Sidney Crosby is healthy and wants to play hockey. Due to the lockout, he can't in North America and is going to look at Europe. A look at the leagues he might land in.
Like he has for most of the past two full years, Sidney Crosby has a problem. He isnít playing hockey.
Problem is, now he is ready to, but he is locked out of a league wrestling with its player union over how to divide their revenues.
The option to sign in Europe has been a complicated one, as Crosby would need insurance on the $112 million contract he signed this past summer with the Penguins, and for a guy with a very checkered injury history, thatís not going to be a cheap matter.
