Again, who cares? Apparently the Pens owner Burkle was instrumental in finally getting the players/owners on the same page and Crosby did go outside of the rules to talk to him and get some PA moderates in the room to try and get traction. I don't think he's a savior but there's no need to hate on him and who cares how they want to spin it if hockey is back? He's the face of hockey and, savior or no, at least he clearly wants to be playing. Amazes me how hard it is for hockey fans to simply not hate one of the best, and most dedicated, in the world.
