A week ago, Sidney Crosby was reportedly days away from having arthroscopic surgery on his injured right wrist.

It never happened.

According to the Pittsburgh Penguins, their star captain is going to heal himself through physical therapy and happy thoughts, rather than go under the knife, as GM Jim Rutherford said:

“After seeking additional medical advice, doctors have decided not to perform surgery on Sidney Crosby’s wrist. Sid will continue treatments and be evaluated regularly while he prepares for training
camp in September.”

Crosby’s injury was labeled “terrible” by a source and no doubt contributed to the putrid one goal in 13 games performance we saw from Crosby in the postseason. (The other factors being Jack Johnson, Brandon Dubinsky, Henrik Lundqvist and a decided lack of Pascal Dupuis.)
