NHL lockout: Sidney Crosby opposed to break in talks

Sidney Crosby has expressed disapproval at the idea of a two-week break in talks between the NHL owners and the Players' Association. The two sides have not met since a 90-minute session on Sunday, and commissioner Gary Bettman suggested that negotiations were at a stalemate. He and the NHL's top officials think that some time off would give both sides time to reassess their positions.

But Crosby disagrees, saying: "I don't see how that's going to help anything. If that's the way he feels ultimately that's up to them. I don't really see that being the best way to find a resolution."

On the negotiations thus far, Crosby seems equally discouraged: "I think the whole way it's been played out is the frustrating part. It hasn't been as productive maybe as it could have been."

Friday is Day 62 of the lockout. The Players' Association has not yet responded to Bettman's request for a break.
