Nashville Predators forward Sergei Kostitsyn said he hopes the NHL lockout will last all season, according to a report in The Globe and Mail.

Kostitsyn, who has joined Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League during the NHL lockout, said players want a certain answer from the league, sooner rather than later.

"Let's put it this way - it would be better (for the players) if the lockout continues," Kostitsyn said, according to Russian publication Sport-Express.

"Players want a definite answer. If the NHL season is lost – let it be that way. I would then play in Russia for the whole season."

Kostitsyn continued to say that he had a hard time adjusting to life in North America, according to the Globe report.

"I couldn't get used to (American) mentality. They are totally different people from us."

The NHL regular season was originally scheduled to begin October 11 but has been postponed until at least November 2.
