I was watching some Euro pro hockey over hols

and I couldn't believe the number of ex NHL'rs now plying their trade overseas:

in Yaroslavl the salary budget is 30 million bucks which is not too shabby they have: Kovelenko, Yushkevich, Nemchinov, butsaev,

In the Swiss leagues you have Oleg Petrov, Josef Marha, Dixon Ward,
Hoglund, ville Peltonen, Dube, Jeff Shantz, Dominichelli, Jeff Toms The Tominator! , Stacey Roest etc

Germany: Metropolit, Selivanov, Butch Goring (coaching), Yake, Denny
Lambert, van Impe, etc.

Ah, Glen Metropolit. I was a season ticket holder for the LI Jaws of the old RHI league. Team only lasted one season (1996) (league tanked the year after that). Glen was one of the best players in the League. I was gald to see him in the NHL a year ago. Too bad he couldnt stick.

I met him a few times. He was a good guy.

Is Euro Hockey A Good Take?

We often talk about how NHL hockey might improve if it was played on European-size ice sheets. However, I've heard some NHL execs such as Brian Burke give tepid reviews of Euro hockey, describing a lack of physical play among other things. Are the games decent to watch?


P.S. Speaking of decent hockey, my B.U. Terriers had a wild weekend in Minnesota(below). It's too bad there isn't a solid Division I college program either in or near New York City.

P.S. 2 Calgary, 5-0, at home. Join the club.

I'm guessing they didn't watch the WJC. The play was absolutely fantastic with hitting all over the place (some hard, you can just ask the Czech player the Phaneauf sent into next week) to go along with the speed and skill on display.

Not saying this has anything to do with Euro hockey as the Mentality and skill set is different over there.

I agree the play is not very physical, but it is played at breakneck speed!
if you like that sort of thing.
