I would venture thay Sidney Crosby is one of the half dozen greatest hockey players who ever laced up skates, right up there with the likes of Wayne Gretsky and Bobby Orr. What’s more, still in his early twenties, Crosby’s greatest hockey is ahead of him.
But there is an ominous cloud on Crosby’s career. Eight months ago he suffered a serious concussion. He has not played since. And further months of rehabilitation have not been effective. It now turns out that Crosby’s concussion symptoms return when he tries to operate at the 90-percent exertion level.
So what happens to this super star now?
He could go back to square one in his rehabilitation, hoping eventually to return to professional hockey, thereby risking another serious concussion or even death.
Or Crosby, a wealthy man, could call it a day and choose another profession including coaching or managing an NHL teeam/
Should Sidney Crosby give up on hockey?
What do you think?
