Gary Bettman's suggestion that the two labor sides take a two-week break from negotiations is not sitting well with some of the Rangers, according to an report on Friday.

Gathered in a local ice rink for a clinic, several players took exception to the proposed "moratorium."

"(I'm) very frustrated. I didn't expect for it to go this long. I don't think there's any need for it to be this long. We've been going for a while and then for Gary to come up with a comment about another two weeks off, is mind-boggling, to be honest with you," said Brad Richards.
