    Default Crosby Out 6 Weeks [Core Muscle Surgery]

    All that's been said is he won't play in the next two games and he's still being evaluated.

    He was hurt on Saturday and they still haven't given a timeline. What's up with that? Any insight/updates that I missed?

    edit - here is Pengwin's update as posted:

    "Confirmed, source below says a MINIMUM of 6 weeks.
    https://twitter.com/penguins/status/...847946241?s=21

    Puts his return back, probably after Christmas.
    Pens have a Western Canada road-trip before Christmas, then a game in NAS on Dec 27th.

    Puts potential earliest return more around a Dec28th (Sat) home date vs. Nashville."

    At the game Saturday, Sid was hit in lower leg by a puck late 2nd period. I didn’t see much else but play went on. Didn’t go down the tunnel right away, but I’m not sure if he took another shift. Pens tend to keep ‘em close to the chest... I’m still unclear as to Letang’s, too.

    Not the first time Crosby has been "under evaluation" for a while with not much being said about it.

    True, I remember that (relatively minor) concussion that he got a few years ago where there was little information coming out and everybody panicked. I think he was out for only like 2 weeks. The Pens keep it under wraps like King Tut when it comes to this stuff.

    It's apparently a core muscle injury.

    Malkin tends to ball out when Crosby is down. Do they have the depth to handle that now? Interesting 6 weeks coming.

    As a Crosby owner it's disappointing to see minimum 6 weeks instead of the 4-6 weeks timeframe some suggested. But I am glad he got it done promptly and didn't elect to wait until the offseason. It was likely hindering his play and it's best to get it done earlier in the season. He could have reaggravated it which wouldn't be good for anybody.

    I wonder if we see the Pens do a day or two of strategic roster cap management,
    Followed by moving Crosby (possibly Hornqvist*, possibly Letang*) to LTIR,
    Followed by a possible trade acquisition of 2020 UFA J-G Pageau (OTT).

    Pens are at $79.74m currently with their 23 NHL players.
    I expect to see the higher priced guys called up,
    the lowers sent down (Lafferty $767k),
    get as close to $81.5m,
    Send Crosby's $8.7m to LTIR.
    Make a trade.

    has to have an impact to guentzel's production. just going to be a question of how much of a hit does he take

    For what it's worth, pageau is an Ottawa native, recently married an Ottawa native who is an equestrian with multiple horses. I doubt he leaves Ottawa if they offer him any contract. But he has no say in if he gets traded. But Rutherford (penguins gm) said they aren't looking to add due to injuries

    Plenty of players get moved as UFAs to be, then over the summer come right back to the team that dealt them.
