A 1025% Raise for Crosby

According to various sites, Sidney Crosby has been signed to a five-year extension worth somewhere in the $43 million range which breaks down to about $8.7 million per year. Crosby, who chose not to ask for the maximum salary allowed by the CBA, will play on the last year of his entry level contract this coming season and make $850,000 in base salary. Not a bad raise or pay day for a soon-to-be 20 year old kid. However, unlike many of the free agent contracts, this pay raise is well deserved.
