Well in case you forgot, Rossi did suggest in 2009 we trade Crosby:

On Sunday night, Rob Rossi, Penguins beat writer for the Tribune-Review, appeared on a weekly Pittsburgh talk show and suggested the team would be wise to put Sidney Crosby on the trade block this offseason. I guess this is what happens when you go from being two wins away from hoisting the Stanley Cup to being the No. 10 team in the Eastern Conference in a matter of one season.

To be fair, Rossi didn't come out and say the Penguins were in a position where they would be forced to trade Crosby, but that it would be wise to put him on the market and make it known they were listening to offers. That's slightly different from Miller's this must happen or the team will never win again angle.

That doesn't make it better.

To support his stance, Rossi drew a comparison to the June 30, 1992 trade that sent Eric Lindros (whom was "the next one" before Crosby was "the next one") from the Quebec Nordiques to the Philadelphia Flyers
