Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that as of now, Henrik Lundqvist does not plan on playing in Europe unless NHL season is canceled. While Brad Richards is currently pondering options, but is not having any discussions with clubs in Europe. ...with Lundqvist being such a workhorse and Richards up there in age, I think the time off might be the best thing for those two. Younger guys need to play, but I have no problems with veterans taking some extra time to preserve their bodies. Brooks also adds to the speculation that Michael Del Zotto is looking overseas, by noting that he is in talks with Swiss league teams.

Adam Rotter of SNYRB has the translated tweets from Sweden, but it looks like Michael Del Zotto and Dan Girardi may be joining teammate Carl Hagelin in the HockeyAllsvenskan with Södertälje. This is just another blow to the fans who believe a season will begin sooner rather than later, as more players flock to Europe to find ice time.
It’s interesting to see Del Zotto heading...

Translation: I have also been told that SSK is about to land Dan Girardi and Michael Del Zotto.
SSK is the Swedish team Carl Hagelin is currently playing with.
...guess Del Zotto had a change of heart.

...really am enjoying all this scoring from Hagelin. Hopefully it builds a ton of confidence for him going into the 2013-14 season. You see what I did there?

It’s fair to say that the Connecticut Whale have had an indifferent start to the season, stumbling to a 1-3-1 record to open the year. What the Whale’s start also suggests is that when you dig a little deeper there may be a need for patience in regard to prospect development.
With two points in his first five games Chris Kreider has hardly set the world alight. Christian Thomas...
