We haven’t heard much from Sidney Crosby in this awkward, labor talk-filled offseason but if you want to talk lockout with him you’ll be left disappointed.
Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review caught up with the Penguins captain at an informal team skate today and when asked about a potential work stoppage, he made his opinion clear.
“Don’t even want to think about it,” Crosby said. “I want to play.”
Crosby tells Yohe that he is considering playing in Europe should a lockout eat up the season but makes it clear, “nothing is set in stone.”
Obviously if labor talks go that poorly so a lockout starts to dig deep into what the NHL season would be, players are going to have to make their money somehow. Crosby’s agent, Pat Brisson, says playing in Europe is an option for his client.
