forgive my lack of knowledge, but who the hell are Zagradinskiy and Bryukvin?? Never seen them play.

wings5, why do YOU think European hockey community has such a negative view on Europeans developing in CHL? I'm talking nearly everyone- coaches, commentators, experts, ex-players and fans? Are you even aware of the perception towards CHL/AHL in Europe and the extent of the concern there?

If CHL were some golden goose or some factory for DEVELOPING European hockey players, I would understand. But the fact is, it's just not! It's mostly a theater where Europeans come to play to get drafted. CHL's #1 task is developing Canadian talent in their own, unique approach, which is mass hockey. And there is nothing wrong with that- for Canada.
