Today's Ottawa Sun is reporting that if Locke stays with the 67s this year, he'll play with the two new Czech imports Petruzalek and Kaspar. It also sounds like he'll really have to work hard to prove he's as good as they are. That could cause a lot of tension, and Locke is already displaying a lot of frustration. Someone on NOOF even said that maybe the 67s would be better off without Locke this year. They have enough depth - they probably wouldn't miss him.
Also interesting - it sounds like a lot of other teams are much better than expected this year, due in part to the possible NHL lockout. Maybe the 67s won't dominate as overwhelmingly as we thought?
