Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby may miss every single game in the 2011-12 NHL season as he tries to recover from concussion symptoms.

Crosby won't be ready for training camp or the regular season opener, and if he does return it likely won't be until after January.

So let's look at 11 trades that would help the Penguins compete without Crosby.
