Will Sidney Crosby leave Pens for Canadiens in 2013

Sidney Crosby has often stated that his favorite team growing up was the Montreal Canadiens. By 2013, the salary cap will approx. be $65 million (with the maximum allowable amount for one player at 20%) if revenues grow at the same pace as the last couple years and assuming the next collective bargaining agreement gives players the same percentage of total revenue. Given this, Crosby will be able to obtain a contract that will pay him $12+ million per season.

Since Crosby has achieved the goal of bringing the Stanley Cup to Pittsburgh, will he set his sights on a new destination like Montreal when he becomes a free agent in 2013. He would play for his favorite childhood team and be in a larger market which would allow him to make more money.
