    We could have before or after parties at my house too. I'm about 5 minutes away from there. We could park here and pile into a few larger vehicles and hit the arena! Where do you live Matt? I'm on 2nd and Rainbow. A few minutes from Scott and Tara.

    Penguins formally announce Crosby signing

    By JOE MANDAK, Associated Press Writer
    September 9, 2005
    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins made it official Friday, signing No. 1 draft pick Sidney Crosby to an $850,000 contract with performance bonuses that could double his salary.

    Crosby has been touted as potentially the league's greatest player since the Penguins' own Mario Lemieux. The rookie also figures to be the new lifeblood of a small-market franchise Lemieux has already resuscitated several times as a player and owner.

    The amount of Crosby's contract is a formality under the NHL's new collective bargaining agreement limiting first-year players to $850,000 in salary and $850,000 in bonuses. Crosby could earn even more money, but would have to win the rookie of the year, the Hart Trophy as the league's MVP or be the league's scoring leader to gain additional bonuses from the Penguins and the league.

    The Penguins open training camp Tuesday with a week's worth of practice before moving camp to the arena of their minor-league affiliate in Wilkes-Barre.

    Crosby will make his NHL debut Oct. 5 -- Lemieux's 40th birthday -- at New Jersey.
