Crosby make NHL History
 
Quote:

The Penguins' Sidney Crosby became the youngest player in National Hockey League history to score 200 points in a career tonight when he scored a goal in the first period of tonight's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Crosby broke the mark set by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky in the 1980-81 season. Gretzky was the only other player to score 200 points while still a teenager (19 years, 347 days). Crosby was 19 years, 207 days when he reached the milestone tonight.

Definately, when does his contract end anyway? It seems like only a while ago that we signed him...

Anyone who knows better, please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think the current agreement has NHL players becoming unrestricted FAs at 27 years old or after seven years in the NHL.

(If their first contract ends before that, they are a restricted free agent)

Thank you for clearing that up

If you are referring to Mario Lemieux, I'd have to agree with you Joey, but if you are referring to Gretzky, I believe Sid will be twice the player that Gretzy was.

P.S. When did you ever see Gretzky go into a corner and battle it out with several guys for a puck? :wink02:
