Also, wonder how culture shock affects the canadian and american guys who are thrust into a situation where they can barely communicate with their teammates
I am not saying culture shock isn't there. But luckily large portions of Europe speak English pretty well. Don't think it can be near the shock of coming over here, were large portions of each Canada and USA don't know the language of the players coming over. I would assume the amount that speak or at least partially understand english to be a much higher percentage.

I cannot think of a Swedish, Finnish or Swiss player that came over that didn't already know english. I think that is a big difference.
