Some of the league's greatest dynasties have been dismantled over the last few years; the Chicago Blackhawks were torn to pieces, the Washington Capitals are getting there, and the Pittsburgh Penguins are about to go through the blender.

A report earlier today suggested that the great Sid the Kid wanted to do the right thing by the Pens and had asked Dubas for a chance to compete for a Stanley Cup. According to the report, Crosby would be open to the idea of playing for three teams, the Avalanche, the Maple Leafs and the Canucks:
Crosby rumours are starting to heat up more than expected; nothing official and plenty of moving parts to get things in motion, but talks are 🔥 #Avalanche #Canucks #Leafs

Sid is listening, and he wants to do the right thing for the Penguins franchise and also compete for the Cup

The strong bond between Crosby and the Canucks' current management Patrik Allvin, Jim Rutherford and Rick Tocchet, most likely plays a vital role in this one.
According to a good source, he gave three teams he'd be ok with IF they approached him about a trade now or in the offseason #Leafs #Avalanche on the list.. nobody said the Leafs would acquire him today or tomorrow, but they're on his list IF they wanted to get serious.

Despite being 36, Crosby remains one of the league's best players. Thus far, Crosby has managed 32 goals and 63 points over 60 games this year in Pittsburgh. He excels at both ends of the ice, excels on the Faceoff dot, is one of the game's best leaders, and has multiple solo awards and 3 Stanley Cups under his belt.
It's fair to say that whenever Crosby ends up being traded, if he does get traded, the price will be massive, and he'll get to pick his destination. Do you think the Canucks should partake in those talks?
