Bill Daly spoke to Mike Russo

NHLPA has given their players a lockout preparation memo

Gaborik will still get paid. Sauer will get paid too.

For example, the NHLPA points out that injured players still would receive their paychecks during the lockout. That would include players such as Boston Bruins center Marc Savard and Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger (concussions) and New York Rangers winger Marian Gaborik, who's expected to be out until November after having shoulder surgery.

"If you are unfit to play because of a hockey-related injury when a lockout begins, you are entitled to receive your salary until you are fit to play," the memo said. "If you are currently injured, you should make sure that your condition is fully documented and that your club is aware of it. If you do not receive your salary payment when it becomes due, you should contact your agent and/or the NHLPA legal department immediately."
