North America vs the World

In the event of the lockout and many NHLers going over to Europe, it has me thinking of how many NHL superstars, all stars, elite players or players in general are now becoming more and more from overseas. Which had me thinking if teams were created for North American side to face the European side... who would win?

Managers, coaches, players, trainers... all either North American or elsewhere (basically Europe lol)

I limited the thought to discuss the present day. Health, age and current production value all included. Chemistry would have to be included as well, put everything into consideration. Below will be my projected rosters for each team with 3 reserves.

The rules will be NHL/KHL size rinks. NHL current rules except no trapezoid.

The rosters below are as follows...

Manager: Steve Yzerman
Coach: Mike Babcock
Assistant Coaches: Hitchcock, Tortorella

Off Line 1: Steve Stamkos, Sidney Crosby (C), Corry Perry
Line 2: Rick Nash, Jonathan Toewes, Claude Giroux
L3: Zach Parise, Mike Richards, Ryan Kesler
L4: Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron (A) , Ryan Callahan

Def Pair 1: Shea Weber (A), Ryan Suter
DP2: Drew Doughty, Jack Johnson
DP3: Duncan Keith, Kris Letang

Goalie: Jonathan Quick, Ryan Miller

Reserves: Eric Staal, Kevin Shatternik, Marc-Andre Fleury

World Players
Coach: Zinetula Bilyaletdinov

OFF Line1: Ilya Kovulchuk, Evgeni Malkin, Marian Gaborik
OFF Line2: Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk, Marian Hossa
OL3: Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Loui Eriksson
OL4: Alex Ovechkin, Niklas Backstrom, Anze Kopitar

D1: Zdeno Chara, Erik Karlsson
D2: Niklas Kronwall, Marc Streit
D3: Anton Volchenkov, Sergei Gonchar

Goalie: Henrik Lundqvist, Pekka Rinne

Reserves: Mikko Koivu, Cristian Erhoff, Semyon Varlamov

*** The rosters r not so important i did them for an idea and for fun. Its really the whole depth.

If you have a better idea of European roster, please share or the coaches or managers. Love 2 know more

But the main idea is who would win?

Best of 5...
2 in North America, 2 in Europe... final game in flip coin... least travel in series (so negligible)

so who wins?
