But clearly Habs have had all the problems in the world with their Euros. But then, Jack Todd said it so, on the contrary, we must be so succesful....
But aren't you yourself partly arguing against Todd? Perhaps since we get such a low return on those Europeans we do draft high (Perezhogin) we should think twice about increasing our European content? Plus it's not just the source, it's the stupidity of saying things like Andrei Kostitsyn and Pavel Valentenko were rushed too quickly in their development? Is the guy suggesting Valentenko wouldn't have been playing pro if he'd been in Russia? That in Russia no players are rushed but in the AHL they are?

Seriously, if we have so much trouble with Europeans, why is the answer to draft more of them?
