Right now only Thornton, Nash and Couture are notable NA players who have gone to Europe. Thornton met his wife during the last lockout when he played in Switzerland, no surprise there, and Nash played there as well. Couture is a surprise but I bet Thornton talked him into going there.
The Russians and other Europeans that have gone over are just doing so because they can play and will be closer to their offseason homes.
Once we see NA players go on mass over than we know the season is in trouble.
