A big lol at that point ! Why do you think do 99% of the European players want to play in the NHL? Because places like Columbus or Phoenix are dream places to live? No, because of MONEY !!

Do you think top calibre players would prefer to play for a Western European team for 500,000$ if the same guy could earn 3,000,000$ in the USA/CAN?

Or do you think guys like Samuel Etoo are playing in one of the world's most dangerous places like Dagestan because of the "intense" atmosphere? No, because the guy gets 20 Mio net a year.
