A quick but potentially interesting update on today's collective bargaining session: Sidney Crosby and Penguins teammate Craig Adams have made a "last minute" decision to attend the meeting, according to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. The decision to attend was announced shortly after Crosby and Adams practiced with teammates at the Southpointe Iceoplex in Pittsburgh. It's an interesting turn of events given that, yesterday, Rossi reported Crosby's only plan for Tuesday was to attend a Madonna concert: Adams said he was "looking into flights to New York," but had not committed to attending the Tuesday meeting. Penguins teammates at Southpointe on Monday — Crosby, Matt Cooke, Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz — said their plan was to practice again Tuesday and not attend the New York meeting. Crosby, who along with Adams attended the last group negotiating session between the NHL and NHLPA in Toronto on Oct. 18, said he was unsure "who's invited." Thus, he invited teammates and their significant others to join him in a private suite at Consol Energy Center for the Madonna concert. "You don't want to read into anything," Crosby said of the Tuesday meeting.
