Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
“I don’t think ‘frustrating’ even describes it,” Crosby told Pittsburgh reporters on Monday – and he has that right.
Frustrating isn’t the word for it, because after scoring 12 points in eight games since he returned from a concussion that knocked him out of the lineup for 61 games and nearly 11 months, the headaches are back. For that reason, you can dismiss Crosby’s suggestion that he’s “way better off than I was 10 months ago.”
The reason: he also admitted that while he has been doing light workouts, he will have to go through a similar progression – skating, practising and practising with contact before he is cleared to return to the lineup.
In other words: everything he had to do when he was at first diagnosed with a “mild” concussion last season.
