In Europe the emphasis has always been more on the skill side of things than just playing physical. The small ice in the NHL makes for more physical play and more shots on goal, but there's much less actual passing between players - just dump the puck and see what happens.

The NHL makes for a more exciting game of non stop action whereas the European game requires a bit more patience.
The funny thing is that lots of people in Europe will not watch the NHL because of all the brawling and fighting and little actual play.
