You'd have to pay me more than 9 mil a year...

... to wear a skating penguin on my chest. Maybe for that much money Sid can find a decent night light so he doesnt have to keep sleeping at Uncle Mario's place.

PITTSBURGH -- The Penguins signed Sidney Crosby to a five-year contract extension worth about $45 million that will keep him in Pittsburgh through the 2012-13 season.

Crosby, who turns 20 next month, became the NHL's youngest MVP since Wayne Gretzky when he was awarded the Hart Trophy last month. The three-year contract Crosby signed as a rookie lasts through the coming season. The extension keeps him under contract for the next six seasons.
In other news, the Capitals Development camp opened today. First scrimmage is Wed. from 4:30-6:00pm and they continue through Saturday.

NOTE: The Capitals signed RW Joe Motzko to a two-year contract today. Motzko played for the Ducks last season after being traded there in January. Sweet trade.

Ally and Noyb: thanks, I enjoy snarky. And it is a lot of money but not breaking the bank. Kinda makes me like Sid (a tiny tiny bit) because he could have gotten a lot more out of the Pens and screwed them Cap-wise.

Rage: Good point. There have been rumors that this summer GMGM is gonna try to lock Ovie up for the foreseeable future.

On Joe Motzko, Maybe he is meant for Hershey?

Ally, that's what Tarik said.

Actually, players just report today and will hit the ice tomorrow. So the first scrimmage is Wednesday at 4:30.

Motzko. The kid who took a penalty in Game 4 (I think) with about 5 minutes left and everyone said, "Who's Motzko??"
