If players want to cross the line and come back and play for their NHL team, pay them their salary.
The NHLPA may say then the NHL is trying to break the union with replacement players BUT the players threatened first to go overseas and are now going risking injury and some contracts that won't let them return when the lockout ends.
Both Countries need NHL hockey to be played for the non player JOBS it creates.
Let's hope the owners create 700 new jobs with replacement players and let's embrace them.
It would put the NHL in the strange position of being maybe the 5th best league in the world, as far as quality of play?
I guess the reffing would still be top notch.
