I think the main problem with talented euros in the NHL is lack of trust and support. Let's take Turis for example. The guy is canadian and 3rd overall. What did he do in Phoenix? Yeah, nothing. But teams kept believing in him, and now it looks like he found his place in Ottawa.

And take Shirokov - guy actually didn't get many chances to prove himself in Vancouver. Or Zuccarello. Guy had not a bad statistics ater his first 2 seasons, but Rangers didn't offer him anything, and now he's in the KHL.

Blues do need one more center bad, so I think Lehtera could be helpful. Especially considering his chemistry with Tarasenko.
