shouldnt be a surprise, after all, he's a european player, and as we know, when the going gets tough, they disappear
Sort of like Ulfie, eh? He pulled a disappearing act every year in the playoffs. Wouldn't want a guy like that on my team. Never. You just don't win Cups with guys like that.
As for Palffy, he's a head case. He is the type of guy who makes your statement come true. I think he did basically quit, and will be back playing next year. Oh well, at least it helped keep Fleury here.
But can you really say all Euros disappear? Look at all the Red Wings Euros when they won Cups. Guys like Konstantinov. How can you not like a guy like that?
Unless you can back it up, I'd avoid this type of generalization. It's the type of thing that just isn't true, and is meant to inflame, I think.
