European players earn much, much more in Russian, Swiss, Swedish of Finnish leagues than they would earn on AHL. Expecially so because of the weak dollar. There's really no reason for an European player to spend more than 1-2 years in the farm. Young players give themselves a couple of years to see if they can secure a one-way deal to NHL, and if that doesn't happen, they''ll move on to earn as much as they can during their career.
