08:33 AM ET 10.09 | When it comes to the lockout, Sidney Crosby is like most NHL fans and players these days -- he'd like it to end in a hurry. [Crosby] is at least considering the idea of playing in Europe until labor peace returns to the NHL. ... For Crosby, though, it could be more challenging than many might expect because of the cost of insurance, an expense European teams have been picking up for most of the NHL players they've added. Crosby's agent, Pat Brisson, told a Canadian radio station recently that insuring a significant amount (though not all) of Crosby's future earnings -- he is scheduled to be paid $7.5 million in 2012-13 before a 12-year, $104.4 million deal kicks in -- could cost between $200,000 and $400,000 per month.

You're right It's tough to decide. I'm torn. Maybe Sweet Sid? With a hug from Malkin? So many choices.

Given his recent injury history, he should be doing as little physical contact activity as possible. Dome only.*awaits flag*

Danny apparently referencing tacos and how long things are is how you get flagged today

Throw in a Danny "Dimes" and you can probably get a splitten image.

Hey, I used to have one of those hot wheels once, in fact.
