Sidney Crosby‘s absence from the 2012 NHL All-Star Game might seem deafening to some, but he’s not giving up on the 2011-12 campaign altogether.

ESPN’s Craig Custance reports that Crosby’s been skating “pretty much” all week as he hopes to make a second comeback this season. Custance reports that he did some skating in both Atlanta and Los Angeles as he does a Carmen Sandiego tour of specialists.

Of course, there’s the inevitable caveat: he still doesn’t have a timetable for a return.

No other details were revealed as far as his progress, so we’ll just have to settle for that little nugget for now.

    @bostonsfulloffrats when you say “us all”, do you mean flyers fans? Get real jagoff

    Sounds like Sid, trying to better himself. While Ovechkin shows his nipples to 3 pasty white boys.

      Ha! yea, his nipple size represents his dedication to the league.

    Crosby is reminding me of Brett favre, just retire already, I’m sick of hearing about you thinking you’ll play again

    I agree.. Sid should retire. The league would be better off without bitchy cry babies. Take Scott Hartnell with him too.. both bitches

    Ovechkin showed his nipples and pasty cock to letangshairs mom

    Well this is good news. I hate the Pens, but the league is more entertaining with him playing. Anyway, could we tone down the antics when he does return? Seriously, it was like extra terrestrials had landed the last time around. Scanning the schedule to see what nationally televised Bruins game they can bump to cover it.

    Dear PHT, great article, but let’s not get lazy because it’s allstar weekend. Millions of fans out there require more info about the superstar Sid Crosby. How does his mustache look? What does he eat when in California? How many women has he been with since arriving on west coast? This man is a legend, please assign a team of reporters to document everyone of his god like moves. Hang in there 87, can’t wait to get you back on the greatest team in NHL.

    Look. I hate his attitude on the ice but I have
    GREAT admiration and respect for the talent that this guy possesses… It’s a real shame that concussions are running through the league like a bad influenza epidemic. And all of you guys saying that he should retire? You’re absolutely correct. You fans have to remember that this guy has a life to live. And I personally have never had one, but my best friend has had 9 of them, And let me tell you, he struggles every day. He has to year sunglasses everywhere he goes because high light exposure leads to the worst headache anyone could imagine… Now regardless of which team you cheer for, you guys need to look at these players as humans and face facts that they’re NOT invincible. C’mon Guys.

    Recap: you never had a life, but you have a cat that wears sunglasses..baltimore is filled with interesting people!!! Wonder if Sid has any cats?? Probably not, his pets are probably mountain lions.

      True Story and your piece of shit negativity just rules on. You’re an asshole that takes sports WAY TOO SERIOUSLY. YOU need to get a life

      • orpikseyes - Jan 28, 2012 at 3:31 PM

        you attempted to get your ‘sporty’ shit username 47 times before finally getting it. what a zilch.

    sidney crosby is the second coming of jesus christ. I would let the allmighty savior cuckold my wife and mother. whenever the world ends december 23 2012 and sidney picks who goes to heaven and hell, you probably wish you were a little bit nicer to him on these message boards.

    Syd the wimp can’t have a second coming as that is reserved for Timmy Tebow who is God’s other son.
