I realize. It's just that no other pro league in the world pays to poach players like this. It's such a bush league tactic.

"we want you, we can't have "foreign" players on the team....but we can print you a passport on this inkjet printer here if you sign with us"

imagine if canada was poaching russian and other european kids in order to play in the CHL would be funny to see someone like Yakupov playing in the world juniors for the other side just so he can train in better league with better exposure like Sarnia / the OHL
