Crosby to be a Leaf....well, not exactly.

Teen phenom Sidney Crosby could be dressing for the Leafs next season.  Well, sort of.  The Toronto Star reports that the Maple Leafs have approached Crosby with the possibility of playing for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League in the fall.  Crosby's agent Pat Brisson told the paper that the Marlies are a possibility for Crosby, but did not say whether he has talked to Leafs general manager John Ferguson Jr. 
"There's always a possibility, assuming the lockout continues and there's no NHL, that the American Hockey League will be an option," Brisson told the Star. 
"And the Toronto Marlies are perhaps a better option within the American Hockey League."   Ferguson said the Leafs are also interested.   "I couldn't imagine a better destination should he choose to play somewhere other than the National Hockey League," Ferguson told the National Post and The Fan 590 on Thursday.
