What obvious reasons are those?

If there is, then I think Slovan will pick up no one.

If the NHL season is cancelled and Slovan still picks up no one, especially not the freely available Hossa and Gáborík (or at least makes an attempt to get them), it would be extremely disappointing and the waste of a unique opportunity. I heard some rumours that claimed that Slovan management just intends to "coast" for the rest of the season, hoping it would be enough to rescue a play-off spot. I can only hope that those rumours have no basis in fact.
That's a little disappointing. Even if there is an NHL season, this team is pretty good, and one (or two) more top 6 players would make a world of difference.
