If a player is well known in Canada, how does that expand the game? This game needs to grow. I don't want to see him in Columbus and such as the next guy, but let's be serious.

If he ends up in Toronto or any other city by some means, so be it. I just feel this game needs a kick in the butt, to jumpstart itself, however that may be. And I personally don't feel Sidney Crosby in Toronto will do that.

Where should he end up? I don't know. I'm just an ignorant fan. All I'm saying is, I hope he ends up in a place where it'll help the health of the sport.
I am not a Crosby Fan, I just do not see him holding up to the NHL pounding .. he is only 5'10" but plays bigger and even in the Q he takes a beating ..

If Toronto got him via the lottery .. I would offer him to the Highest Bidder and the return would be greater then Crosby himself ..

If Toronto could parlay him into a guaranteed player say Dany Heatley for example .. or a package of young players/ picks ..

Crosby to Chicago for Tuomo Ruutu, Mark Bell, Cam Barker .. What you think??
