Sidney Crosby Practicing, But Still No Contact

So in terms of Pittsburgh Penguins training camp, what do you want first, the good news or the bad news? I'll pick. The good news is that Sidney Crosby is still on the ice practicing with his squad. The bad news is that he is still wearing that dreaded white helmet, according to Rob Rossi.

In case you haven't been following Training Camp this year, that means that the other guys on the ice, the ones wearing black helmets, are not allowed to make contact with Crosby. So he's back and he's skating, but he isn't really playing hockey yet (depending on the semantic question of whether hockey without hard contact counts as "real hockey"). In other words, nothing has really changed about Crosby's status, although the "white helmet" thing is making the rounds on Twitter today.
