Crosby signs 12-Year, $104.4 Million Contract Extension (8.7 per)

Darren Dreger‏@DarrenDreger

Expect the Penguins to announce Sidney Crosby's contract extension on Sunday. Over $100 million dollars with an AAV of close to $9 mil per

I would be so happy. Signing him for the rest of his career would be the best thing ever.

I also think this deserves it's own thread as we will be talking about it a lot.

Yep. So that would be what...12 years? At least?

Awesome.

EDIT: Also shows me that Shero is confident in Sid's health moving forward. Which is a great thing.

YES! YES! YES!

Cap hit = Perfect
Sid here forever = Perfect

With the expectation that Geno would follow suit, let there be no doubt that Ray Shero's going shopping on Sunday, and he's not looking for blue light specials.

Absolutely great deal for Pens. If it's around 9 mil per, well, let's just pass the savings onto Parise per Sid's wishes. Will be a very exciting come noon Sunday.

I thought he was going to test free agency to sign with the Canadiens, his favorite childhood team.

My thoughts exactly. If we end up getting Suter and Parise, the only possible cap casualty would be Letang. But with the cap likely continuing to go up or staying the same(depending on the outcome of the CBA), that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Yeah, but Dreger said close to 9 . . .

12 years, 108.7M = 9.05M a year
11 years, 98.7M = 8.97M a year

Yeah, but doesn't this mean there's no way the Pens could afford both Parise and Suter?
