Report: Recchi offers lockout advice

Quote:
“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.”
Quote:
“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.
Quote:
“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?”
