NHL Lockout: Sidney Crosby, Other Penguins In New York For CBA Negotiations

Some of the biggest names in the NHL will converge in New York on Wednesday and lend their presence to the current labor negotiations. Some of the names include Pittsburgh Penguins CEO David Morehouse, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, players union representative Craig Adams, Brooks Orpik and Marc-Andre Fleury, according to a TribLive.com report.

Both the players and the league have yet to reach a new collective bargaining agreement in order to avoid the first work stoppage the league has seen since 2004. If an agreement is not reached by this Saturday at 11:59 p.m ET., the NHL will implement a lockout of the players.

With training camp set to begin on Sept. 21 and the puck set to drop for regular season games Oct. 11, there isn't much time for the two sides to end their impasse.

Currently at issue is the distribution of hockey-related revenue and a move toward an eventual 50-50 split with the players and a $58 million salary cap beginning next season.
