They are but it's not completely their fault. I feel the biggest reason why there isn't anyone interested in playing here is because there is no more Russian culture here in San Jose on the team like there once was. Having a fellow countrymen around can be very helpful for those guys in terms of adjusting to life. Detroit has that culture there and has maintained for a long time.

Sharks have a certain European flair like most teams do now but it's not an accident that the Russians have been weeded out and nobody from there is interested in playing here anymore. I'm sure from DW's vantage point, a lot of it stems from Korolyuk.
