I'm gonna go with the latter. We have been an up and coming team now for awhile, but unless they followed the Blues I'm not sure some of our young European prospects knew how good we could be. Now that we have shown how successful we can be and our potential in the future, we became a very attractive destination, and they want to do what it takes to be apart of that.
