Haha, ok. Jump on me for not agreeing with you in the slightest about Chipchura, Perry, Green etc etc. You have been here for what, 2 days? and I haven't done you anything.

Ignored.

What happens when only minor signings are going on, people tend to get impatient and will ***** at everyone about something so small (even RUMORS )

I've noticed that too. You know, if you work it properly, you can make a pretty entertaining drinking game out of it. Soft Euros comment, one shot; yet another Bobby Ryan proposal, one shot. Might even make things more bearable.

It's definitely been a bit unbearable lately, but IDK if a drinking coma is the answer .

Some interesting perspective:

Quote:
The same holds true for veteran players on the bubble on NHL rosters. Case in point: 26-year-old Norwegian forward Patrick Thoresen. In North America, he's a restricted free agent whose rights are still owned by his most recent NHL team (the Philadelphia Flyers), While there has been interest by Philadelphia and other clubs in bringing him back to North America, and Thoresen himself has repeatedly said that he'd love to return to the NHL, he is unlikely to receive anything but a two-way contract.

Although he was a top-notch offensive player in Canadian junior hockey, an up-and-coming scorer as a youngster in Sweden's Elitserien, and a point-per-game player in the AHL, Thoresen had difficulty scoring at the NHL level. He wound up in a fourth-line role in both Edmonton and Philadelphia, where he established himself as a capable defensive forward. But no NHL team is going to throw big money -- or guarantee an NHL job -- to such a player. So Thoresen went back to Europe. In the last two seasons, he has been one of the top offensive players in the Swiss National League (2008-09) and KHL and has earned star status on the Euro scene.

Given the choice between risking a minimal NHL role or AHL assignment and being a first-line player in the KHL making more money, it seems increasingly likely that Thoresen and players like him will opt for Europe. Meanwhile, there is no shortage of young North American players who are champing at the bit for the opportunity to battle for an NHL roster spot, even if it means spending a prolonged period of time in the minor leagues.
Reasons Why NHL Euro Players in Decline
