"The thing for me and the organization is the bigger picture with Sidney Crosby. Making sure that he is 100 percent and ready to play when he does come back. He's not going to be pushed to come back to practice or play. I want to make sure a year from now, three years from now, five years from now that he's still the best player in the league and take the appropriate steps, and back him, and go from there."
