I would have hoped that it was the Freezers that signed him...but good to know he's playing somewhere...

Eek.

Well, I guess if he knows his future is not with the Kings then why worry?

1) Maybe the team shouldn't have locked him out;

2) Maybe he knows who the new owners will be and they said go for it.

Hahahaha. The two sides aren't in any hurry to even talk about the thing that is causing the lockout. There is no team to listen to.

Don't tell that to the guys who are working their tails off down in Manchester or in the KHL or in EU or in Ont etc.

Maybe JB decided to go where he wanted as opposed to where some might have wanted him to but that doesn't mean that people aren't very interested.

The lock out isn't like a strike where mgmt hates the workers and the workers hate mgmt. The team still functions as a team and the players, coaches and others still call each other or see each other on a regular basis.

The Kings can't really dictate where Bernier decides to play while he's locked out. No NHL team has control over where any of their players play, unless it's a player who is eligible to be assigned to the minors (without having to clear waivers).

Yep, that is exactly what is said to have happened here.

JB ended up signing a lock out contract with a team that isn't where the Kings would have allegedly wanted him to play. They may have told him where they would prefer him to sign but ultimately it was JB's choice regardless of the team.

That said, the Kings do have a ton of leverage with players who are still establishing themselves and looking for a career with the team.

The Kings can show their approval or disapproval and after that it is up to the player on what they decide.

I thought the Kings weren't allowed to talk to their players.

Sutter specifically said he isn't allowed to talk to players. All management is legally barred from any conversations with locked out players.

Just another reason I think he's moved sooner rather than later.

They better not be. Employees of the NHL may not speak or have contact with PA members during the lock out.

Stevens has spoken with players down in Manchester and so have a few other coaches.

There is a distinction to be made here, it all depends on their status.

As I have said, there are allowable exceptions depending on the players status with the team and the type of contract that they are currently under.

The team still operates as a team and there are exceptions to this rule. It is a fact.

Using Google translate, it looks like regular goalie Kevin Nastiuk (hey I used train in the off-season with that guy ) has returned from injury last Sunday so Bernier has returned to Canada. The deal was only supposed to be a month but was extended due to the unexpected slow recovery time for Nastiuk.

Also a particularly garbled part at the end, but it sounds like Bernier will return to Europe to join Team Canada for the Spengler Cup in late December.

I live near the German border. Their wienerschnitzels are great, I can say.

Holden has said everything that need be said. I will translate the rest.

* Bernier ended his latest game with a 3-0 shoutout. Totals 6 wins/7 losses/2.57 GAA.
* Management (Ernst Rupp) thank Bernier for his dedication. He says; ''It is not logical that a player is taking a flight, within a day, to play for a new team in Germany. We had to respond quickly and were very happy we could acquire such a top player. We wish him all the best for the future."
* Bernier was also suprised about his move. He says; ''It was a great expierence for me. Best wishes to everyone and maybe we will meet eachother again, wherever that might be."
* Bernier will stay in Canada for a few weeks and will travel to Switzerland on 25 december, to play in the Spengler Cup.

Who doesnt want to win that Cup ?
