This is why I said, significant teams. Juji left very early, just like Gera, because they were truly outstanding talents - ie standing out. Normal talents? Elek and Lazar went East - so that is exactly the opposite of good - and both are still suffering the consequences. Czvitk. went to Belgium and failed, because of all the NB1 faults discussed. That is my point - western leagues do not care much for HU foci and players, because NB1 's level is unconvincing for them. Unless a truly outstanding (and still sufficiently young) talent, they will not reach there.They do not have time to "unlearn" bad habits.
Look at Jozsi - I am almost sure that a good part of teh reason why the new coach is not keeping him is the prejudice against NB1. And, who knows, seeing the effects of NB1. As Jozsi himself said - the speed, the speed of the game/decision-making/movement is why he wants to stay, why this is an advancement, no matter if German nb1 or nb2.
Oh, but i really hope Jozsi will find an alternate club, maybe Benelux. He deserves it, and is clearly a plus for any club of that level.
