Well u cant compare Russia to any western european country. They got a different alphabet, they behave different and since Russia is a big country, they dnt need to learn english etc. French Canada is still Canada and they are also westerners. Ofc its alot harder for a russian player to adapt, than a canadian frenchie. The russian needs to learn a new alphabet, new culture (im not talking about going from Borscht to big mac, but russians behave in their own way. They need to behave in a more western way to fit in), smaller rinks, bigger arenas and english speaking teammates.
U should also know that the english language has been influenced by french, german, norwegian etc. So english is closer to french, than russian.
