You're a pretty selective reader. I'll sum it up my belief for you: old, wimpy, passive Euros (NO), younger, more North American oriented Euros, prefereably with size (YES). To be Euro is not to be a race. To be Euro is to be trained on large European rinks to play a passive containment game with zero physicality. North American hockey is played along the boards and in front of the net.

To win in North America, you have to win one-on-one battles against big, strong players.

To win in Europe, you have to play a disciplined, conservative soccer-style containment defense and wait for a mistake. I usually fall asleep, so I don't know what happens when that mistake happens. Probably a triple-sow-cow and a "10" from the judge.
