03:32 PM ET 09.05 | It's no secret that concussions are becoming the most talked about topic when it comes to full contact sports. Sports organizations across the globe have been trying to focus their attention on how to prevent them and possible treatments after symptoms are reported. The National Football League and the NHL are two leagues that have been the center of attention when it comes to concussions in their respected sports. Some professional athletes have spoken out on the changes to rules and fines that have been bumped if those rules are broken. Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is one of those athletes who is the latest to speak out on how concussions are being handled by the league he represents. He suffered a concussion that put him out of awhile for a little while last season.

More importantly, will he be able to stay healthy the entire season?

Some of us hope so. The dude certainly hasn't had the best luck, that's for sure.

For Canada's sake, I hope so.

We'll be okay Danny. Canada still has that other #1 centre Tyler Bozac.

Exactly...it's like 1 and 1A when comparing the two.

Hope springs eternal. But ... he'll continue to be a target ... just because he's Crosby.

after second thought, does it matter if he stays healthy? When he got hurt last season, wasnt it about 14 games before someone caught him on the stat sheets??? If he goes at that pace again, he could play a half season
