Today, reports have emerged providing a major update on contract talks between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Sidney Crosby, painting a worrying picture for the future.

This situation is worrying for Penguins fans, especially considering a similar situation occurred with Tampa Bay's captain Steven Stamkos last year. Stamkos ended up signing a long-term contract with the Nashville Predators.
"STEVEN STAMKOS HAS SIGNED WITH THE NASHVILLE PREDATORS: FOUR YEARS, $8M AAV FOR STAMMER TIME."
While the Stamkos situation is an anomaly, it raises the possibility that Sidney Crosby could find a new home if contract talks don't improve.
