Carolina Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin may stay in the Russia-based KHL if the NHL lockout does not end in a generous enough deal for players, he suggested to R-Sport on Wednesday.
After the last NHL lockout in 2004-05, Semin stayed in Russia the next season amid a lengthy legal dispute over his contract and Russian military service obligations.
I'll look at what contract they actually sign. I like it here overall,” he said.
Semin’s fellow Russian Ilya Kovalchuk has been another to suggest quitting the NHL if the eventual deal is not to his liking, telling R-Sport last month that many stars could abandon North America.
