I don't question their choice to do so, but if they do, they should be dedicated to that team at least while they're playing there.

Giroux was a member of the Berlin Eisbaren, he gets hurt, comes to the US for treatment and is now chilling in Canada. No idea if he returns to Berlin if he is medically cleared. The lack of dedication most NHLers are showing to their new clubs is disturbing. The double standard between them and the regular roster players is frustrating. At what point is the star-struck honeymoon phase over for European players and fans and the expectation becomes that these NHL players truly intergrate with the team?

If G was injured playing for the Flyers and the Org found out he was skating about a CDN CIS team they'd go berserk.
