Sidney Crosby Says Players Will Not Give in to Contracting Rights, League Not Taking Negotiations Seriously (Video)


Sidney Crosby typically isn’t one to speak out to the media, but even he is past the point of politeness about the NHL lockout.

The Penguins’ captain said that players will not give in when it comes down to contracting rights. He also said that the owners can survive without hockey, while the players can’t. Crosby made sure to say that for the players, it’s not about money, but more about their rights within the profession.

Former Bruin Mark Recchi thinks that the deal is only going to get worse for the players the longer the lockout continues. He urged the NHLPA to get a deal done now while they can still play nearly a full schedule.
