I find it sad that he thinks this, the foreign players in the CHL need to give up just as much to come and play in the CHL. They leave their home in their own country at 16 years old and come up and play in Rouyn Noranda living in a basement of someone that he does not know, speaking a language that is foreign to him as well. Hats off to foreign guys who come and play in NA. They need to travel on buses for long hours and have a terrible schedule until the off season rolls around. These kids care about their future enough to want to learn more about the way that hockey is played in NA and adapt their development to it. Just seems like a logical step for guys like Grigorenko and Yakupov to come and play in the CHL.
