competition and All Star game.

I hope TSN has hours of footage of Crosby riding his bike.

Lindros got his concussions from skating with his head down. Sid got his concussion from cheap shots. But I had that thought in the back of my mind. I hope this doesn't make him more susceptible to concussions in the future.

Hedman was a cheap shot...Steckel's wasn't. I live in Pittsburgh and I'm a huge fan of Crosby but I never let hometown bias blur reality. And, let's face it, Hedman's hit was borderline.

Nice to see a Flyer's fan given some love across state. I'll always remember you guys chanting "one more year" for Mario in '97 when he retired for the first time after the Flyers knocked the Pens out of the playoffs and also giving Mario a standing ovation in '93 during the pregame skate in his first game back from radiation treatments.

Quick, rehold the All-Star Draft!!!

Pens can make the playoffs with or without him. Sounds like they need an enforcer so the 'artists' will think twice.

Why? Kessel would still end up getting picked last. Can't believe they gave the Tin Man a car and money for charity for that "accomplishment".

Cut it out. Should we put a red jersey on him, so no one can hit the precious pumpkin?

Of course not. The league should still do a better job protecting the players, all of them, from blows to the head.

The should mandate football style helmets and soften up the shoulder pads. One small step also would be penalties called on accidental head shots. They call a penalty on accidental high sticks. There are few things they can do without changing the game entirely.

Not that the **** and his equally clueless lackeys will do anything about it.

LOL. Funny thing about it Stranger was they already had the registration filled out.

And is "Teenage Boys Who Want to Figure Skate" really a charity?

Speaking of the ****, it was pleasantly surprising not to see his greasy little smirk last night. Although I did have my garden gnome/english translation dictionary ready just in case.

Ouch! Can someone tell me why Kessel is on the All Star team?

Can't really print that here Rex but suffice it to say Burkie had chapped lips after his last visit to the NHL offices.
