With the NHL lockout in full effect several St. Louis Blues players are weighing their options as where they will play till the situation is resolved. For a deeper run down on who is or is not going where, check out my post on Hockeybuzz.com. For the quick and dirty version, see below:
David Backes – Not considering Europe at this time.
TJ Oshie – Not considering Europe now, but is open to it.
David Perron – Will reevaluate the situation in a few weeks before deciding.
Patrik Berglund – Heading home to Vesteras IK of the Hockeyallsvenskan (Swedish 2nd Division).
Alex Steen – Training with Modo of the SEL. Waiting to see if they will allow locked out NHLers to play.
Vladimir Sobotka – Playing for HC Slavia Praha.
Jaroslav Halak – Likely to head over to Europe/KHL.
Roman Polak – Could head back over to Europe.
No, there is no news on Vladimir Tarasenko‘s status.
Thanks for reading! Together, we’ll survive this lockout…
