The Athletic reported a massive development regarding Sidney Crosby's contract negotiations with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Since Kyle Dubas took over in Pittsburgh as President of Hockey Operations and General Manager, a cloud of uncertainty surrounded Sidney Crosby and his future with the team.
At 36 years old, and with three Stanley Cups, a few rumors stated that the captain could be interested in joining another team. However, others said that he would rather want to end his career in Pittsburgh, where it all started.
According to The Athletic, the Penguins are confident a deal with Crosby will be confirmed soon:
"The Pittsburgh Penguins and captain Sidney Crosby are closing in on a new contract, multiple team and league sources briefed on negotiations told The Athletic. The team and player are confident a deal will be agreed upon and formalized soon, the sources said."
Crosby showed last season that he can still perform at a high level in the NHL by scoring 94 points, including 42 goals, in 82 games.
There's no doubt that he can continue to play an important role for the Penguins in the coming years.
If Kyle Dubas fails to keep him on board, fans are likely to turn against him, and he'll always be remembered as the GM who failed to sign one of the best players in franchise history.
