TSN is reporting that the Pens have signed Sid The Kid to a 5 year $43.5m contract. The contract will begin after this season and will keep Crosby in Pittsburgh through the 2012-13 season. Looks like the Oiler$ will have to find a new strategy for next summer!
Like I said in Part II of my ongoing analysis of the Gomez/Drury signings, I don't expect too many of these types of players to hit the open market. The only exception is for players who want to change locations.
