I'm sure the league is tad less physical than the NHL, so you're going to have some skewered stats for some players.


Not to mention, there may not be quite the urgency in the play of a lot of NHL stars over there, if you know what I mean. Just stay in shape, stay healthy, and don't do anything dumb.
Exactly, while guys like Spezza who are 'only scoring a point a game' are just trying to keep in shape and practice his skills, Brule is playing for his livelihood, he doesn't have a million dollar contract to go back to after the lockout. If he can't cut it in that league, he shouldn't even be sniffing at the NHL.
