• Bourne on Sidney Crosby’s return: “Obviously in the big picture you want your best players playing, it’s just that timing. Right before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs I don’t want any of my guys to exhale and think 'Phew, our guy' is back, even one tiny iota. Also, you’re rushing a guy back from an injury that could very well be re-injured if he gets bumped in the jaw with any force again, and with your sights set on the Cup – not a round one victory – you’d think that’d matter. PLUS, you’ve got the sideshow of Sidney Crosby coming back and all the national media annoyance that garners. PLUS you’ve got a guy coming back out of game shape, so you’re trying to give him minimal minutes so as not to kill him (10 mins at most I’m guessing), so you’re shuffling lines and messing with people’s comfort and routines.” [Backhand Shelf]
