From Sean Gordon at the Globe & Mail:
“Mentally, I feel good, the last three weeks it’s the best I’ve felt so far . . . it’s been a tough road, but retirement? No,” said Crosby, who reportedly had a brisk practice skate at the Consol Energy Centre before the news conference.
Crosby said he’s felt very close to being himself at various points in his recovery, but 90 per cent is not close enough to return.
“I’m not going to roll the dice . . . it’s important to get back to where I need to be and if not, we’ve seen it many times, you can get recurring issues,” Crosby said.
“You’ve got to listen to your body, you’ve to got listen to your doctors,” he added.
Asked by a reporter whether he’s been thinking about the possibility he may never be able to play again, Crosby smiled and said “it’s a pretty slight one.”
