I don't always consider Russians as Euro.....but if you do count them sure whatever.
Well, I guess the Siberian part of Russia lies in Asia, but the Russian part of Russia is definitely situated in Europe. :|
The day Russia joins the EU is the day I'll call them European. :lol:
OK, but than Hischier isn’t European either, as Switzerland is outside of the EU as well. :drink:

I stupidly assumed that by Euros you meant players from Europe. My bad.

But in that case only four Euro players have gone first overall, so it’s really too few to build any kind of statistics on.
Since you live on the other side of the pond, I guess this is a case of terminology being somewhat cultural.

I can't think of anyone that I know here in North America who would consider Russians to be European.....they're Russians. Maybe that would be different if I was talking to people under the age of 30, however, for my generation, Europe stopped at the Russian border: The old Soviet Union.

I get that in terms of continental geography the majority of Russia's population is in Europe.
Well, when it comes to geography, I tend to use geographical terms. :drink:

Which is also why I think the name CONCACAF makes no sense whatsoever.
The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football.

Now, the Caribbean and Central America are parts of North America, so it all makes no sense.
It’s like if UEFA would call itself the Union of European, Balkan and Scandinavian Football Associations; the concepts of the Balkan and Scandinavia are implicit in the concept of Europe.
Just like Central America and the Caribbean are implicit in the concept of North America.
Yes, Mexicans are North Americans. Everything north of the Panama Canal is.

So why not just rename Concacaf CoNAFA; the Confederation of North American Fotball Associations?
It would still cover the same geographical area and would make a lot more sense.

Central America is part of the North American Continent. There are only seven continents.
Vasco Núñez de Balboa was the first European to cross North America (in Panama).
He claimed all the lands next to the pacific for Spain.
That’s why BC was considered Spanish territory until the Nootka crisis.
We are all Jim Benning.

Well, they ARE Central Americans, but Central America is the Southern part of North America.

Africa
Antarctica
Asia
Europe
North America
Oceania
South America

These are the continents.
There are no other continents.

Russia is part of Europe.
Israel is part of Asia.
Egypt is part of Africa.
Central America is part of North America.
Three fifths (60%) of the world’s population live in Asia.

At times it gets confusing; Israel, Turkey and Australia all participate in the Eurovision Song Contest.
In FIFA World Cup qualification, Israel counts as Europe and Australia as Asia. But, yeah.

Travelling through the US to Belize on a one way ticket, US immigration stopped me after examining my Belize CA Work Permit. The officer claimed to have never heard of Belize California and wondered under what authority they granted work permits.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

It was more likely due to the wild staring eyes and knee length beard

Come now. There is only Oceania, Eastasia, Eurasia, and some disputed parts if North Africa. Making up 5 continents, if you can add correctly.

As for the topic, the big 3 will go to Draisaitl, Vasilevskiy, and Makar.

I'm good with it just to troll Leafland. And Jim Gregory was a terrible GM, I cannot believe they have an award named after him.

Nah, the line gets drawn by cartographers.

Probably using ArcGIS software.

But more importantly, when is the Awards Ceremony?
