09:12 AM ET 08.18 | "We'll wait and see what happens." That is the plan for Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin regarding the potential work stoppage in the NHL. If the lockout is implemented for the entire season, the Sedins plan to head home to Sweden to play in the Swedish Elite League, Daniel told Expressen.se. When asked if the twins had a team in mind Daniel said, "Absolutely. We have talked to Markus Naslund this summer here in Ovik and he understands the situation, he has been in the same situation."

The problem with the NHLers going to other leagues if there is a lockout is they take jobs from other players who could use the money

Can't they read, it says Elite League.

Isn't that a no-contact league?

Funny they said they'd spend the season in Vancouver regardless as their kids go to school there

So, some poor team in Sweden will have two good regular season players and when the playoffs come these two will under-perform again. Get the riot gear out!

Agreed! Not a lot of solidarity in bolting for Europe.

I have fond memories of the last lock out when Bryan Mcabe got cut by a team in Europe ?.
