For years, when you thought of the National Hockey League, two players would come to mind and it was either 2004, 1st overall pick Alexander Ovechkin, the greatest goal scorer of this generation and possibly ever, and the 2005 1st overall pick Sidney Crosby, who many consider to be the best player of the generation.



But over these past few years, we've seen both Ovechkin and Crosby be taken off this mantle, even though they're still producing at good as they always were, but now the league is more focused on players like Connor McDavid, Auston Matthews and Nathan MacKinnon.

Crosby will most likely be a first ballot Hall of Famer when his career is finished, and when he met with Elliote Friedman and Jeff Marek during the NHLPA press tour for their 32 Thoughts podcast, Crosby revealed when he might consider hanging up the skates for good.


Friedman asked when he plans on calling it a career and if he plans on playing after his current contract, which he responded:

no I don't think so, I don't want to say no, but I'm leaning towards that not being the case. You know I'm thinking about 3 more years and then seeing what happens from there. I know it doesn't do me any good to look past that.

I know that I want to continue to play at a high level, you know, I played a lot of hockey, it's something that takes a lot of effort. You gotta be invested and your body has to hold up. There's a lot of things that you need to go right to continue to play. I think 3 years is my focus and after that, we'll see where I'm at
