Nash/Thornton to Davos again in case of a lockout

Didn't know in which part of the forum i should have put it. But in case of a Lockout, Rich Nash and Joe Thornton would go back to Switzerland as in 2004/05. They have an agreement with HC Davos.

Here is the news article in german: http://www.suedostschweiz.ch/zeitung...rnton-und-nash

I wonders ow negotiations work with European teams during a lockout. If there is approximately 23 players per NHL team x 30 teams, there's 600+ players that may or may want a team to play for that year.
Do the agents of the players just call the GMs of a team/league that the player prefers to play in? How would the GMs know which players to target? Is money much of a factor for the players? I imagine it as a partial holiday for them so lifestyle would play a bigger role..

I don't know. During the last Lockout, every team (except of Davos) probably gave 8 players a try out contract. In the end, only 4 of them were able to play (only 4 foreigners are allowed in the swiss leage per team). Marc Savard for example played only 3 games in Bern.
The players make suggestions too. As Briere played in Bern, he asked the GM if he could contact Dany Heatley. Heatley came over and played about half of the season along Briere in Switzerland, before he demanded a trade to Kazan in the russian league.

There aren't that many players who could play in the Euro leagues.
No team would take 4th line plugs, goons or weak skaters in their team because that stuff doesn't work in the big rinks.
Euros are contacted by their original teams and then there's a bidding war on NA players.

I guess some of the bottom 6 guys will end up in the Italian league, Craig Adams played for Milan during the lockout.

And SUDDENLY I see this whole story as a win-win situation

If no lockout: WOOHOO! NHL HOCKEY!
If lockout: WOOHOO! NASH AND THORNTON IN DAVOS!

I wonder what Hiller is going to do... If he returns as well... Oh my, oh my... I've got to think about my blood pressure

But I fully expect the other teams to bulk up as well. IF there is a lockout of course.

EDIT:
Wait a minute...

(My try to translate it)
Quote:
If the season doesn't start per 11th Oct., HCD will bulk up. The club's president Gaudenz Domenig says: "We have an agreement with Joe Thornton and Rick Nash, that in this case, both will play for Davos again."
Soo... If the start of the season is delayed, they still play the full season in Davos or..?

They will play in Davos until the NHL and NHLPA reaches an agreement. As soon as NHL-hockey is back on they will be with their NHL clubs.

The contracts will have exit clauses for when the lockout ends. If there's a lockout, they'll play in Davos until the lockout ends.

Ah, thanks.

Thought it would be like that, but that quote confused me quite a bit.

Love the Heatley reference. I doubt we'll see as many NA players running to the KHL this time around. AK Bars had one hell of a lockout roster - Richards, Kovy, Vinny, and more.

Maybe so - maybe not. Aren't all contracts null and void if a lockout?

I expect to hear a lot of this if there is a lockout. I'd expect as well that there would be a clause in these contracts that the players can return to the NHL once there's a new CBA in place.

it won't be as many as you think. All those guys on ELC and 2 way deals will play for their minor league club as well.

Contrary to reports, both Rick Nash and agent Joe Resnick say Rick has no plan to play in Davos if there is a lockout.

Told as well that Nash is not planning on playing in Davos in case of lockout. If season somehow is canceled, that could change.
