"Should I poke him?" -Marty Reasoner

The title and photo above pretty much sum up the last two years for Sidney Crosby better than I can by giving an elongated explanation of how brutal it probably is to have your head get consistently bashed and split open. Sidney Crosby experiences this only on days that end in ‘y’ it seems.

Below is the latest installment of the Sidney Crosby head injury saga as he takes a puck squarely off the face courtesy of Dylan Reese. Ironically enough it’s too bad Reese didn’t get the puck up higher – then Crosby’s visor could have been put to some good use as opposed to the puck hitting Crosby in the nose (like it did) or in the mouth.


Is it safe to say Sid should probably just wear a Stay Puft suit from now on?
