Thumbs up Pens Sign Crosby to 5 Year $45 Million Deal!

You've definitely earned it, Sid. Congratulations!

Pens sign Crosby for $45 million over five years

By Rob Rossi
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, July 10, 2007

The Kid became a rich man today.

Sidney Crosby and the Penguins agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension worth $45 million, a team official confirmed early this morning.

The extension will go into effect after his entry-level deal expires following this season, meaning Crosby will play in Pittsburgh for at least the next six seasons. It also buys out the first year of Crosby's unrestricted free-agent eligibility.

Crosby will become an unrestricted free agent following the 2012-13 season.

What an offseason so far. Shero signs Sid and Whitney long term. Grabs two solid FA's and brings back a backup goalie who he regretted losing in the first place. Very nice. Now, let's look to Therrien's contract.

Wow, that is good news. Looks like the Pens aren't going to wait around to start spending $ from the new arena deal.
