Sidney Crosby’s concussion makes us take a closer look

  1. It seems obvious to me that Steckel made effort to avoid the hit on Crosby and was only persuing the puck. Crosby needs to admit that it was his own error on the ice that has lead to his missing games.

    • take a close look at the replay, Steckel was out to do damage in a sneaky fashion.

    • Here is the take on the Steckel hit if it is the game that was played in-doors as this is the hit I am refering to. Let’s say Steckel is running down the side of a road and he notices a car coming towards him with the car partically on the shoulder. I am sure you have noticed many times your self that most people out for a walk or jog along the shoulder of a roadway do tend to hug the ditch side wheather a vehicle is coming or not. Now, if you were walking along a roadway for a stroll or jog and you had clear vision of a vehicle coming towards you and pulling on to the shoulder I am sure your natural instincts would prepare you to give room for the vehicle, right or wrong.? So let’s cut the crap abvout this hit, reguardless who Steckel hit it should have been avoided and secondly it was an illegal hit and I am saying it was a deliberate head shot. Put Steckel under hypnosis and I am sure what you have just read is true to the word.

  7. The news always and only shows the side view of "the hit". The behind the net video shows Crosby's neglect on the ice. Anyone who plays hockey knows to keep your head up after you pass the puck and he did not do that! You can yak all you want about Steckel but there comes a time the receiver of a hit has to admit he was not paying close enough attention. To busy trying to admire his own pass!
