But the NHL only draft the talented softies from those countries. Let's face it when they want warriors, it's rare they're going to look at say...Switzerland. But I can't help wondering that the fact that we're not protecting one another and never had for quite a while it's because we have too much of those type of players and that maybe maybe Euros do not have it in them to just go and jump a guy when one of his teamate has been cheap shot. In the last ten years or so the Habs have had trouble with that, I think, standing up for one another. When I saw D'Agostini laying in the corner two games ago, it reenforced that point that we need a cultural change on that team.
I agree with you, but Tender is SOFTER than most of EUROPEAN players in the league.
