Read this a couple of days ago... This just sounds crazy. In the article Aalborg Pirates' CEO(De facto GM), Frederik Akesson, states that an agent has sent him a mail in which his club is offered 8 NHL'ers that want's to play in Denmark for free.
Akesson claims that the players will pay their own insurance and wage.
I see three possible things, that has gone wrong.
A) The journalist doesn't know what he's talking about and forgets to underline, that it's highly unlikely that players like Travis Zajac and Brandon Dubinsky will be playing in the Danish League.
B) Frederik Aakesson felt he needed to show off and called a reporter to show him a mail in his mailbox. Without telling him that every other club in Europe has gotten the exact same mail.
C) I'm a pesimistic idiot because Travis Zajac and Brandon Dubinsky do in fact think the Danish league is a good place for them to spend some lockout months/a lockout year. I just don't see
I'm thinking Jannik Hansen, Peter Regin and Frans Nielsen is realistic but beyond that I highly doubt any regular NHL-player would go to Denmark.
Not even Rodovre thinks Mikkel Boedker are going to Denmark:
And Lars Eller is staying with his wife. She's due to give birth in about month so baby Eller will keep him in Montreal.
