    According to this sportsnet.ca link:
    http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/article.jsp?content=20050307_180820_5024

    Reebok will annouce on Tuesday a 5 year deal with Sidney Crosby
    (with an option for a 6th year) to wear the Reebok logo.
    Apparently this deal will be the largest ever given to a hockey player...even if you include the likes of Lemieux and Gretzky at their top form.

    I hope this deal doesn't go over his head considering he hasn't even played an NHL game yet.
    Looking forward to see how his NHL career pans out! Too bad the odds of him playing for his favorite team are about NIL (The Habs)...wherever he ends up he should make that team more interesting offensively.
    It should be interesting to see how the NHL draft is figured out should there be a deal sometime this summer...

    I never mentioned Crosby becoming a NHL replacement player. I was thinking specifically of the WHA.

    Worse comes to worse, Crosby spends another year in the QMJHL. He'd have the option of entering the NHL on his own timetable.
