Many players have prepared for the lockout by signing contracts to play in Europe.
Others have agreed to play in a four-on-four league known as the Original Stars Hockey League that will criss-cross North America playing exhibition games that may begin as early as Friday.

If there's enough of us making a point that we'll not attend games or watch NHL hockey until the end of 05-06 season, and make them understand that, we fans, are an influence to this whole thing too. Both the NHL and the NHLPA thinks that once they get back together, we fans will be like clones and just walk back to the game. If we make a stand and make them understand, they'll HAVE to do something quick.
Let's start a NHLFans Association
I'm damn serious, I'm not going to attend a game in the next two years if they don't sort this thing out.
