Regardless of the overarching theme of Rossi's article, I'd take a lot of the smaller details with a grain of salt.
Thanks for the input because when I read the article, I got that sense from it. There's probably truth to the bigger picture but I questioned the smaller details.

He has said the longer the lockout drags on, the more he has to seriously consider going overseas to play, especially because he's missed so much hockey lately that he needs to be playing competitive hockey. However, I think all signs point to regardless of how much he really thought about going overseas, he didn't WANT to go. I think Crosby has held on to optimism and hope for this long because he has no desire to join another even temporarily. With the PA coming close to decertifying, that could very well be a season lost. I think Crosby saw this as the final opportunity to get something going and I wouldn't be surprised if he was a voice of reason for the PA because he has handled himself well despite the controversy surrounding the PA and some of the comments made by other PA members.
