A very strange turn of events as confusion seems reigning around Sidney Crosby this afternoon.
Here is what we know. There was a report that the Penguins were going to release a statment on Sidney Crosby this afternoon.
From there, reports of a press conference developed.
This from Bob Pomp:

EDIT: Perhaps some clarification from Empty Netters on Twitter:
There is no press conference scheduled. We were only told an announcement would be issued.
