PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – With the NHL lockout continuing, many Penguins players have gathered for skating sessions at Southpointe. Sidney Crosby has been among them, and Jim Colony from the Fan Morning Show caught up with the Penguins’ captain for an exclusive interview.

As far as the negotiations, Sidney thinks that the latest proposal by the NHLPA is a fair deal. The players are trying to get back some of their concessions from the last CBA negotiation session that led to a lockout in 2004. The players think the owners are trying to take too much of a share of the revenue back.

Sidney talked about the possibility of playing elsewhere during an extended lockout. He will take some time to work out here in Pittsburgh first, but said, “hopefully there’s some positive talks and movement….If it seems like it’s taking a little bit more time, then I’ll have to think pretty hard about going to play somewhere else until they figure it out.”

Sidney says that he is 100 percent healthy. But, over the past few years, his injuries have tested his patience for being away from the game. That may have helped him a bit to be patient during the lockout, while he waits for things to be resolved.
