Sidney Crosby, Congratulations to Howard Berger for writing the first, “Sidney Crosby should consider retirement” column since getting re-injured. You knew that someone was going to pen a column like this, it was just a matter of who would do it.
Berger’s reasons why Crosby should think about doing it, however, are inspired by Eric Lindros. After all, Lindros’ career came to a premature end because of continued concussion problems that turned him from a physical monster on the ice to a shell of his former MVP-winning self.
Berger says that it’s inevitable that Crosby will continue to have problems with concussions and while there’s a possibility that that could happen, comparing him with Lindros preemptively is foolish.
Back when Lindros played concussions weren’t treated the same way they are now. Even in the mid-90s, guys would shrug concussions off and come back well before their brains were actually ready for action thus leading to further problems. Nowadays you only see that sort of thing happen in the NFL. Well… For the most part, anyhow.
