Default Re: Pens Sign Crosby to 5 Year $45 Million Deal!

Mikey Prisuta had sounds clips today on DVE you can still catch them until 10:00, but Sid talks about how he wanted to not affect the cap room in the future so we could sign big contracts down the road, it was his main goal. He also had to keep the NHLPA happy as well, if he took too little of a contract salaries could be driven down for other players because the top player is only getting 8.7, yes I said ONLY haha, so going anything lower than 8.7 would affect the whole league. Sid did the right thing, got what he is worth and allowed for the Pens to be able to sign stall and malkin and anyone else we have coming up for new contracts coming in the next few years.
