Hockey fans have been on Sidney Crosby watch for months now; rumor has it the date 11/11/11 has the potential to be extra magical for supporters in Pittsburgh and hockey fans in general. That's when Sidney Crosby could play his first game for the Pittsburgh Penguins since Jan. 5. How do you see Crosby faring in his return? I think hockey pool managers should have this date circled on the calendar. Re-activating Sidney Crosby should be very rewarding. I commend the Pittsburgh Penguins for taking this amount of time with Sid. Because of it he should be able to produce at a high level with no ill effects.It helps that Pittsburgh is first in the East, currently 8-3-2. This means Crosby has no pressure on him to make up points they may have lost without him in the lineup. He can take as much time as he needs to find his game.
