In the latest issue of The Hockey News, with Sidney Crosby on the cover, Ken Campbell writes about North American players and the expectation that they could just come into the European leagues and instantly become scoring leaders.

He says that expecting players to put forth the same kind of effort that they do in the NHL when when they are paid so little and run the risk of getting seriously injured.

Campbell also says that some players don't understand that while the talent level in Europe may not be the same, the competition level is still very high.

AMBR? ? There are many NHL players currently playing in the swiss NLA, but New York Rangers' Rick Nash is for sure one of the most followed and anticipated. He already played for HC Davos in the 2004-2005 lockout, winning the swiss championship with his friend and teammate Joe Thornton, at that time captain of the Boston Bruins.

8 years later Rick Nash ? 678 NHL games, 550 points all with the Columbus Blue Jackets and an olympic gold medal won in Vancouver in 2010 ? came back to Davos to spent in Switzerland his ?free time? due to another NHL lockout. Nash, after being at the center of a big trade move by New York that saw him becoming the missing piece in Rangers' pursuit to the Stanley Cup, couldn't make his debut as expected on October 12 in Los Angeles against the Kings. Instead, he's trying to help Davos in a disappointing season start: the team was able to get only 11 points in 13 games (in Switzerland a victory gives you 3 points); despite that, Rick Nash and Joe Thornton are leaving their marks (again) on the? swiss league. In fact, Rangers' superstar scored 6 goals in 6 game, while the Captain of the San Jose Sharks is actually the top scorer of the team with 9 points in 10 games.

In the Toronto Globe and Mail, Rory Macgregor wonders how a lockout would impact the careers, stat lines, and Hall of Fame chances of some veteran players.

He notes that Brendan Shanahan was passed over from being a first ballot Hall of Famer this year and that the 2004-05 season robbed him of a potential productive season that could have landed him in the Hall this year.

Macgregor also notes that the season before the lockout Rick Nash scored 41 goals and won a share of the Rocket Richard Trophy and that during the lockout he had 46 points in 44 games in Switzerland.
