Alexander Mogilny was born in Asia (I'm sure a number of other Russian and Soviet Players were as well)...but I assume that doesn't count right?

Owen Nolan was born in Northern Ireland, not Ireland. Also Steve Smith was born in Scotland. Wasn't there a player born in Jamaica?

the vast majority of the USSR lay in Asia, so I would assume that there have been a good number of players born there

Datsyuk was born in the city that lies right on the border between Europe and Asia, IIRC.

True. But the vast majority of Russians (the USSR is gone) live in Europe. I believe it is around 80% of the population live west of the Urals. The rest of Russia is pretty vacant. Think Montana or Saskatchewan.

Sorry. I overstated slightly. According to this site only 74% of the Russian population lives in Europe.
