If you were an NHL player during the lockout, and you had your choice of other leagues in which to play, which would you choose? Take everything into account: style of play, way of life or culture-shock, money on offer (heaven forbid!), etc. Personally, I'd probably end up in Sweden or Finland. Culturally, I'd feel closest to Finland, but it seems the money is better in Sweden. I should point out that I am influenced by my own Finnish background, but I'm curious to hear what others think, especially those with entirely US or Canadian roots.
