    Default Does Crosby play this week?

    What say you, does he play this week?

    I also need to dress 2 of these 4 next week (Crosby, Malkin, M. Johansson, Silfverberg), who would you roll with?

    This is for my league below.

    I doubt it. I don't think he's taking any contact, just skating at this point. There's really no reason for him to come back before the playoffs start.
    10 team H2H !Y League (4 keepers - at least 1 must be a D-man OR Goalie)
    Start - 2C, 2LW, 2RW, 1F, 3D, 2G, 6Bench (Daily)
    G ,A, +/-, PIM, PPG, PPA, SHP, GWG, SOG
    Wins, Saves, S%, GAA (Min. 4 starts)

    The way Bylsma talked yesterday, Martin may be the only Pen to see game action next week.

    "Really, right now, Paul Martin is a guy who is really on a clear path ... continuing to progress in his rehab and has a chance to ... probably play at some point in time," Bylsma said. "Other than that, it's not definitive for anyone else, as a plan."

    I definitely wouldn't count on Crosby this week.

    Agreed, why would they risk it. At most he'll get a game or two, but we might not see him until 2nd roudnj of the playoffs if the Pens get there.

    Given how well they're playing without him and the other stars, and given that their 1st-round opponent won't be strong, I'm starting to think he won't be back until:

    1. He's 100 per cent, and a broken bone is a broken bone. Takes time.
    2. Pens are looking like they'll be eliminated from playoffs.

    I am not starting him this week.

    Don't mean to thread jack, but what about Malkin?

    Practiced in full Sunday, seems to be inching closer to 100% -- and lest we forget Malkin really needs to get going for the second season.

    I would expect we see Malkin for at least a game or two this week, but what do you guys think?
