NHL lockout: Sidney Crosby not attending Tuesday's meeting

Both the Pittsburgh Penguins' NHLPA representative and the team's best player will probably skip Tuesday meetings between the league and its players' association, as reported by Rob Rossi for the Tribune-Review.

The league and the NHLPA are meeting on a large scale somewhere in New York City. While Penguins' rep Craig Adams said that he was looking for a way to get to the city, he said he hadn't fully decided whether he would attend. And Sidney Crosby, who has attended several such meetings already, declined -- instead he'll be at Madonna's concert at the Penguins' arena, having invited several other players and their significant others to attend with him in a private suite at the Consol Energy Center.

Crosby said he wasn't sure if he was "invited" to the players' meeting. Several Penguins players, including Crosby and Adams who have not agreed to overseas deals continue to meet at the team's training facility in Southpointe to practice while the lockout continues.
