Switzerland Likely Crosby’s Overseas Destination

Sid the Kid will likely choose the Swiss Alps over Moscow.

Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby is going to wait to see how talks for a collective bargaining agreement go in the next week, but he likely won’t accept a deal to play in Russia if he does decide to suit up anywhere this season.

While the big money is in Russia and teams there would have no problem paying the outrageous insurance costs, sources say he’d likely be targeted in the KHL and the travel conditions are less than ideal with long road trips.

Given Crosby’s injury history with post-concussion syndrome, Russia may not be worth the risk.
