    Personally .. I would like the lockout to continue, until it costs the NHL a half dozen teams as casualties of War ..

    Then open the doors again with a much better competitive one , with a dramatically reduced watered down on the ice product as a result.

    After a Dispersal Draft allocating the talent from the folded teams .. Those players that lost their jobs as they are no longer good enough to call themselves NHLers, can find work in the AHL to strenghten it to make it better for prospect development.

    The NHL would instantly become more profitable as a result, and heathier moving forward in its effort to regain lost revenue.

    I've been saying for a while now, way before the lockout even started, that no deal would be done till sometime between July-October, 2006. I stand by that prediction.

    Well I was thinking the ones that he AHL currently had could be sent to the ECHL to upgrade that leagues talent, and make room for the 5 new ones coming in from the NHL ..

    If the NHL starts up again .. Then there is also all those scab jobs in Europe that NHLers filled last season .. Surely some of these players at least to return to play over seas :)

    If the NHL salaries drop as everyone wishes, and expects, we won't have to worry about to many players, as many Euro's may stay home and play. The Super League idea in Europe is alive and looking to improve. Teams got an education this year on how to run a pro team with high end players. There is a market over seas, look for it to thrive.

    And when the NHL stabalizes and turns better profit, the cap goes up, the euros come back.

    No way a Euroleague takes wind. Where are they going to play? North America? Europe doesnt have enough big facilities to anchor a multi-national superleague in Europe.

    They have a league for that now, it's called the National Hockey League.

    it will come back with replacement players, the NHLPA will never agree on a deal.
