Sad that this thread has to be made, but it'd be nice to be able to keep up with everyone during the lockout.
Skinner, Faulk and Welsh are among 28 headed to the AHL. Sounds like Semin is going to Lokomotiv. Any other commitments?

I'm sure it has been asked elsewhere, but is there any chance FSN picks up some of the Checkers' games this season? I don't really know how television contracts work at that level considering TWC has shown a few Checkers' games the last couple of seasons.
Jussi Jokinen will play for Oulun Kärpät, a Finnish team, for at least one month according to Finnish media.
My home team Going to see him on wednesday! Pitkänen will also join the club after his child is born (if there's still a lockout going on). This is the only positive thing in lockout, I get to see some of my favourite Canes-players live
Jokinen also started his season in Finland today with a win and a goal.
Had a very warm welcome too I was there, it was great to see him play... Last time I've seen him live was at the NHL Premiere in Helsinki. Oh, and he was good too, some excellent passes especially on the PP. Linemates couldn't finish so he had to do it himself with a nice wrister.
