Well the players who came back were playing outside of the top leagues in Europe... but I might be wrong. Europeans fly to NA to play hockey, so why couldn't NA's fly to Europe to play the game they love?

They wouldn't be stealing anyone's job, it's a business, period. I your boss has someone better in sight, he'll sign him for the good of the company and his own job. At the moment, the players are making didly squat, so earning something is better then nothing
