That ruins any chance my Flyers had of being the top team in Scotland, really looking forward to Drew coming to Fife! Probably the closest I'll come to a Red Wings game!!

Wow, considering the British league is somewhere between the ECHL and AHL, he should absolutely tear the place up. If the lockout is still on in November I might just be making the trip to Nottingham to watch him play...
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

isn't that even a bit of a stretch? i was thinking that my local CHL team brought in someone from the EIHL and they had dominated there and was just a 2nd/3rd liner in the central hockey league.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

The British players are considerably below the ECHL level but certainly all the players I can think of from NA are all ECHL standard with some having decent AHL experience. Drew should tear it up.

Scored his first goal tonight, from what I here he's still finding his game. Going to see him next week so we'll see how he fares then!

Drew got an assist in his 1st game, scored in his 2nd game and got the GWG with 37 seconds left in his 3rd game. Settling in quite well and is a big fan favourite!

Here is the highlights from his GWG game

Hopefully our Wings playing so well overseas will draw some more interest to the Wings once they come back home.

At any rate, I'm learning about a lot of places with leagues that I would never have expected thanks to this lockout! Maybe it's not so bad for the game of hockey overall if it lets people like me discover new leagues.

I started watching the video and noticed that something was weird about it. I was unable to put my finger on it until about halfway through the video when I realized what it was... The clapping.
The only sport for which I've seen spectators clap is golf. I guess that's Scotland for you.
