Good point. So that means every European that DL and his scouting staff have drafted has either played or shown a willingness to play N.A. hockey. Which is a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.

You could also add in free agents Ersberg, Dravecky, and Mikus who all played either in LA or Manchester... And Franson who while aquired in trade came over and at least attempted to make the NHL.
