Then when they come over here they don't know the game or the players and they can't make it on pure skill and the system they've played their entire life is different, so they get a reality check and sometimes never get over it, but if they do, they become a fantastic player. I can't predict what will happen, but I don't think it's time to bail on this guy yet.
We also have North Americans like Plante, Hamilton, and Pitlick struggling as well in our system.

Not all these guys are going to pan out of course, but it would be nice if some of them would. If not we are going to be in for it going forward.
