08:20 AM ET 10.11 | Veteran Winnipeg Jets forward Olli Jokinen believes he's looking at losing a second NHL season to lockout. [He] believes the 2012-13 season will soon be toast. ... "You have to look at it like you might have to miss the whole year. That's the mindset you have to have right now. If you think otherwise, you just keep your hopes up, maybe for nothing." Jokinen already has a contingency plan should the season be lost if the NHL owners and NHLPA cannot agree to a new CBA. "Going overseas is one option ... They have a national-team break with most of the leagues in Europe for early November for 10-12 days. I think that's when you can see a second wave of (NHL) players going overseas in mid-November."

What he means is that from the minute the NHLPA hired Donald Fehr, the players have been willing to torch this season. It should be obvious to everybody.

Precisely. The players have prepared for this eventuality.
