That is too much to give up for a pending UFA with no assurances that he will resign in Pittsburgh.
Come on now. A winger would salivate at the very notion of playing with Crosby. He's not going to refuse playing in Pittsburgh with Crosby if they were willing to pay him a good salary and the fact that the team is going to be a perennial contender for a good while, it's all the more enticing. You were willing to fork out $50m over 7 years for Hossa, right (or was it 5 years $35m)? I know it'd be a little tough to come up with that kind of money now with impending extensions of Malkin, Letang, Orpik, Niskanen, etc., but IF they could wheel and deal and clear space (which they probably will have to do), they can easily entice him for a 7 year term.
