Ken Dryden's Call to Action on Head Shots

It was an extraordinary press conference. Four people were at the media table 
in a spare setting at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center: Penguins general 
manager Ray Shero, concussion specialist Michael Collins, chiropractor Ted 
Carrick and Sidney Crosby. They were serious and straightforward. Through 
nearly 45 intense minutes, they offered almost no smoke or spin.

.

The medical experts, not the GM or the hockey player, spoke first.

.

Dr. Collins, head of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center's Sports 
Medicine Concussion Program, laid out the events surrounding the injury, Mr. 
Crosby's resulting symptoms, the diagnosis, the treatment and the ups and downs 
of his recovery since January. He was patient and thorough. He spoke as if he 
knew his audience was intent on hearing what he said and, despite his 
occasional medical jargon, would understand him in all the ways that mattered.

.

With a few lapses, Dr. Carrick, a chiropractor and founder of the Carrick 
Institute for Graduate Studies in Florida, did the same.

.

Beyond the details, the specialists needed to convey that they were competent, 
professional and responsible  that Mr. Crosby is in good hands.

.

At times, they talked about Mr. Crosby's brain as if he wasn't there himself. 
Yet Mr. Crosby seemed undistracted. Respectful, he watched and listened as if 
the experts were only his trusted advisers. He was still the captain of his own 
ship.

.

When it was his turn to speak, Mr. Crosby was composed and informative, not 
seeming to hold anything back. He spoke of how he felt at each stage after his 
injury. At first, he had felt himself in a fog, he said, as if he was living 
one step removed from his own life, a spectator to it. Objects around him 
weren't quite where he knew them to be; once, Dr. Collins related, Mr. Crosby, 
feeling he was falling, found his body reacting when he wasn't falling at all. 
Even the flickering images on a TV screen moved too fast for him, making him 
dizzy  this in someone who had always seen everything so acutely, who at only 
24 had seemed somehow to figure out hockey and life. Now, his board had been 
scrambled. Normal life, his medical people said, would return when, at full 
exertion, his headaches stayed away. Normal life as Sidney Crosby would return 
when everything went back into its proper orientation and, when confident of 
that, he could resume his Crosby-like creating, scrambling the board for 
everyone else instead.

.

The medical experts and Mr. Crosby said no one could predict when that would 
occur. Given where he had been and where he was now in his recovery, and pushed 
by the media's questions and by their own professional and human hopefulness, 
they put science to one side and declared that it would happen. Asked if he had 
played his last game, Mr. Crosby replied without bravado, I wouldn't bet on 
that.

.

Before the press conference, it was clear; after, it is even clearer. The 
National Hockey League season that begins next week  whether Mr. Crosby plays 
at all, or how well  will be about Mr. Crosby.

.

This is a difficult time for the NHL, for its commissioner, Gary Bettman, and 
for hockey. It's no less difficult for the National Football League, for its 
commissioner, Roger Goodell, for the U.S. National Collegiate Athletic 
Association, and for football.

.

Head injuries have become an overwhelming fact of life in sports. The immensity 
of the number, the prominence of the names, the life-altering impact on their 
lives and, more disturbing, if that's possible, the now sheer routineness of 
their occurrence. The hit on Mr. Crosby didn't seem like much. If it hadn't 
been him, the clip of the incident would never have made the highlight reel.

.

But if so much can happen out of so little, where is all this going?
