Carolina center Jordan Staal, traded from the Penguins to the Hurricanes in June, is aware that Penguins co-owner Ron Burkle and center Sidney Crosby are being widely credited with helping to get the NHL negotiations moving in a positive direction.
And he doesn't seem surprised.
"There are a lot of good people in that organization and lot of people who care about hockey," Staal told the Raleigh News&Observer today. "For them to take a step and be more involved is great to see. I hope this traction will keep us moving forward.
"I was happy that new ownership came into the room and excited there was a lot of new players, as well. (Burkle) is a great guy and understands what's going on in the business world. And he truly does care about us playing and getting the league back on the ice. It's good to see him involved."
