Unusual Terms in Crosby's Upcoming Contract

As reported by Penguins Hockey Now, Crosby's next contract is expected to feature the number 87 in some form.
Whether he'll earn $87 per hour, 87 cents per second, secure a deal with a bonus of $87, or agree to an 8.7M AAV contract remains to be seen. One thing's for sure: the number 87 will be part of the contract in some way.
"While precisely how many seasons Crosby's next contract will cover is hard to say, there's not much mystery about the money that will be involved. It's pretty much a lock to be based on some permutation of '87,' whether it's the third in a series of contracts with an $8.7 million salary-cap hit, a deal that pays him $87 an hour or one that's worth 87 cents per second."

The Road Ahead for Crosby

At 36 years old, Crosby has just two more years remaining on his current contract.
While it's highly likely that he'll keep playing after this contract ends, all signs point to him sticking with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Considering his athleticism and skills, it wouldn't be out of the question for him to continue in the NHL past the age of 40. However, it would be unexpected to see him commit to a contract lasting four seasons or more.
