EXIT MEETINGS BUZZ
Despite taking some hard hits in Games 5 and 6, Sidney Crosby enters the off-season in good shape compared to last off-season.
"Helath is pretty good, " Crosby said, who indicated focus is to go into next season fully healthy and get through a full season.
The contract situations of Crosby and Jordan Staal are hot topics this upcoming summer and Crosby had high praise for Staal, while also talking about his contract situation, where Crosby indicated there might not be a sense or urgency to strike a deal on July 1 because of the CBA, like the two sides did last time around.
"He's a complete player, plays against teams top players, " Crosby said of Staal. "He's a big part of our team." As a teammate I have a lot of respect for him and hope he's around for a long time."
