Sidney Crosby injury update

The all too memorable and nauseating sight from last season...

As of right now here is your Sidney Crosby injury update: there is no update.  At least, that's the case in terms of what the injury is and how long he might be out of the lineup.

The Penguins' website has him in the starting lineup for tonight's game against the Blues, although they do state he is listed as day-today.  I will admit, as big a Penguins fan as I may be (obviously), this line struck me as slightly pompous, if not a bit reminiscent of second grade playground banter:

If he can’t play, then the Penguins will have to overcome losing the best player in the world.

Hey, it got a chuckle out of me.

Keep checking back today on Sid's status.  When I get some info I'll be sure to post it.  As of right now, I don't think it's a stretch to assume Sid won't be playing tonight.  Even if he is slightly injured, perhaps even just dinged up, I'd rather see him sit out, heal up and prep for the team's return to home ice.  Whats your take?
