Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils features a lot of star players – on and off the ice.

Sidney Crosby‘s Pittsburgh Penguins got booted in the first round, but after two injury-riddled seasons, he’s looking forward to 2012-13.

“I feel great,” Crosby said. “This is really the first summer I’ve had in a couple to feel good and get ready for next season. I’m excited.”

But before the puck drops on the 2012-13 campaign, the NHL and NHLPA need to agree to a new CBA. Which brings us to the guy Crosby is watching the game with: NHLPA executive director Don Fehr.

“For any player it’s nice to get up to speed and talk to Don (Fehr),” Crosby said. He added that he plans to get involved in the negotiating process.

The CBA talks haven’t started yet, but they should begin shortly. When they do, we’ll have a better sense for what the battle lines are.

    Shouldn’t be Ovi or CG be ahead Sissy C.? Why would the nhl and pa wanna talk to a first round loser? Oh wait, maybe they will actually win the next 5 stanley cups, yeah, teams always come back after getting a cup or two, then having a few years off, and rebound for five more cups…..you ppl should be following the Kings or Brodour, Sissy will never own the league again. It is just history.

      for being such a sissy i bet crosby could kick your ass. Have some class bud

        Kick my ass, what are you from Philly? Why should his Crosby be the voice of the players when the Kings are 3-0 in the cup finals? Yeah, I am a jerk, keep dreaming Crosby is the face of the NHL players. There are like 6 teams worth of players who should be speaking ahead of him. He worries about his image and the Kings win, Devils win, Panthers won, Flyers……..

        Haha that makes absolutely no sense

        Say what you want but the guy is in the nhl and youre sitting behind a computer complaining about him. Im not from philly, not that it should matter, but hes a world class player that 29 other teams would love to have. either youre trolling or a moron if you can’t figure that out. And if you are the second one i suggest basketball or soccer for you cause you obviously have no clue about hockey

    He’ll make a great negotiator for the players. Just lock them in a room with him and he can whine and cry at them for hours until they cave. Brilliant!
    until they cave

    I dont know how supposedly “hardcore” or “lifelong” hockey can continue to support the spew that comes from owners after two lockouts they created.

    Eggilsnosuoerbowls are what Philly is not about . Philly fans maybe rabid, but they are not stupid and immature as you appear to be. You envy Sid and the pens. They live in your tiny head rent free.
