News1130 is tweeted today that the GM of Cory Schneider's current Swiss club HC Ambri Piotta may be playing his final game with the team tonight. He says that Schneider is taking it game by game, as is Colorado Avalanche wonderkid Matt Duchene. The players are getting the sense that a CBA deal can be reached soon.
No word on if Dale Weise is considering returning from paradise (aka Holland) yet. Mason Raymond's contract in Sweden is a month in duration, so he is tied there until later January.
