Quote:
The Pittsburgh Penguins star said Friday the prospect of lacing up his skates in Europe is growing more appealing as the NHL lockout nears the three-month mark. The latest round of talks between owners and players broke down Thursday night, leaving Crosby "disappointed" and considering other opportunities.


"I just want to play hockey," Crosby told reporters after an informal workout with some of his teammates on Friday morning. "As far as whatever option is best there, I'll start thinking of it a lot more because this stuff is getting ridiculous."

Pardon me if I sound stupid here but didn't the NHL have a lockout not too long ago? I don't really pay much attention to it but it seems like it wasn't all that long ago they had a lock out. Think

Yeah, they had one in 2004-2005. Full season was on lockdown.

Amazes me how this league has stars like Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin miss two seasons in their career because there is no season and the owners still think that Gary Bettman is the right man for the job. This man is costing you billions and causing you to lose fans because they're missing out on healthy prime years of stars that are players that don't come around very often; yet you stand by his side? Absurd.
