Crosby to stay in California, hang out at beach

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby isn’t rushing back to the Steel City anytime soon.

That’s what head coach Dan Bylsma told reporters today in updating the status of his star player. Crosby is still in California after meeting with neurological spine specialist Dr. Robert S. Bray and will remain there to treat his post-concussion symptoms.

Once again, Bylsma said there’s no timetable for Crosby’s return — but in this instance, no timetable for his return to the ice or to the city of Pittsburgh.

“Not a timetable because it’s possible he could stay there for a little bit of a break as well,” Bylsma told the Penguins website. “Not a definitive day for him to be back in Pittsburgh, because he’ll be staying on the beach for a little bit.”

Beach living aside, Crosby’s in L.A. to work with Bray at the DISC Sports and Spine center, which Bray founded and is now the official sports and spine center of the L.A. Kings. Bray’s website includes testimonials from 2008 U.S. Olympic team members Sarah Haskins (triathlon) and Melanie Roach (weightlifting) — he also worked with the American contingent that went to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Games.

Prior to meeting Bray in California, Crosby met with noted chiropractic neurologist Ted Carick in Atlanta.

    I’m glad he decided to pursue medical treatment outside the neurological mecca that is Pittsburgh. haha Sounds like a good plan for him.

      Thousands of Metal bands would disagree with you.
      But whatever.
      Go back to listening to Korn

    Sharks and seals in California are now extinct. They killed eachother off fighting for the privilege of recieving Sid’s game-changing seed. I wish I wasn’t born an only child because if I had a sister I would offer her up Sid. Take your time 87, Team is in good hands

      You do realize you have James Neal’s name spelled wrong, right?

    What a pussy. I hope he never plays again. And if he does play again I look forward to watching him get drilled in the head and ending his career.

    • blacksabbathrulesall - Jan 24, 2012 at 8:29 PM

      Typical classless Philthy fan.
      What exactly have the Eagles ever won?
      2 time Superbowl losers
      And multiple NFC Championship losers
      You should have no opinion about anything.
      Come back when you actually win something.

  12. pittsburghpoonslayer - Jan 24, 2012 at 8:39 PM

    blacksabbath, don’t let those filthadelphian wanna be winners get you upset. the only thing they ever win is the number one dirtiest city awards in the u.s. so let them marinade in that fart smelling cloud that fills each and every one of their filthy trailers they call a home.

    • blacksabbathrulesall - Jan 24, 2012 at 9:06 PM

      They don’t get me upset.I have to laugh at them because they talk a lot for never winning anything.
      They have to make it up somehow for their shortcomings.
      Example: The Philthy fans that had to gang up on the Rangers fan because they couldn’t deal with being LOSERS

      • blacksabbathrulesall - Jan 24, 2012 at 9:09 PM

        But I am sure they will use the Philthy Phillies won a title. But who cares about baseball really?
        We know the Pirates suck but nobody cares until they get new owners.

      • thefalloficarus84 - Jan 25, 2012 at 7:40 PM

        technically…that guy was from jersey. I think we can all agree that jersey sucks…

  13. jamesmakesurmomneil - Jan 24, 2012 at 9:00 PM

    Eagletrash- only thing filthy has ever beaten was a proud,out numbered war hero. That entire fan base is a joke and you miss, are no diferent. Sid the kid has more talent n class in his left testicle than your entire organization. At least the pens can whether the injury bug, unlike Philly who falls to pieces when jagr’s groin hurts

  17. pittsburghpoonslayer - Jan 25, 2012 at 6:10 AM

    who cares about the
    philthadelphia phillies, baseballs not even a real sport. they showed how classy they were sucker punching the rangers fan. but I guess you grow up with a chip on ur shoulder because anywhere in the world is better to live than that ugly city.

    I still can’t believe the league has lost a major face of its franchise to concussions and missed the broken neck!!! Whoever is responsible, league and/or Pens should be investigated. A complete embarrassment for the league!!! Too bad that nearly worthless ESPN hasn’t done major programming on this!!! Imagine if It where M. Jordan. This has surely changed his career and reputation.
