There is some talk among media circles of the potential for NHL team owners to recruit scabs to play for their teams this season.

I wonder.... who would you want to see playing in a Canucks uniform this year (aside from the regular team)? I wouldn't mind seeing Jiri Slegr get pulled out of retirement!

That ....would be brutal. It's not like the players are on strike.

As things stand, I will watch the NHL when it starts up again.. if the owners brought in Scab players, I would never watch it again.

A chance to be in a Canucks uniform...i'll be that replacement player.

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

I will take Shane Falco! He played Quarterback once, so I don`t see why he could not transition on the ice.

I would gladly be a scab, as i have no chance at becoming a real nhl player when the lockout eventually ends.

This has the potential to be a huge problem for the owners should they do it. Imagine paying thousands for season tickets and having to watch guys who are likely barely ECHL calibre. I'm sure the TV networks would be none too happy as well. The lawyers would all die happy.

There's a reason these 'scabs' aren't in the NHL. Why not just televise ECHL games instead...

Doing this would just expediate the creation of a new league. All the locked out NHL players would form a new league and people would be clamouring to watch the best in the world do what they do. The 'NHL' and it's scabs would quickly fall apart and we'd never hear from Bettman again. I'm starting to like this idea.
You are.

Didn't impress too many others, but I thought it was good.

Short answer: Bure. 10 years ago.

Fixed that for you. Even then, it'd probably have to be 15 years ago, or more. His knees would keep him from being able to do what he used to do.

Would never happen. The players don't have the resources or connections to create a viable league that would make them enough money. You expect them to play for free?

These players are used to making millions of dollars. I just can't see them taking more of a cut than they would if they signed a new CBA with the NHL and owners. With the NHLPA saying they are doing this to protect all their players, creating a new league would leave a lot of those players without jobs.

For starters they would need to find arena's to play it that would make it work while, good luck with that one.
