The Sidney Crosby watch has been on since January - and Jeremy Roenick has grown tired of it.

The NHL player-turned hockey analyst ranted against the constant updates on the NHL's premier player on Tuesday, saying he would rather watch him play than keep giving the media the same answers regarding his health.

"I love watching Sidney Crosby, but aren't you guys sick of all this by now?," he said Tuesday night on NHL Overtime on Versus.

"I'm sick and tired of listening to Sidney Crosby saying, 'nothing's new yet...nothing's new yet.' Just don't interview him anymore. I know he's the best player in the league, the best player in the world. Head shots are very, very difficult. I'm not saying he's not hurt. There's no question. I've been hit very, very hard. I understand what concussions are all about - you have to be very concerned about this. But enough."

Roenick's remarks came as a report surfaced that Crosby could be closer to returning. However, the Penguins captain never met with his doctors, saying he'll make a routine visit later this week.

The answers have done little to excite Roenick - one of the game's best sound bytes as a player and analyst.

"I want to watch him play hockey, I want to see him on the ice," Roenick explained. "I don't want the media go to him every day (asking), 'How's your head? How's your head?' The Pittsburgh Penguins are a fun team to watch. I don't want to watch Sidney Crosby telling me every day that there's nothing new to report. Enough already."
