In all honesty, I think we do look to those leagues. We've tried on all the goalies that come from there. Thought we were on Brunnstrom, we did get Petrell, Tulupov and Tyrvainen.
Other issue has been contract numbers. Can only take a risk on so many guys at a time. Have to remember we also went the route of going after college guys such as Fedun, Tremblay, House and probably others I have forgot about.
