It would be. The impression I'm getting from scattered reports is that when you consider insurance costs (Aaron Ward tweeted that Krejci's insurance policy runs $240,000) and the generally lower salaries in European Leagues (other than the KHL), these guys aren't exactly raking it in. (And this is not a sympathy post, just a look at the facts) They're playing in Europe because they want to play competitive hockey.
And though a significant number are in Europe, the majority are not.
