Sidney Crosby is not even through dialogue and his grandmother is not the theme.
A phone call back to Nova Scotia Thanksgiving weekend inevitably out of control, rushed to the status of collective bargaining, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, including HK $ 3 billion of hockey around the world is asked: the season When did you start?
Crosby said Thursday, “This is for all who would like to talk about,”.
This includes Pittsburgh Penguins captain, sent a reporter’s question in the suburban practice facility the virtual anonymity skating after patiently. It is a morning, he should have been in the preparations for the season – on the island Friday’s game is already locked – eliminated one of the six Penguins games, but found his experienced teammate handful of drilling.
They felt optimistic about the small number of people now living in the town to reach a settlement soon, and hope to open training camp. At this point, Crosby and unwilling to accept the lay-off may be a threat to the concept of the entire season.
“Can not see it get to this point, I really do not do it,” he told The Canadian Press. “It even crossed my mind to be honest with you, I think, if anything, I think is more just about whether non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (used to start the season) in mind a date and they In fact when to start negotiations. ”
It does not happen this week in the two-day Arab League and the NHL Players Association meeting in New York. Cut off these two sides held talks on Thursday afternoon, and again reported no progress in its current impasse.
Two weeks before the regular season has been wiped out and cost almost U.S. $ 200 million revenue loss of 50 million, according to Bill Daly, Deputy Director of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
The optimism of very Duokeluosi than rooted in his growth in seven years in the league. During the year 2004 -05 lock and the QMJHL Rimouski Ocean skating, new non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma returned the following season to help the sport to new heights.
Crosby said: “There are a lot of momentum. “I really hope that (the owners) will not be considered, of course, at the end of the day, I think hockey in a good place, everyone is doing a lot of good things to go there. …
“It will be a negotiation strategy or something really ruined things unfortunately.”
The time is currently locked in particular, to make life difficult for Crosby concussion symptoms limited to just 63 regular-season games the last two seasons. He is the feeling of the time now more than ever before – “I have a long way” – but that all he spent aside to help him remain patient during the negotiations.
Crosby, of course, it looks as if he did Thursday local skills coach put through skating and stickhandling drills while miss a beat. The NHLPA issued black sweater wearing has become the locked players across North America in uniform, he has effectively woven through Tower and skating stride he signed.
In addition to ice talent any session in any stage of the town, only about a dozen fans watched seat. One of the three was wearing a No. 87 sweater.
It seems as if this will be as still Crosby reality of U.S. $ 100 million 440 zero-million, 12-year insurance costs for the foreseeable future, he signed an extension this summer to make Europe less attractive option for him than others. He can always find own overseas eventually, but it may occur only if the entire non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma last season was canceled.
Crosby said: “I do not mind, there is a date”.
His entire focus is dedicated to maintaining the sharp new CBA quickly get together. Crosby, they spent last week training with Andy O’Brien in Colorado Vail altitude between 20 NHLers, he has slipped four times a week with his teammates in his Pittsburgh.
“Even if you do not see much progress in the negotiations, you can not change on how you going to do,” said Crosby. “I think, to remind ourselves that this is very important.”
So non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma face waiting for others.
The Crosby prefer to believe that the owners are committed to the deal, but of many compatriots players like he could not help but suspect whether lock things they recently decided to use as a means to coax a better arrangement Union.
“This is the way negotiations sometimes work,” he said.
Crosby sat August 14 negotiating session in Toronto when the NHLPA submit its initial recommendations and collected nearly 300 athletes just before the lock, flew to New York last month. He is also the day-to-day talks progress to keep a close tab, and I believe the two sides will find something work sooner rather than later.
“Still early,” Cross said. “No decision taken to ensure that no time in the things that they will regret.”
