The Penguins are set to show their position on the persistent Sidney Crosby durability questions and do their talking with plenty of zeroes.

TSN's Darren Dreger reported Thursday that Crosby and Penguins will announce a long-term extension with an average annual value of more than $9 million and a total value over $100 million.

Crosby is not having any concussion-related problems and for the first time in many years is having normal summer workouts. CBC reported in early June that a 10-plus-year deal was in the works.

He said in early June he "feels great" and has resumed normal summer workouts.

His summer workouts were cut short in 2008 and 2009 because the Penguins played into June. Also, he was fatigued in 2010 following the Olympics and the Penguins playing two playoff rounds.

Then came the summer of 2011, when lingering concussion symptoms forced him into only minor workouts.

Finally, he is able to resume the rigorous summer workouts that once were his routine.
