Henrik Sedin C VAN Aug 16 '12
To clarify an earlier report, it looks like Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin would be open to playing in the Swedish Elite League only if there is a lockout that could wipe out the entire NHL season.
"We'll wait and see what happens," Daniel told Expressen.se. In the translated piece, he also said that they have talked with Modo GM Markus Naslund this summer about the situation, but they will report to Vancouver first in the hope that a resolution can be reached. There appears to be a great deal of hearsay and rumor right now when it comes to players possibly heading overseas, as the NHLPA and the league are starting to dig their heals in, so until something becomes official take reports out of Europe with a grain of salt.
