An article in the Edmonton Sun suggests Taylor Hall would spend the early portion of a lockout making sure he’s completely recovered from off season surgery.
Robert Tychkowski’s article goes on to quote Hall on possible playing locations during a shutdown, with Switzerland a likely choice. Switzerland is the place Edmonton found Michel Riesen, so we’re not certain if they know hockey or not. However, the country has much to recommend it, including a flag that resembles the Red Cross flag, chocolate and banks that have lots and lots of money from the war.
Switzerland is a “land locked” country, which means there’s no water. Anywhere. The Alps are a big deal, and the country says they are neutral but my Dad never believed it and Trudeau was neutral too and look where that got us.
Anyway, Switzerland. It’s a pretty old country–being that it’s in the old country–but the most famous person from there is Roger Federer, who is not a team player.
Best of luck, Taylor!
