Sidney Crosby, the captain and star forward of the Pittsburgh Penguins, just witnessed one of the most significant trades of this year's deadline.

In return, the Penguins received forward Michael Bunting, prospects Ville Koivunen, Vasili Ponomarev, and Cruz Lucius, along with conditional first- and fifth-round picks in the upcoming draft.

This trade occurred shortly after the Penguins crushing loss to the Washington Capitals. When questioned about the trade, Crosby, visibly upset, deferred to management when asked about the message conveyed to the team.

«I don't know,» Crosby said, visibly upset. «That's probably a better question for them.»

He spoke highly of Guentzel, expressing gratitude for their time together and emphasizing Guentzel's qualities as a teammate and friend.

«He's a great teammate, a friend,» Crosby said of Guentzel. «I think he did everything he possibly could in his time here. It was just a privilege to play with him for the course of the time. Some great memories.

«It was a privilege. That's all I can say.»

Reports had suggested Crosby's dissatisfaction with the possibility of Guentzel's departure, and unfortunately, it materialized. More moves are expected as the Penguins strive to meet salary cap requirements before the deadline at 3 PM ET today.
