I generally donât follow Matt Barryâs Blog, but in his latest pile of dribble he did get me thinking a little about which players seem to be active in negotiations. Here is a salary/contract breakdown of the 18 players involved yesterdayâs meeting.
Sidney Crosby, 13 yr/112 million
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Sidney Crosby just wants to get back to work. At this point, where he takes the ice hardly matters.
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'...
We all knew the owners were going to send Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs to the players/owners meeting tomorrow. The guy gives me a rash; hardest of the hardliners. At least the owners from the Jets, Flames and Lightning will bring a little perspective.

How Ya Like Me Now?
NO ONE believed him.
NO ONE had faith in him.
NO ONE could TRUST a hockey “outsider”.

Sources tell WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton that an unannounced meeting was held Monday with a high-ranking official from each side, and significant progress was made toward salvaging the hockey season. It’s possible an...
A bunch of players and owners gather in NYC to discuss the NHL lockout. The league sends a group of six: Two hardliners, and four moderates. The players send 18 guys to represent them, and just like the group of owners, there are hardliners and moderates. What everyone doesn't know immediately but finds out quickly is that Sidney Crosby for the players and Penguins owner Ron...

I'm not bragging, but....
Five of my six NHL powerball numbers have hit.
Ryan Miller, Sidney Crosby, Jonathon Toews, George Parros, and Shane Doan will be in the room today, along with 13 other NHL players. The only player on my wish list not to participate is Steve Ott.
Here are the other NHLPAers: Craig Adams, David Backes, Michael Cammalleri, B.J. Crombeen, Mathieu...
