Then we have a bunch of players that already got a taste of NHL and showed that they can play--Pock, Tyutin, Lampman, Balej, Betts, Ortmeyer, Murray, Moore, etc.

On top of that McGill if he is the next coach is alredy familiar with many players trusts them and knows what they are capabale of.
1st of all playing in top leagues in Europe is a hell of alot different from playing in the NHL and being that it will be alot of guys first yr in NA don't you'll think they'll require an adjustment period to get used to the smaller rinks and totally different style os play???

Aside from that did you happen to watch the last 25 games last yr???

Do you think these guys will benefit and develop well in a situation that sees them getting schelled every game????
