Yes, another Sidney Crosby piece. Sorry. Nick Kypreos, who was forced to retire from hockey due to a concussion, has posted an opinion piece on Sidney Crosby's future. It covers many points, including what could be coming up in contract talks between Crosby and the Penguins. In the piece he stresses that Sidney Crosby's season should be over. Kypreos' article is going to get a lot of attention and it will likely be attacked by all sides, but he makes several good points. The piece focuses on the upcoming contract talks between Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The two sides can begin negotiating a new contract on July 1, 2012. Recently Ray Shero said that he wants Crosby to be a "Penguin for life" and we believe that's true.

The Sidney Crosby concussion vs. the economics of the NHL

Yahoo! Sports NHL columnist Nick Cotsonika marked a dubious anniversary on Thursday: One year to the day that Sidney Crosby was hit from behind by Victor Hedman. The ensuing concussion recovery kept the Pittsburgh Penguins captain out through the end of last season until Nov. 21 of this season. Crosby returned with a 4-point night.

The All-Star Game is Still a Joke... But Does Anyone Care?

NHLPA Rightful in “Prolonging” Realignment

By Steve Palumbo (@westcoastdevfan) As it was explained to me minutes before I started typing up this piece (by no other than our own Todd Cordell): Contrary to a misguided belief that the NHLPA flat out rejected the league’s new realignment plan and playoff format for the 2012-2013 NHL season, the NHL Board of Governors actually imposed a deadline for the NHLPA to submit a decision...
