There's probably more Canadians on teams like South Korea and Kazakhstan than GB honestly, from what I see most of the guys are GB natives with couple Canadians (2-3 at most), and even those were low level minor leaguers.

South Korea last year had 6 Canadians; 2 with limited NHL experience
Kazakhstan had 4-5 at least and some of them were guys with 100+ NHL games under their belt (Nigel Dawes, Dustin Boyd and Dallman)
Even 'hockey nation' Belarus have some Canadians

Similar to how 2-3 players in the Romanian NT are Romanian.

the Russian language surpasses all the others of Europe, not only in the breadth of territory over which it rules, but also in its own extent and wealth

They're better than Romanians so I think they simply walked in.

Hungry vs Romney next year will be fun, although hard to decide which team to support

Devils will still probably take Hughes #1, he and Kakko will be compared to for the next 10 years, especially as they will be cross town rivals essentially. Both Rangers and Islanders have some Russian prospects coming through, the ones of the Rangers (Kravtsov and Shesterkin both signed their ELC recent weeks). The Islanders have Sorokin but it seems like he will stay in Russia for the near future
