So if the current NHL players in Europe are tantamount to scabs, what were the North American "imports" to begin with? All they do is take away jobs from otherwise deserving (but not quite good enough) Russian, Czech, German, Swedish, Finn, Swiss and even British players. But league rules allow it, and they win their jobs on merit. Just like the current locked-out players; just like the Euros who have been taking NHL jobs from Canadians and Yanks for 20 years.
