I'm not concerned about that, I think he just felt ready for some hockey.
Anyway, we'll pretty sure know more by the end of the week, maybe even by the end of that day
Lausitz is just the name of the region, Lusatia in English. They play in the small town of Weisswasser. It's a pretty rural, backwoods area (the only place in Germany that has wolves in the wild) but with a long and proud hockey tradition, kind of a German Thunder Bay.
Former Blue Todd Gill finished his career there in 03-04. Their starting goalie Jonathan Boutin is currently out with a concussion so they had to act fast. Contract length is 4 weeks (with an out clause if the lockout ends earlier). He'd have to extend that if he wants to meet Stewart in the next 'Battle of Saxony' Dec 28.
