Player Agent @ Crosby Announcement.
“This is NOT a retirement announcement”
Some rabid speculators out there have pegged this up-coming media address as an impending retirement announcement from current league super star Sidney Crosby…an un-named player agent has told me, point blank, this is BS speculation.
The agent, not directly affiliated with Crosby himself, tells me that Crosby will announce a delayed start to the 2011/12 season, with his sights set on a mid to late November return, but with no specific timeline identified.
It is also believed that Crosby, and his medical team are taking an extremely cautious approach to his return to the game, and that, apart from some relatively minor set-backs, his progress has been positive.
Time will tell how accurate these statements are.
