Crosby To Skip NHL All-Star Game

This weekend in Montreal in order to rest his knee that recently forced him to miss a game against Anaheim, though he did subsequently play in games against the Rangers and Hurricanes.  The NHL cannot be thrilled, as he is the face of a league that has been struggling to gain traction in the US national consciousness the past decade or so.  For that reason he probably should’ve gone ahead and played as, like I said above, the knee was okay enough to let him play the last two games for the Penguins.  However, it is undeniably best for the Pens that he not play, but rather use this week off to get fully healed, or try to, so he can be an asset for the team the last 2.5 months of the season.  Given their recent slump, they will have to do some work in order to make the playoffs, work that would get much harder if they don’t have #87, or don’t have him firing on all cylinders.
