Evander Kane thought he could just show up with his gear in Minsk and he'd be fine...he was wrong.
Wow, you're making way too many assumptions. You assume that Kane and Lupul could have fared much better. May be, may be not. It's easy way out to claim they did not take it seriously. I think they did but they still were not good enough to stand out on bigger ice. I guarantee you they wouldn't be elite players under any circumstances, their skating is not as good to go longer East-West.
