NHL-experience has nothing to do with talent.
If a smallish scorer isn't good enough for the top-lines in the NHL, you won't see him on the third or fourth lines either. That doesn't mean that a gritty AHLer who played 20 five-minute games in the NHL is better than him. Those guys rarely come over to Europe, because they are simply not good enough.

The "foreigners" in Europa are either former NHL-players or the high-end guys of the AHL, with some rare former-ECHLers who have developed into something more.
