I don't blame him for playing in Italy and I guess it's possible that a team in a stronger league offered him a contract that didn't allow him to leave as soon as the lockout is over.

As I understand it (please correct me if I'm wrong), some players have signed contracts that don't allow them to return to the NHL after Dec. 31st.

Like Fletch, I wish he would've played for Hartford. He may find some success playing on larger ice surfaces in Europe, but that won't help him when the lockout is over and he returns to NHL rinks.
