Quebec Stars to Play During Lockout? Plus Blues News

There may be NHL hockey this fall after all…at least in Quebec.
Sources confirm several high profile French Canadian NHL players and agents are considering forming two teams to play games while NHL players and owners battle it out at the bargaining table.

Some of these players includes stars Daniel Briere, Claude Giroux, Patrice Bergeron, David Perron, and goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

The initial idea is to have two teams, one representing Montreal and the other representing Quebec City, to travel throughout Quebec playing at least one game per week. There’s talk of all the proceeds going to charity.

The idea of adding other Canadian markets such as Ottawa and Toronto has also been tossed around.

European Vacation….

Over the next two or three weeks you will hear of more NHL players signing contracts to play over in Europe. Jussi Jokinen (Car) and D-man Jason Demers (San) recently inked contracts to play in the Finnish Elite League.

Others such as Valtteri Filppula and Teemu Selanne could join Jokerit in the Finnish league sometime in the near future.

    oh they gotta make this 4 team league

    Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Quebec City, and if they can slide maybe 2 of Winny, Calgary, or the Oil into the mix, make it a 6 team league… Lockout the whole season and these 6 teams will compete for the Stanley Cup.

    Toronto’s team:

    John Tavares – Steve Stamkos – Matt Moulson
    Rick Nash – Joe Thornton – James Neal
    Eric Staal – Jason Spezza – Cory Perry
    Todd Bertuzzi – Jason Arnott – Jeff Carter

    Drew Doughty – Alex Pietrangelo
    Brian Campbell – Michael Del Zotto
    Brent Burns – Dennis Wideman

    Mike Smith
    Brian Elliott

      Fuck it, make this league and I’d be fine with a 10 year lockout. Owners don’t want to play ball, just start your own league.

      And yea, I recognize that the worst player on the team, Matt Moulson, is on the first line but he and John Tavares are money together. Throw Stamkos into the mix and you’ve got a line that would kill you.

      And I’m with you Joel. A player/owner kind of league interesting.
      Speaking of which, what side was Mario on during the last lockout? He would’ve been in the players union and an owner, haha.
