Canada vs Russia series proposed (if lockout)

Dreger on TSN tweeted about the NHLPA investigating the possibility of a Canada vs Russia series (to commorate the 40th anniversary of the 72 series) if there is a lockout. Multple games divided between Canada and Russia. The games would be in November.

There is an article about it here:

Canada vs. USA would be more exciting, more competitive, and a better spectacle.

I'd love that, as would the rest of North America.

The NHL players should form a lockout league.

I suggested this a couple months back, but if they don't have an agreement done soon, I would love to see a revival of the Canada Cup/World Cup of Hockey tournament.

Get the top 10 countries around the world in a tournament with the best players involved. Canada, US, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway. Hockey starved fans will watch.

Not interested... if the lockout lasts all year, then every country should send it's A team to the World Championship. That's enough international hockey in my opinion.

This is the only thing I have interest in... Just can't bring myself to care unless it's more than just 2 or 3 countries involved.

Mostly just because I think he has an awesome name. It's up there in my book with Dalton Thrower for great hockey names. Plus been a favorite of mine since he attended the Kings prospect and development camps a few years ago. The only other Slovenian prospect I'm aware of Jan Mursak from Detroit and I refuse to cheer for anything dealing with Detroit...
