By the way - I notice that Rotter is only 18 years old - which means he started playing in an European Elite league at 15. Which European Elite league can you play in at 15 ?
I don't think there's a bias against the Euros at all, it's the coaches and GMs that vote for it and have those Euros on their own teams, why would they be against them? It's not like we're talking about biased newspaper reporters.

Rotter played in the Austrian Elite League. Last season he played on a team with Jay Pandolfo and Eric Chouinard (two NHL players).
