Should Crosby’s Press Conference Have Waited?
That seems to be the question a lot of people in social media are asking themselves today after learning of the tragedy in the hockey world today.
For those of you are still unaware, KHL team Lokomotiv were on a plane that crashed shortly after taking off today in Russia.
Original reports stated that 42 of 44 passengers died in the crash with Lokomotiv’s Aleksandr Galimov being one of two survivors. It was later reported that he sustained burns on 80% of his body.
I feel that yes, given the morning’s events the press conference should have waited.
After all, it’s not like we learned anything new from this press conference.
Sidney Crosby & his doctor stated the situation as follows; Crosby sustained a vestibular concussion, he has seen specialists, that he is expected to do a full recovery and that he will most likely return this year but there is no definite timeline.
This is all information that we were all aware of already. The only new information is positive (depending on how you feel about Sid the Kid) that being that he will not retire.
For some reason I always felt that Crosby always got to much media attention. no matter how skilled he is. Today’s press conference confirmed that for me. How can you justify one man’s concussion recovery out weighing the situation in Russia? I can’t think of any good reason.
But that’s just my opinion, what do you think?
