Good Morning Addicts!
And now to hockey...
The continuous departures of NHL stars overseas to play hockey can't be a good sign. While the meetings between the NHL and the NHLPA may be a good sign - considering the two sides didn't speak until mid December during the 2004 lockout - it's hardly optimistic to see so many players head elsewhere to play.
Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov gave the NHL and it's fans something else to think about when he talked about how it might be tempting for Russian players to stay in Russia once the lockout eventually comes to an end.
Feeding off of this comment, Bleacher Report put out a list of ten players who may not return to the NHL if the season is cancelled.
