Depends on what kind of player I was. If I were a fourth-liner just coming out of the minors, I'd probably go back to the AHL to hone my skills in an environment that's the most similar to what I'd see in the NHL. Now, if I had mad skills like Dats or Zetter and just wanted to do something new & fun, I'd consider Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, etc. I don't think I'd chance it in Russia, even though the KHL makes the most money. I'd love to visit Russia someday, and I actually speak a little of the language, but the situation's just a little too volatile for my boring self, especially over the long term.

I wouldn't play, I'd hang out in California and stay in shape there. After being in the NHL, traveling city to city in one of the lower level leagues wouldn't be fun. I wouldn't go to Europe either, you never know how safe it is to fly there.

I'd probably knock Omark off the Z/Brunner line and on non-gamedays I would be playing Assassin's Creed 3 in the Swiss Alps.

I win ;)

I would either go play on EV Zug with Z, and Brunner, or CSKA Moscow alongside Datsyuk. Whichever team took me first (hopefully CSKA)

I'd play in th SPHL for way less money of course but being and NHL Player I can imagine I'd do very well in that league. Otherwise I would consider coaching a team while still skating and working-out.

If I were going to play anywhere, other than stay back and train, it'd be Sweden

I can see both alternatives...wanting to stay close to family, and yet expanding your horizons by going to a different place.

I kinda envy Drew Miller playing in Scotland...I've always wanted to go there, it's a beautiful country, English speaking (if you can get past the brogue), great pubs, wonderful music, history up the ying yang...what more could you ask for?

New Zealand.

they have an ice hockey league.

stay in shape,be a star, help grow the popularity, make a little side cash, spend some time in a beautiful country, and continue to speak engrish.

take the family on a year vacation!

now...all i need is the hockey skills to do so.

aw hell...train and play with the lacrosse and rugby teams too.

Unfortunately, the league in New Zealand (and Australia's league as well) are in the off-season now, it's almost summer there. That would be an awesome experience though!!

I'd play in the Greek Ice Hockey Championship. It would be more for the vacation than actually growing as a player. Honestly, I'm probably good enough to play for one of the clubs as it is. In Greece the quality of hockey is so bad that the national team is in the same division as Mongolia, N. Korea, and the UAE.

If I was on a million dollar contract then I'd already have some sort of year round rink attached to the house. So that along with training like Rocky I would spend as much time with my family as I could...

Choose a bit of a lower league overseas and try to tear it up.

This is not an NHL player attitude. Play the toughtest opponents possible so you don't get soft.
