Locked-out Lightning Players Thread

Marty St. Louis is not getting any younger, which is why the Lightning wing said he will play in Europe this season if the NHL locks out its players for an extended period.

"With my age, you want to keep playing," the 37-year-old said Monday. "I don't want to take a year off. If the NHL wants to shut us down, we'll go play somewhere else."

Teammate Steven Stamkos agreed with the sentiment.

"Definitely thought about it if there is an extended lockout," the center wrote in a text message.

St. Louis stressed the union is "very strong, together, more than last time, no doubt about that. … I believe in deadlines, and I think a lot is going to happen in the next month. Hopefully, we get a deal done."

If not, St. Louis said he expects to be playing in Europe by mid October.

"If it gets to October, it usually means (a lockout) will go longer," said St. Louis, who played in Switzerland during the 2004-05 lockout that wiped out the season. "You have to be patient before you go to Europe, but it's definitely an option guys will look into."
