Svoboda: not optimistic Lockout can be avoided
Former Habs defenseman Petr Svoboda admits he's not optimistic an NHL lockout can be avoided. Svoboda tells CJAD the longer the CBA dispute drags on, the more players will look elsewhere to play---and not just Jaromir Jagr who owns his own team in the Czech Republic.
Svoboda also suggests a players' association for junior hockey is a good idea. Listen to a CJAD 1-on-1 with the Canadiens' Stanley Cup champ in '86 and Olympic Gold medalist in '98.
Svoboda also reconfirms it was Jagr's "dream" to play for the Canadiens but he respects Marc Bergevin's decision to focus on the core of younger Habs.
