Like many other people in the hockey world, Jeremy Roenick is tired of all the Sidney Crosby concussion updates.

You’d think that without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the Penguins might wilt. Did you not learn anything from last season?

Penguins fans must temper their excitement today, as Sidney Crosby said that he didn’t meet with his team of doctors to gain clearance for contact today. This doesn’t mean it’s a setback, but it’s not a big step forward, either.

The good news for the Penguins is that Sidney Crosby might make a step in the right direction today. The bad news is that Evgeni Malkin will miss a second straight game with a “lower body injury.”

Sidney Crosby will reportedly meet with his team of doctors this morning with the goal of being cleared for contact. If that happens, he’ll be on the fast track to getting back into NHL games.

Sidney Crosby starts the year on injured reserve for the Penguins, but it’s not long-term injured reserve. Fire up the speculation machine!

Sidney Crosby will join the Penguins as they travel to Western Canada to start the regular season. Just don’t expect to see him on the ice once the games start…

If you thought the Penguins were good already, just wait until you see them with their two best players back on the ice.

The Penguins’ schedule is pretty balanced and manageable, but they could go on a late season tear, especially in their final 11 games.

Fire up your relocation theories, the Kings and Penguins game in Kansas City is a sellout. So who wants to move to the midwest?

He’s still wearing his white “no contact” helmet, but Sidney Crosby took another step in the right direction by participating in a “controlled scrimmage” on Sunday.

It’s a small sample size of mostly irrelevant games, but Evgeni Malkin’s impressive preseason is becoming a source of genuine excitement in hockey circles. PHT ponders his chances of returning to an elite level after two rough seasons.

While he stood out with his white no contact helmet, Sidney Crosby also stood out for how hard he worked during the first day of training camp.
