Crosby’s New Deal

Posted: June 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

It was officially announced today that Sidney Crosby has recieved a contract extension of 12 years for $104.4 million, roughly $8.7 million a year.

This should not really come as a surprise to any Pittsburgh fans as he is the face of the franchise and concussions or not, he will not be going anywhere. This does have some meaning though, the timing of this was not random as top notch free agents like Ryan Suter or Zach Parise now know that Pittsburgh is interested in them and want all cap issues resolved so they can go after them. If I were a Pittsburgh fan I would be ready for July 1st. Remember to check back here for all updates on free agency or trades all summer long!
