I think it dawned on him that he won't be around to watch Crosby blossom into the best player in the NHL.

Did you ever see the documentary on the "Miracle"? CP fought back tears when he said,"Those guys deserved that medal."


Crosby deserved those 100 points.

I am one of the guys that get on CP's case because of the bonehead moves he has made within the last 6 or 7 years. This isnt to say that I don't like the man, reading that article made me feel kinda sad. CP was a huge part of hockey in Pittsburgh.

I still think its time for CP to move on, but I don't think any of us ever doubted that he didnt try to do his best to make this hockey club the best he could. I respect that.

I agree. It isn't like he is a bad guy who was deliberately trying to sabotage the franchise. The moves he made this summer made sense but I can't help but wonder what a younger, more motivated GM with something to prove would have done to get Kovalev and Kariya here.

From the bottom of the article: "Imagine what it'll be like if this team ever starts winning."

Where were you in the early 90s? Like that but even better!

Chances are Kovy would have had a better season in black and gold, but Kovy chose to be in Montreal. Given that Palffy, the head-to-head choice that replaced the spot Kovy might have taken, retired midway though with 11 goals, it seems that either was about a wash. And the Pens don't have to pay the rest of Palffy's salary. I consider them better in the long run for that.

Awesome article. I will miss CP as a person. You know that his heart is poured into this club. Look at the Lemieux/Cancer press conference and such. The man's heart strings are definately attached to the Pittsburgh Penguins' franchise. He has had a hall of fame hockey career, and has been a cornerstone to this team for so many years.

That being said, I do believe it is time for him to go. Whether it is retirement, a smaller job with the franchise, or GM somewhere else, this is a new era for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and we can't hang on to the things of old.

CP was horrible, and those "heart strings" were part of the problem.
