If there is no 2012-2013 season, have we seen the last of Timonen as a Flyer?

FWIW... IIRC, Kimmo has been quoted as saying something like, (greatly paraphrased) 'Who knows, if this goes on a long time I may lose my interest in continuing to play... I might not want to return and I may retire... we'll see how this pans out.'
This I believe was early on in the LockOut... He has not decided that he'd be better off keeping in game shape in Europe, but he rather has decided to stay home with the wife and kids... unlike Briere, Briz, etal, all loving fathers and family men who chose to travel and play... I suppose he could get used to it and, if the Season does not start, he could just continue to be a stay-at-home dad in the sense that he won't travel as an NHL player any longer. Maybe playing an abbreviated season would convince him otherwise... Of course, this is pure conjecture on my part and mean nothing as to the way he feels.
