To Trib Total Media sports writer Joe Starkey:

Have you ever suffered a concussion? Probably not. If you had, then you would know just by looking at Sidney Crosby's eyes that he is “not right.”

I myself have suffered a concussion. You don't get better overnight and sometimes not for years. I had mine when I was 6 months old. I am now 68. I still have repercussions.

Blaming Sid for the Penguins' losses is totally unfair. Why blame anyone?

When you consider what the Pens fought through all season long with so many playing hours lost to injuries, we all should be very proud and grateful that the Pens even made the playoffs. Period.

Perhaps by the time they got to the playoffs, they were just exhausted.

I'm curious: Have you ever played hockey yourself? Probably not. So how would you ever be able to understand?

Perhaps we should let the Penguins critique how you do your job.
