Especially when you consider he wouldn't be able to understand anyone outside of hockey. Pretty depressing...I wonder if the NHLPA might be able to find a way to make it easier for Europeans to make the transition with some sort of program.
Julien said at the pre-saison camp that he was really surprise by the play of Plecanek ,because the year before , in the ahl , it's like he didn't have any emotion .Julien saw that the guy have skill , but it was like he didn't want to use it .
May be it is the same for Perezhogin ;he have to learn a new style of game , by a coach that teach in a language that he's not already understand .
I am sure that after the chrismas time , the guy is going to increase his play , little by little .
