If those Euro's stay in Europe, yes, it'd suck because I love Swedish players, but it won't be devestating to the NHL. They'd survive with homegrown (USA and Canada players). They did before the Europeans started playing NHL hockey.


I see what you're saying, but I still see it a little different.

They'll adjust to where they play whether it's the east coast or west in the States or Canada.

Going from so many different countries would just be more of a nuisance. Wouldn't they have to go through customs?
I think it is pretty easy to travel from one country in the European Union to another, but I might be wrong. Russia and Khazakstan aren't in the EU though, but it probably wouldn't be that big a deal.
