Sidney Crosby To Return To Working Out

Concussion specialist Michael Collins has cleared Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby to begin working out off the ice. There was some consternation among Penguins fans this offseason when it was revealed that the Penguins hadn't yet told Crosby he could start working out, but it turned out the only reason for that was that he had been on vacation. This should put to rest any lingering fears from that misunderstanding. Beyond that, I suppose this is a good sign, although it doesn't really tell us much, since Crosby's schedule doesn't call for him to return to the ice for another month or two anyway. If he does that on schedule, then we'll know we're getting somewhere.
