08:23 AM ET 10.16 | NHL player agent Pat Brisson may be at it again. [Brisson], who organized a tour of locked-out NHL players in 2004, may do the same this year if the NHL lockout extends another month. "We did it last time," said Brisson, co-head of CAA Sports' hockey division, which represents 62 NHL players, including a number of star players like Sidney Crosby. Brisson said he would seriously "explore" organizing a world tour that would include CAA clients, as well as possibly clients of other agencies, if there is no deal by early November. Brisson was the main organizer of the IMG World Stars Tour in which 25 to 30 players played 10 games in several European cities over two weeks in December 2004 during the previous NHL lockout.

Doesn't really do much for us here in North America now does it?
And while we're about it, agents are just as guilty as players and owners in this story

Naaah. Next is a South American tour they are taking at the Dwarf's request. Might as well use this lockout to search for new franchise locations.
