No one that has signed an NHL contract who has 4+ years in the CHL will be back even if there is a lockout. Teams will send those guys to the Minors instead.

Hey I would love Mark Stone and Michael Ferland back in Brandon but I know both of those guys will have roles in the AHL with or without a lockout.

A guy like Pysyk with his pedigree will be in the minors.

You also have to remember these CHL teams only have room for 3 overage spots. You can't risk dropping guys for a few months of a player and risk losing them once the lockout stops.
