I'm honestly all for North American over euros  OFFENSIVELY  anywho

For what reason? Half of the top scorers in the league (2 of Top 5, 4 of Top 10, 9 of Top 20) are not North American.

A breakdown from 2011/2012 showed 54.286% of players were Canadian, while 20.952% were American. If over 75% of the players in the league are North American and almost 50% of the top scorers are not, statistically, you're more likely to find a top scorer going with a non-North American player (Ignoring a million other factors, point is that kind of viewpoint seems absurd).

It's absolutely ridiculous.

Ovechkin, Tarasenko, Malkin, Kuznetsov, Panarin, Kopitar, Voracek. That's some serious offensive skill coming out of Europe.

Kadri fined $5K for dirtbag gesture:

http://www.tsn.ca/maple-leafs-kadri-fined-5k-for-gesture-1.436546

Quote
The National Hockey League has fined Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri $5,000 for a throat-slashing gesture towards Calgary Flames defenceman Mark Giordano.

Best of all? It was a hard, clean hit. Kadri just got upset because he was on the receiving end and couldn't handle it.

Best of all? It lead to these hilarious attempts at revenge

Some of my FAVORITE all time players are euros
 Pavel Bure and Teemu Selanne

I said I'D rather take a north American player. I'm talking for thy oilers they need a power forward type. A physical presence. Very few euros are physical presence.

Yakupov is biggest buse in a long time.  Anybody want him we just want 1 pylon in return

meh, it was just a gesture. I don't like the guy as much as you all. But it's really not that big a deal, it's more the society we live in today. 10 years ago he would have got nothing for the throat slashing.

For me, it was the fact he made the gesture and then said "you're dead" repeatedly. It's classless and immature, IMO, and there's no need for that kind of behaviour in pro sports. Especially over a nice, clean hit.

He did the same thing in 2010 while part of Team Canada at the World Juniors.

Plenty of All-Star Europeans are a physical presence, let alone any European skater. What are you talking about?

lol.

again I never said there is none, but there is not a lot out there throwing body around or being a power forward.  I know you like to be right 100% of the time and you will argue it until the other person gives up and trust me I give up. LOL.

My 2 cents...

I see what Jersey is saying. You need to mix it up.

Both sides bring skill IMO. I dont think one side is better then the other.

That said... i bet growing up playing hockey on this side of the pond is a tougher style game.
