Sidney Crosby's Retirement is Slowly Approaching: What's Next For Sid?

After a record shattering career in the QMJHL, Sidney Crosby was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the first overall selection in the 2005 NHL Draft.

Since Crosby was drafted he has won countless individual awards, along with three Stanley Cup wins, and two Conn Smythe trophies as Stanley Cup finals MVP.

He has eclipsed the 1,000 point plateau, he is eight assists short of 900 career points, and he holds the honour of scoring 500 goals.

What? If anything, is there left for the 35-year-old Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia native to achieve in his NHL career.


Crosby has thrived at every level he's played, gaining international attention at the ripe age of 15.

Mario Lemieux, regarded as one of, if not the best Pittsburgh Penguin in the franchises history; mentored and even welcomed an 18-year-old Crosby into his home.

The long-time Penguins captain has always played the game the right way, and led by example endearing himself to teammates and coaches throughout his illustrious career.

So, with that said - what's left for Crosby to win, or achieve? His number 87 certainly should be retired in the Penguins rafters, upon his retirement. It can be argued, that like Mario and Wayne - his number could very well be off-limits league wide.
