Yes indeed. Maybe even Detroit. :wink:

Funny how "enough money" can influence things.

i don't know...i keep thinking of the plane crash last year, and the reports that it wasn't uncommon to use beat up old junkers for team charter flights. it's probably a little representative of the KHL vs NHL lifestyle.

i think we're getting a little away from the point though. do you think guys come over here simply for the fame?

No, they come over for the money. Or go over, I should say.

And while I'm not too keen on living in Russia for various reasons, I don't think the plane crash is in any way representative.

I agree, and this supports my point. I really don't think the American lifestyle influences anything. Malkin lives a rock star life in Russia - at least he can if he wants. Money and fame are the only reasons to come play in the NHL. Geno loves trophies.

I would say, actually, that many European players would prefer to have their families in their homeland rather than here.

Knowing you're competing day-in, day-out against the best in the world is a driver too. Ichiro was a rock star in Japan before coming over here.
