The exodus has begun. Just two days into the NHL lockout, star players are fleeing overseas to skate with European clubs and earn a paycheck.

And just so the owners know, Alex Ovechkin is prepared to stay in Russia for as long as it takes them to come to their senses.

“If the [NHL] continues to insist on their [demands], then it will take a full year,” Ovechkin told Sovietsky Sport (via Yahoo! Sports]. “That’s because we are not going to cave in. Then I will spend the entire season in the KHL. It’s an absolute reality.”

Granted, Ovechkin’s not your average NHLer. First of all, he’s Russian, so playing in the KHL won’t come with any culture shock. Actually it’ll probably be fun for him. Secondly, he’ll be paid handsomely and already has plenty of money in the bank.

Joe Thornton’s got no problem playing in Europe…
