08:18 AM ET 12.19 | Though his agent has since said the comments "completely misrepresented Kyle's experience in Finland," Kyle Turris sure didn't sound grateful to have found a job there. For perspective, on the day of the interview the sun rose in Oulu just after 10 a.m. and quickly set shortly after 2 p.m. On top of the four hours of sunlight, it was also minus-20 C. "I'm going stir crazy over here." ... Although North America will never be mistaken for its culinary prowess like France or Italy, Turris quickly found out that it can get worse. "The food here is awful," he explained. "On the road, we eat at truck stops. ABC truck stops. I'm not kidding. We file out of the bus and head off beside the highway for a buffet truck stop pregame meal. It's ridiculous."

After being treated to a Cam Barker thread the other day, preceded by a thread about some devils player I have never heard of...we are now treated to yet another draft bust thread.

lmao...this thing is funny as hell....Turris you and your agent shouldve inquired about everything, you knob....blame yourself for not researching.

Right? You'd think some of these jamoke's would have done their homework before deciding to head overseas to play. They just leave all up to their agents.
