They tried a pickup league back in 2004 too and it didn't pan out.

From the Globe:

Insurance will be a hurdle for those playing overseas. Players and their agents must negotiate policies with European teams in case of injury. The Bruins, for example, would not be subject to paying a player’s salary if he was injured while playing for another club during the lockout. Rates vary, but one agent said a policy could cost $7,000-$12,000 per million of coverage.

Uh oh, liquor ban on in the Czech Republic.

Authorities in the Czech Republic have outlawed hard liquor sales after at least 23 deaths from bootleg alcohol poisoning. But the ban is stirring the ire of bar and restaurant owners in the tourism-dependent country and raising fears it will only drive more drinkers to buy suspect spirits on the black market.

Thank you for your contributions, David! You will be missed. It is sad that we could not sign him and he chose to go elsewhere.

Nothing but a lame attempt at trying to be funny.

The players must have some sense from their negotiators that things are not going well and that they can commit to a stint in Europe with all that it brings (relocating family finding housing, etc.). We could be in for a long lock out by the looks of things.

I wouldn't go by that.

"@SeguinProblems: are your daughters going too?!" No, it will be a solo trip. Just visits depending on how long the NHL locks us out.

Insurance for Christin Ehrhoff in Krefeld, for example, is about 25000 $ per month.
So employing upper tier NHL players comes at a pretty steep price for smaller European clubs and their sponsors.
Ehrhoff is playing without geting paid, by the way.
