At least they're getting playing time. Ridiculous to have so few Ukrainian's on the team though.

Don't totally get ndd's story, but the more the merrier
My family has been in Canada a long time. I think my last descendants to arrive came in the 1920's. I'm actually only of 25% Ukrainian heritage. One grandmother is of full Ukrainian descent and she's third generation Canadian. Her grandparents settled in a small 100% Ukrainian farming town in Saskatchewan in the 1890's where they speak Ukrainian as the first language even today. We've been here a while, but my family has always been very involved in our Ukrainian heritage, celebrating Ukrainian traditions and best of all: eating Ukrainian food! I'm mostly English/Scottish descent, but I tend to identify more with the Ukrainian side when talking about heritage and in the last few years I've taken an interest in Ukrainian hockey.

Bit of an odd story, but you get the gist of it.
