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

Not a Pens fan myself (don't watch hockey), but I couldn't be happier for the Penguins, the city, the fans, and especially Sid.

Glad to see that another Pittsburgh team will enjoy lasting success.

And of course, we have the predictable parade of idiots who think we overpaid and screwed ourselves in the future when it comes time to pay Malkin, Staal and Fleury, as well as saying that his salary "really isn't a discount" and therefore he isn't really all that classy. They also used the familar "he's still too young and needs to mature before he can earn that kind of money." I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty sure Ray Shero and the Pens considered every possible scenario, even the possibility of the salary cap either staying the same or dropping in the near future (which is the latest mantra from said idiots), before giving Sid the money THAT HE HAS EARNED AND DESERVES. So I trust what they are doing and that they won't have too much trouble keeping the core together. Besides, the last time I checked, we didn't move to New York and change our colors to red, white and blue.

I'm out of my element here in the hockey thread, but I thought I heard that the contract was structured to leave room to sign the other young stars...

It was - I've heard it's slightly front-loaded so that when Malkin and Staal are due to get big contracts in 2009, his salary and cap hit is less. But of course, most of these idiots (many of them root for that team in red, white and blue or that other team in Eastern PA that wears prison orange and black), haven't realized that.

at prison orange and black... i use to be a huge lindros fan. in fact i paid 100.00 per ticket to see him play when they played the hurricanes. unfortunely he got a concussion like two or three games before and didnt play... man what a waste that was

They're clueless jag offs?

If anyone in the NHL should get the maxium salary allowed it should be Sid. The max is a little over $10 million. His contract has a yearly cap value of $8.7 million, so yes it is a discount!

$8.7 for number 87 who was born on 8/7/87 hmmmm..is that a coincidence?

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.
