I'm interested in who is even eligible for AHL play. If I'm not mistaken, its ages 22 and under, plus players with a two-way clause, and certain number of older players per team (I'm thinking its 4?). Who in the Wings system qualifies? Who are realistic candidates for filling the few veteran spots?

Also, what notable players around the league qualify?

One person I absolutely want to see stay and play in the AHL is Brunner. I'll be seriously disappointed if he spends the lockout in the Swiss League.

I think some vets will just sit it out and wait and start playing around Xmas time if the lockout continues.

I'm pretty sure that if there's no season, you're gonna see a lot of NHL players playing NHL13 online. That'll keep them sharp. I will be their friends as well unless they're Cansucks or Waddling s*** Birds. :lol:

The thought of not having hockey this year is making me lose it if you guys haven't noticed.

I wouldn't mind some talent down here.

Hell, they have had the talent in GR. They have just underperformed.

From Sportsnet:

Despite a possible work stoppage looming in the National Hockey League, the Swedish Elite League will not accept any short-term contracts from NHL players unless they are willing to commit for the entire season.

From TSN:


Russia's Kontinental Hockey League has announced a new set of guidelines for its clubs signing NHL talent in the event of a lockout.

Aimed at ensuring "that only top-level foreign players come to play in the Kontinental Hockey League," the KHL announced specific conditions regarding which players were eligible to sign deals.

Brunner has committed to the AHL in the event of a lockout, to acclimatize to North American hockey, so there you go
