Crosby “Fed Up” With NHL Negotiations
PITTSBURGH (KDKA 93-7 The Fan) — Pittsburgh Penguins player Sidney Crosby spoke out Friday, after new talks between NHL players and owners fell through again the day before.
“From all three days, to kind of go through all of that and get a response like that is pretty devastating for everyone,” Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said Friday, following the collapse of CBA talks in New York City Thursday.
Crosby returned to Pittsburgh Thursday night and practiced with seven others at Southpointe Friday morning.
Crosby said the owners and players meetings without NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and union head Donald Fehr were productive, saying, “if it’s the case, like what Gary said in his press conference where they are going to draw a line in the sand, just say that. Don’t waste guys’ time there discussing stuff for three days and then come and say that.”
Crosby said he is closer to playing in Europe, because he just wants to play hockey and that the lockout is getting ridiculous.
