No Crosby At Sprint Center? Yeah, Probably...

If you have followed any of the Big XII/ Texas A&M/ SEC rumors, then you know rumors are just rumors.  Well, here is one from the NHL.  Via Puck Daddy via Josh Rimer (producer for XM NHL Home Ice apparently), Sidney Crosby may not be ready to go by the start of the season.  Which, also means he won't be able to go for the exhibition game at the Sprint Center against the Los Angeles Kings on September 27th.  Will this affect ticket sales?  Probably, as people like NHL21's Paul McGannon were banking on Crosby being there and Kansas Citians basking in his glory (this happened, but KC Star archives suck, so no link).  Penguins coach Dan Bylsma will have an update on Monday, but either way, it does not appear that Sid will be good to go for KC.  Maybe that's a cynical point of view, but let's look at history.  The past two exhibition games have featured no Anze Kopitar, no John Taveras, and I'm pretty sure Tkachuk or Kariya missed out.  So, no Crosby makes sense, but now he may have a more severe excuse.
