and yeah, Canada took Nedved...because he had to defect during the Cold War have some relevant examples?
again in the early 90's the whole Dinamo Kharkov school has defected to Russia, only escaping the ravaging poverty of Ukrainian hockey, not the cold war this time, lol.
All misunderstanding aside, I am all pro revamping Ukrainian hockey. For example Lisov in RA is Ukr born, but he clearly was younger than 16 when he moved to CSKA school.
