coming back? With the absolute mess the NHL is in right now, and if the NHL comes back in whatever form it may take, will the Europeans follow? Nothing against the European and Russian players. I love watching them. My favorite player is Norstrom. I love what Frolov could've been for the Kings. But the only reason they started coming over was the money. I'm sure winning the cup is a nice accomplishment, but that was never the reason. Well, for a lot of players anyway, not all. If they can stay in their home countries, be national heros(as opposed to not known in the US), and make the same money that they'll probably end up making in the new NHL(when and if), why would they come back? I blame the owners for getting everyone in this mess in the first place by ruining the game financially on many levels. I blame the players for not ending this mess with what will turn out to be the owners best offer from this day forward.
