If I were a European prospect dreaming of playing in the NHL, I'd probably be MORE likely to come over if I thought the team wasn't that strong (and that I had a higher chance of playing in the NHL). I would be looking to make a name for myself and expecting to move on to a contender when I became a free agent in the future.

I think the reason we're seeing more players come across has entirely to do with Doug Armstrong and the relationships he's nurtured with these guys. He's made a strong effort to have a presence overseas, and has done some long arduous travel to keep in touch with these players. The guy fully earned and deserved the GM of the Year award, and we're lucky to have him.
