I remember during the 1994-95 Lockout the PA had a tournament at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton Ontario, Yzerman was there. I even got Roenick to sign my hat.

that's pretty awesome of the players to put on something like that.

Sure is. And it's even more awesome that they mention doing it for the fans in the article and that the tickets are only $20 and all money goes to charity. I hope they keep touring doing this til the lockout ends.

aren't then Russian or Czech players joining KHL or Czech Extraliga doing exactly the same then? I mean - they could sit on their sofa and sip beer not caring to go there and play for money that pretty much equals a bag of pucks in the NHL. instead they go to their home countries and entertain own fans?

Sure they're doing the same and this is a big reason why it's so easy for me to side with them.

Swiss league and KHL are absolutely stacked and I am sure they'll continue to add the next wave of stars soon.

Bobby Ryan's take on the situation; from New Jersey Courier-Post:

"I'm going to handle things the way I think things should be handled," he said. "I'm going to continue to skate with the guys ... whether it's coming back here (to South Jersey) for a couple weeks at a time ... I think it's important to stay here (in the United States) and be part of the solution and not just run from it."

Bobby Ryan's take on the situation; from New Jersey Courier-Post:

I don't understand that quote, what difference does it make where Ryan or any other NHL player spends the lockout? He's not on the negotiating committee, IIRC? And skype and/or teleconferencing works just about anywhere in the world these days.

I fully understand his stand and agree with it. Maybe he comes from a family that has a tradition steeped in this kind of situation. Please keep in mind the fact that players who have temporarily gone elsewhere to play are being paid; they're not doing it for free.

Here's another story from the Toronto Star about Mike

Cammalleri.
