Total long shot but would love to see the Canucks make a play for him...RHD Dman with offensive upside and a physical game.
Wonder what the asking price is

Nothing wrong with that. People pay to see him play, not to see him in a cast or worse, done from playing ever again. Bobby Orr's career ended too soon. Paul Kariya, the list goes on. Those players making fun of his special treatment are just jelly.
HNIC becomes the Crosby Show whenever the Pens play. The entire broadcast becomes an endless love fest, even in games where he's almost a non-factor. Do we really need to cut away to him casually skating to the bench while the play is going on? It's one thing to appreciate his talent, HNIC goes to the level of stalker.
He still gets made fun of from other players. Not because of his talent, but because he gets preferential treatment from every ref in the league...
He used to bitch and complain about every little thing, which is what I'm sure gets players' panties all bunched up. I'm sure he still complains, but he appears more willing to let his play do the talking now. Part of growing and maturing IMO.
