Regardless of who the players would be it wouldn't be nearly as exciting and I would probably just end up watching the Marlies/Knights instead anyways.
Replacement players couldn't be anyone under current NHL contract no matter where they play as they would be a part of the NHLPA.

Also it couldn't be junior players as the lockout is not designed to destroy junior hockey seasons, and those clubs have commitments to fans and season ticket holders.

So it would have to be you and I that they're looking for.. I played CIS/CIAU level Canadian College Hockey, and continue to play in our Men's Rec league, so I could send in a resume.

Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
