Mark Madden dropped a semi-shocker on his blog today. [ Supergenius ]
According to him the Penguins organization is divided:
“Penguins hockey ops wants Crosby to play again if reasonable opportunity beckons. The business side of the operation is leaning toward concluding that bringing Crosby back this campaign would constitute risk beyond potential reward. Protect the long-term investment at the expense of the current season.”
Not a surprise, and it makes sense because everyone you talk to feels the same way. Nonetheless not easy to read.
Madden will also have ESPN’s Scott Burnside on his show today. Not sure what time, check the comment section for that. Wonder if Madden will lower the boom?
