That is only until the AHL season starts. He talked about this in the press recently...just playing a few games for EV Zug and taking care of loose ends in Switzerland, and then playing with the Griffs this season until the lockout ends (if it ends).

“The plan right now is to go back to Switzerland for a couple of weeks and then be back when the American Hockey League season starts, adjust to the small ice and get ready for (Red Wings) training camp,'' Brunner said.

He said if the NHL locks out players on Sept. 15, he'll return to Switzerland and play a couple of games for Zug, his hometown team, and then join the Griffins. He is exempt from waivers, enabling the Red Wings to assign him to the AHL.

“For three weeks there isn't really much to do here,'' Brunner said. “I would rather go back and get a couple of games to get in shape and come over with good confidence level and then get right into it.''

The Griffins season opener is Oct. 12.

wouldn't make that much sense especially with his development. he would be doing himself some justice playing in the ahl while the lockout takes place to transition into the.north american game. it would only hurt him.and his chances of playing in the big show if he were to stay there. just my two cents. sounds.like the kids got his head on his shoulders though and has a really.good attitude. excited to see what he can bring.to the table after his translation to the n/a game

He was assigned to GR. Pretty sure that means he is playing there.

Looks like deal is done for now going to play in Pardubice pic.twitter.com/yJVIp5TC

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Ok, the first Wing to sign a deal in Europe is our beloved Pavel Datsyuk, with Ak Bars Kazan of the KHL, terms tbd.

I wonder where the rest will end up? We got some hints earlier this week:










And then we already have three that won't be playing anywhere. Surprisingly, Zetterberg is here to stay and fight for the NHLPA:



Said Zetterberg to the press:

Love what Z said about Buttman. He needs to go so we don't have a 5-7 year countdown to the next NHL lockout.

"I play hockey, but I am not very good.  Can someone please tell me what it would take to sign with the Wings ? I can use a million or two."  ~ arag

Meanwhile, in non-Wings news...I saw that Patrick Berglund is playing for Vasteras in the 2nd tier Swedish league Allsvenskan FOR FREE, while Ovie has signed with Dynamo in the KHL for $5.7 Million tax-free!!! :glare:

Z's already came out and said that he isn't playing anywhere for the lockout and will be on the committee to try and hash things out on their front. Boy's ready to fight to play some hockey! (or not, depending on your personal views on the CBA negotiations) If i'm wrong hell! I'd rather him not play and let that horrible back of his recover alittle more than a normal offseason.

Awesome news about Zetterberg staying until at least Christmas. If anyone's body needs extra rest it's him. He should come back firing on all cylinders as long as he continues working out.

Without playing, Homer is done. At his age and with his problems months of inactivity is going to make him far less effective than normal.

EDIT: That shocks me that Ovechkin his playing for just over 5 million. Usually Russia throws TONS of money at people. Are they trying to be less mafia like or something?

I would think that's because they know the NHL is locked out and so they know they don't have to pay him ridiculous figures to lure him back to Russia.....he's playing in Russia whether he makes 5 mill or 10....so they offered 5

I could be wrong but I am pretty sure that the KHL implemented a rule that locked out NHL players can only earn something like 75% of what their NHL contract pays them..

And I'm guessing there's a clause where he can bail and return to the NHL if the owners stop locking the players out. That's going to lower the amount too.
