It ain't the NHL, but it's a huge step for the Euro teams, and they get a jolt out of it. Even the Juniors team near me just picked up a kid from Quebec...their first. Pretty cool.
But yeah, I miss hockey....
That's really cool, mikey. A chance to see some players up close whom you might not otherwise get the chance to. I guess Datsyuk is creating quite the sensation playing for CSKA Moscow, the team Sergei Fedorov *manages* (can't believe Feds is the GM of a team... weird).
