AUSTRIAN TEAM ANGRY AFTER BLUE JACKETS' BRASSARD WALKS OUT
However, the team has had trouble keeping NHL players this season. Brassard, his Columbus teammate Derek Dorsett, Winnipeg Jets defenceman Tobias Enstrom and New Jersey forward David Clarkson have all left shortly after signing.
Even though some say playing in another professional league before the season resumes (IF it does) will provide advantages over those who don't, I can see why some are not playing right now since getting hurt by playing in another league will reduce the chances of a player making it in the NHL this season.
