What? If you actually pay attention you will see that most Norwegian posters are quite aware that he needs to work hard to stay with the NYR. His biggest supporters and the majorety of the people writing him into the line up are from NA.
Now, do Norwegians want him to succeed? Hell yeah, but that does not by any means mean that we see him as a star of the NHL.
He has, however, sparked a much needed new found intrest for hockey in Norway, and also brought many new fans to this club.
If that is such a horrible thing, I apologize for that.
