The Globe and Mail reported Monday morning that Nashville Predators forward Sergei Kostitsyn "hopes the lockout will lead to the cancellation of the entire season." Kostitsyn is currently playing in the Kontinental Hockey League for Avangard Omsk in Russia, where he is very successful in scoring five goals, two assists in only seven games.

Sport Express quoted Sergei Kostitsyn saying, "Let’s put it this way–it would be better (for the players) if the lockout continues. Players want a definite answer. If the NHL season is lost – let it be that way. I would then play in Russia for the whole season."Sergei's comments do seem selfish, because quite frankly, he is doing better in Russia than he would be doing in North America right now playing hockey."I couldn't get used to (American) mentality. They are totally different people from us," said Kostitsyn from Belarus.Kostitsyn also gave a "quick jab" to the city Columbus, Ohio in saying it was the "gloomiest" city in the United States of America. That gloominess also comes with bad hockey as well.
