All in all Zagreb can offer everything you want and if you ever get a chance you shoudl visit it and teh rest of Croatia.
That does sound nice, and a big european vacation is definitely on my bucket list. Also I was no way trying to insult anyone, so I hope that you didn't take it that way. Just thinking from a language/culture perspective it will probably be different than Hershey, which is pretty vanilla. There is lots to do, but culturally it's probably pretty different than a European city. Also the travel involved with the KHL will certainly be different than the AHL, meaning he will be on the road a lot more. Thats the part that I heard is hardest on people playing abroad. For the player/coach its business as usual. But for the families they are living in a foreign city, don't speak the langauge and the player/coach is gone more than they were before. It can be a difficult adjustment for many families. Just like I am sure it is for European players coming to N.A.
