It is now Wednesday, Sept. 26; the 11th day of the 2012 NHL lockout and just 15 days shy of the original start of the regular season. 

In anticipation of an extended lockout, numerous players have signed contracts in Europe to stay in shape and earn some money while Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr compare egos. 

The bigger names include Rick Nash and Joe Thornton in Switzerland, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin in Russia, Anze Kopitar in Sweden and Erik Karlsson in Finland, with a long list to follow.
