Just wondering what you guys think as to where our current players would play in the event of a lockout. Would it be the same destinations as last time? What would you like to see?

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Hard to say. If there is a lockout, do you jump the gun and go play somewhere or do you wait, thinking the lockout will end sooner rather than later.

The other thing to think about is that guys like Datsyuk and Zetterberg are older now. They were in their mid-late 20's the last time, but being older now, would they prefer the rest? Or is it more important to play in order to stay in shape....if they don't play, might be harder to get in shape than younger guys.

I posted in another thread that it would be cool to get some of our guys playing with our prospect talent in europe. Jarnkrok is in Brynas and Z could possibly head there with Franzen. Fil could go to Jokerit to play with Pulks and develop some chemistry. I just think it would be good to make lemonade with these lemons and get our prospects accustomed to the boys early. Not to mention Jarnkrok and Pulks could be making the team the year after the lockout...

Good question. I can see some of the Euros going back to their home countries. I can see some of the younger ones going to the AHL or another minor league.

Or they can go the route Bert went last time and play in a beer league, but to keep it fair, they'd have to play goalie.

Come to think of it, maybe that should be mandatory. We'd lead the league in blocked shots.

If the NHL locks out, what does the AHL do? I know the AHL is their own league, but they are using players in the same system as the NHL. Do the NHLPA and the AHL have their own CBA?

would our GM have any influence on this? like could holland ask Z to go to Brynas instead of Timra where he played his european career? I assume no, because there is no team control over the players if a lockout happens but it would make sense to do this.

This.
I think that Dats and Z to name a couple would rest up and be ready in case there's half a season.

isn't there only 50 games in the SEL though? thats not excessive by any stretch. I think it would be important for guys that age to keep the rust off and maintain their bodies.

what would happen to our player development though? even if we put a bunch of our guys in, this would go against EVERYTHING we do in holding our prospects back so they can "get meaningful minutes." I say our roster boys should stay far away from GR and let our guys there continue with their stuff... would we just stuff all our prospects in toledo?

The real question for me is there any way of getting access to the Swedish and Russian hockey leagues (among others) via internet? Paid or unpaid. Is there a Center Ice package for other leagues? How will I get my hockey fill???

Love to see our guys go to the Euros to play with our prospects. But, only if they can return to the NHL if the season resumes.

I don't know the answer to the op's question, but I wonder how it would work with the KHL given that I'm pretty sure each league has to honor the other's contracts? Anybody know if this would be a problem or no?

There are all sorts of streaming sites that you can choose from, and usually they'll have KHL games at least. Plus, I'd imagine if the NHL locked out and all the talent was in other leagues then more international streams would pop up to deal with the demand.

Here are a few I use:

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Sending our top guns to the GR will destroy the development process big time. They are kids growing into adults by getting their meaningful minutes, if we send our stars back down these players would sit in the press box and watch them playing.

I think some will end up in Sweden, Switzerland and guys like Datsyuk in the KHL.

the ahl has limits on the number of vets each team can have. so its not as if we could send the entire roster. obviously the young guys could play there like smith and nyquist, but not everyone could go even if we wanted to. we also have to remember most of the euro leagues have caps on the number of foreign players, so those slots might go pretty fast too.

also, for the guy asking earlier, the ahl has an agreement with the phpa. the phpa represents the players in the ahl, echl, and chl. they're currently having no labor issues.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.
