I'm sure it is hard for some players to adjust socially but I'm not convinced that has much if any impact on how they play. Maybe feeling isolated makes it easier for some players to focus on their sport. Look at soccer for example, it is extremely common for players to play for clubs in foreign countries and I don't think it is that big an issue there.

I haven't lived abroad ever, but I have certainly traveled extensively, I'm a dual Canadian / EU citizen, as are my wife and kids, and I can understand how it would be hard for people to adjust, just not sure that translates to poor performance on the ice.
