So NHL-level Canadian players are finally realizing what it's like to play in a different culture and different style of game and a number of them don't like it?
Is the Russian sports media calling guys like Lupul, Evander Kane, etc enigmatic, soft and so on yet? Those guys go over the KHL just to collect a paycheck and find out that skill level gap isn't as big as it they'd figure it'd be and not get the ice-time they want and then head back home and complain.
I doubt anyone learns anything about how difficult the transition from cultures and styles can be and expect to hear the next top Russian prospect to be tagged with the lazy, enigmatic label like always.
