I guess the last North American skater in Europe can turn out the lights. A ton of guys are leaving, and many had left already. Jason Spezza openly said that he will leave Switzerland after the Spengler Cup, lockout end or not.

Really, though, who would have guessed that playing in a strange league in a foreign country, thousands of miles from your friends and family, and for very little money, would work out so poorly for NHLers? And don't kid yourself - the NHL brass sees the steady stream of guys coming home, and knows that whether he admits it or not, Fehr is under increasing internal pressure to end the lockout. This is why the NHL is so ruthlessly pressing their advantage right now...
