    Report: Sidney Crosby to get 10-year, $90-million extension from Penguins - CBSSports.com

    The Kid is SUPREMELY talented but this is an EXTREMELY risky move to make.

    I wonder if there is an out after a certain amount of years for injuries or whatever.

    The Canucks signed Luongo to a 12-year deal. What a disaster that's turning out to be.

    Another case of a sports team refusing to acknowledge the big elephant in the room...........MULTIPLE CONCUSSIONS, and their lifelong after-effects.

    How can a sports franchise tell their top player "We know you've had multiple concussions, but we'll pay you lots of money to keep playing. However, if your brain ends up looking like a bowl of scrambled eggs, we're going to cancel your contract. Sign here please."

    Crosby is on the road to becoming a future Dave Duerson or Junior Seau. He should retire NOW. What a shame.
