Sidney Crosby the NHL Head Coach?

It takes a certain type of person to coach. One who can motivate a variety of personalities. One who can say the right things at the right times, and someone who can problem solve on the fly and stay one step ahead of their team. According to Penguins head coach, Mike Sullivan, he thinks Sidney Crosby has everything needed to be a successful coach in the NHL.

Sullivan recently joined hockey central of Sportsnet, and provided some insight into his feelings about Coach Sid:
I could see him staying involved in the game in some capacity, because he loves it so much, he has such a passion for it. If he wanted to be a coach, I think he would be a terrific coach because he's such a student of the game. It wouldn't surprise me one bit when Sid's done playing the game, somewhere down the line - and I don't see that happening any time soon because he loves the game as much as he does - but I could for sure see him staying involved in the game in some capacity. He's just really invested in all the different aspects of the game.
Sid has won the Cup three times, and is one of the best players to ever play the game. Crosby has no plans to stop playing any time soon, but once he does, look for the Pens to find room for him on the payroll. Coaching, or not.
