If it's flyable is a bonus and they should at least have some weaponry to take out smaller buildings and light vehicles.

So...

Toronto receives:
Crosby

Pittsburgh receives:

Two six story tall giant robots, one mannable and one AI experiment that could potentially go hay-wire, so that the mannable one has to defeat the AI version. They should have flying capabilities for at least 15 minutes before refueling and lighter armament to take out smaller buildings and light vehicles.

Clausule: Does Crosby win a Hart, Toronto must provide a mountable laser cannon (they don't have to have that much fire power, they are mostly for showing off, but they should at least annoy people if you direct the laser beam through peoples' bedroom window while they're sleeping) for both giant robots, one if the battle between them has already taken place and there has been a winner.

If the battle has been taking place and there is no giant robot corpse for proof and show, it should be assumed the defeated robot has survived the battle and fled. It should also be assumed the defeated robot is on a training montage in a rural area. A second cannon should in this case also be delivered although there has been a victor, to be stored in a secure building with at least a cool sounding alarm, two watch dogs and an unspecified security guard. This could create a cool break in for the defeated robot to steal the laser and a possible ambush opportunity for the previously victorious robot to seal the deal.

Clausule: If the AI robot wins, Toronto should send a superhero taskforce of at least three (each one with at least on superpower considered: "impressive" by the majority of a non-disclosed jury of five), which should save Pittsburgh from the possible angry AI robot. No deliberate flaws can have been made in the robot production in Toronto to make the fight easier. The robot can have one well protected weakness, but the heroes can under no cirumstances know about the weakness beforehand.

Clausule:
If Crosby scores more than 10 points in a season, Toronto has to change their goalsong into any of the following three. It is fine to alternate between the three, in fact it is encouraged:

Pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-p a-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-p a-ooma-mow-mow, papa-ooma-mow-mow!

They may have considered that trade, if it wasn't for the signature "Kopecky Sucks".

Almost (and I say almost because I just remembered the guy who proposed Crosby and a 2nd for Phaneuf) all of these trades are waaaay overpaying for Crosby in a purely hockey sense. However, in some markets, and Pitt is a prime example, the value of Crosby is exponentially greater than his on-ice production. I can see a market like LA, Chicago, Anaheim, etc. overpaying for him, but never someone like MTL, Toronto, NY, and actually almost every Canadian team.

It's all a moot point though because Crosby's going nowhere for at least a decade.

First of all, too bad.

Second of all, let's see if this one sounds as stupid:
Pitts needs an elite winger, but they want to keep their elite centers so they offer Washington: Jordan Staal, MAF, Luca Caputi, 2 1sts for Ovechkin. You can't keep your best player if you're trying to get the best player in the world. Add all the names you want and all the draft picks in the world. Sorry.

He used that "too much time" to bring laughter to many of us, you used your obvious abundance of time to be an ass, which was the dumb post exactly?

The only package I could see if Crosby demanded a trade to a bigger market, maybe he's got a chick in LA, or just wants to go there and hang with Kobe.

Kopitar, Brown, Doughty.

In reality would either team do it? Meh.

From a Kings fan POV I wouldn't trade anything for Crosby. We are very young and in full rebuild mode. Why would we give up our young stars and future superstar players for 1 player?

Obviously Crosby is a franchise player but we honestly don't need him for what it would take to land him.

Also I don't think most teams will give up so much for him because why do that for one player when in return you will just have tons of more holes to fill because you gave up your team for 1 player.

He started and will retire a Penguine like Mario.
