• Donald Fehr again raises the specter of the players going after the salary cap system if the lockout goes on: "If this goes on for an extended period of time, I don't know what they (the players) are going to do. But I think it's safe to say, they would be exploring all options." [Toronto Star]

• Interesting story about Henrik Lundqvist and his lockout team: "According to the New York Times, Frolunda needs an estimated $30,000 per month to cover the cost of insuring Lundqvist's contract, which has two years and $13.75 million remaining on it. The team put together financing -- a consortium of sponsors will cover the costs -- for insurance and will now pursue the Swedish goalie." [QMI]

• RJ Umberger will help coach hockey at Ohio State during the lockout. Please have this lead to Jack Johnson coaching at Michigan, and eventually a Jacket-on-Jacket fight between the benches. [AP]

• Rick Nash is back from injury for Davos. [NYT]

• RIP Budd Lynch. []

• Peterborough Petes fire GM Dave Reid just six games into OHL season. [Buzzing The Net]

• Bourne's Top 25 Under 25, which really needs an explanation as to how Jordan Staal ranks No. 11. [Backhand Shelf]

• The New Jersey Devils are producing their version of "Saturday Night Live" during the lockout, which shouldn't evoke any Marty Brodeur as John Belushi/Chris Farley/Horatio Sanz jokes. [Devils]

• Stephane Robidas heads to Finland to play during the lockout. [Dallas Stars Blog]

• Finally, here's Kevin Bieksa doing the weather on Global TV, informing the public that teammates, er, temperatures are falling.
