The Pittsburgh Penguins haven't had the start to the season they were hoping for and former general manager Jim Rutherford reportedly wasn't able to make the moves he was hoping for either.
With Rutherford gone and the Penguins kind of turning it around, there's been plenty of talk regarding big trades coming.
We've heard that this might be the final straw for the Penguins and guys like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang will be asked to be open to trades during the offseason.
We've even heard Darren Dreger say that conversation might happen in season.
While speaking to the media on Friday, Crosby was asked about the trade rumours that he's been mentioned in and if he would accept a trade to one of the teams he's been linked to.
"No, nothing's changed. ... I love playing here. This is where I'd love to play for the rest of my career,"
"I think as long as I feel good, I'd love to play as long as I can," Crosby said. "I don't have an idea. ... I focus on playing out my contract and seeing where I'm at then."
Crosby is signed through the 2024-25 season.
