10:23 AM ET 07.21 | That broken jaw that knocked Penguins captain Sidney Crosby out of action for some time last season and was a constant point of focus during the playoffs shouldn't be an issue anymore. Crosby spoke with CTV Atlantic and explained that he has a minor procedure awaiting and then, finally, that should be it. "Jaw's good," says Crosby. "I think I have to do some things once I get back to Pittsburgh, but pretty minor procedures and stuff that, hopefully, I really won't have to worry about once I get it done."

Three jaw stories in 2 days?

"Jaw's good," says Crosby.

Sounds like a redneck movie critic.

Permanently weld the protector to his helmet and he'll be fine.

He's been pretty quiet lately CI so he must be vacationing off-planet.

Lol ... if only all movie reviews were that succinct.

I'm sure the refs would like to see it wired shut.

"Jaw's good" till the next time jaw meets puck, stick or fist.

Yup.

Chara did during the Playoffs. Others will.

I say a "Kovalchuk return to the NHL" thread is the highest priority.

How about making Crosby look like Richard Kiel's "Jaws" from 007's "Moonraker"? That should keep the goons away from him, no?

Crosby's jaw and Rob Gronkowski's arm.

The two sets of bones most likely to require one more procedure.

Gronk's "arc" was amazingly rapid.
