He's still playing in an under 20 league for his club team so it's going to be tough to have a future with the Flyers if he isn't willing to come over for next year.
The Flyers always seem to strike out on foreign players. Detroit can get Europeans to come in the AHL with ease; the Flyers not so much. I do hope the move to Allentown will help. Allentown is no metropolis but is a step up from Adirondack. Plus it is close to both Philly and New York. Some might think that doesn't matter, but the town a team plays in is very important when convincing foreign born players to give up European league money.
