• 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]
