09:21 AM ET 01.05 | Sidney Crosby's time in Pittsburgh could be down to a week. The league has said it will cancel the season by Jan. 11 if no labor deal is reached. Multiple sources close to Crosby said Friday the Penguins' captain would quickly sign with a European team if the season is lost. Crosby did not deny that at practice Friday. "You wait this long, trying to be optimistic," he said. "You can wait another week or however long until we know. What's another week? After that, I'll have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do. At this point, I'm just worried about playing here." Pat Brisson, Crosby's agent, also did not deny that his client would play for a European team. "Let's see what happens first," Brisson said.

It has been that kind of year for Pittsburgh. The Steelers and the Pirates season were a lot alike. They both crashed and burned at the end. Even worse, the Baby Pens are on a skid now too.

Too bad they missed the story of the Red Wings coming to AZ where they will work out with some of the Phoenix Coyotes and other players from around the NHL. Keep it over here fellas.

The best thing about it was Holmgren didn't win. Did you happen to catch the gold winning junior team when they were carrying the Cup. All good players but they have to learn how to give a decent battle cry. The whole scene was a little strange.

Congrats to Team USA. Seth Jones was right, they were the best team.

The nucks just plain blew this one off. I don't get it. Trash Binnington got lit up by the Russkies this morning.

Well, nerves play a big role when it comes to the kids playing big time (TV). At least there was something to watch, I heard:)
