Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dejan Kovacevic of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,
The only thing more absurd than the notion that Crosby doesn’t want to play hockey is that he’s conspiring to get out of town.
It’s dead wrong.
You’re going to hear some of this stuff Friday when Crosby faces reporters at about noon in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. But let me lay this out now: The Penguins, the public and, yes, Crosby all need to learn how to handle this situation better in the future.
That begins with the locker room.
A few, certainly not all, of Crosby’s teammates are of the mind that he’s been symptom-free for a while, though they have no medical basis for that. Some think he should be playing. Some simply think he should be doing more to communicate, or at least be as visible as concussed defenseman Kris Letang.
Last week in Pittsburgh, according to three sources, a group of players held a 45-minute meeting to discuss a temporary captaincy. Another source disputed that any such meeting occurred.
If it did, were those players kidding?
