Report: Recchi offers lockout advice

“The longer they’re out, the revenues are going to go down and down,” Recchi told The Boston Globe. “Corporate sponsors aren’t going to be lining up . . . so there goes that money. The schedule isn’t going to be 82 games. . . . That’s more money lost. So, how are you going to get a better deal? Personally, I think the best time is now.”
“They’re always going to get paid, no matter what. Look at that last deal. We ended up with the cap and everyone thought it was a bad deal. But it ended up great, right? No matter what the system is, or has been, the players get their money.
“They have to think, what is best?” Recchi told the newspaper. “Are they better to get 90 percent of what they’re due, or are they better to get zero?”
