I am not convinced that either a root canal or extraction is necessary. If it's a bad crown, a new crown that actually fits may get the job done. I think the occasional pain is due to the very small opening due to the crown not fitting correctly.
I'd get a second opinion as well. However, from my understanding, if the crown isn't fitted properly there is potential for further decay to the tooth underneath. You may need to have some "clean up" work done to that tooth still.
