Salutations, Mr. Bettman! With the NHL Lockout in full effect, more and more players are electing to stay sharp by playing in Europe. The latest to announce plans to relocate barring a new CBA is Bruins’ defenseman Andrew Ference. Earlier tonight he tweeted: Going back to my old team,Ceske Budejovice,on Oct 7 barring any CBA.I’ll buy any Bostonian a Budvar (Budweiser) if I see you there.
