Are there issues with Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby and team owner Mario Lemieux?

Sirius XMs Matthew Barnaby a former Penguins player for parts of three seasons in his career said that there are problems between Crosby, a two-time league MVP and Lemieux, a franchise icon, who co-owns the team with Ron Burkle.

Barnaby was asked if the falling out has to do with Crosbys contract, the coaching staff, losing, or not winning more than one Stanley Cup.

Ive heard over coaching, Ive heard also after the (2014) playoffs when they lost out, Barnaby said. Maybe the personnel isnt right?

Isn't is funny how history has practically repeated itself there? Both teams sucked years prior before acquiring 2 superstars, made back to back cup appearances (although 1 team won both - only difference), the stars get disgruntled at 1 thing or another or at each other, they go on to be perennial playoff teams, but never getting back to where they were. Next step: Malkin gets traded.

Haha next step is bankruptcy, then a trade by necessity (which will be coming anyway with the cap crunch).

I guess this means I can't listen to the radio for a few days now. Oh well.

Those two need a change in scenery me thinks. Highly doubt they both go, but one should. It's mind boggling to see them both struggle so much.

Things havent been the same under Johnston. He sucked all of the excitement and fun out of the team. There hasnt been quite the same buzz about them or the way they play since he got hired.

They're just a poorly run franchise at this point. Their big problems are on the blueline and their forward depth in the bottom 6, so what do they do? Go out and trade for Phil Kessel.

That trade only made sense if they were/are shopping one of Crosby or Malkin. Either would fill more holes in return than what they gave up and would also free up between $1.9M (Crosby) and $2.7M (Malkin) in cap space over Kessel.
