Crosby agrees to 12 year extension, one-year deal
Crosby’s agent, Rusty Cox, told ESPN.com’s Bob Nightengale that the two sides were working on a deal that would have seen Crosby serve as Pittsburgh’s permanent GM for at least the 2017-18 season. The team had been interested in the services of a third team’s GM.
“It’s not too difficult to imagine that after this season, I think a trade could get done,” Cox told Ni바카라사이트ghtengale. “For me personally, it was a no-brainer for me because I think we can have a strong Stanley Cup run with C바카라rosby next year. He’s one of the바카라사이트 best ever. For us personally to remain with him means we can get into the playoffs…. There’s a lot that has to happen here.”
Crosby will receive about $5.8 million a season, and he’ll earn an additional $2.8 million per season from his two year, two-way contract (including $3.3 million next season) and the $10 million per season on his deal, according to ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun.
Crosby’s cap hit and salary cap holds now total $71.3 million, according to capgeek.com. It appears that he’s a lock to sign a multi-year extension, which could be one of the few things to keep him from heading elsewhere to make the playoffs and push for a top-four finish next season.
