Professional hockey absolute can (and does) work in Europe, but we're clearly not where it's truly competitive with the N.A. market.
Jester I do not have all the answers for you. You mentioned corruption? It exists everywhere where money can be made. You mentioned reforms, sure. Nothing is perfect.

Is it impossible to cerate a big league out of little league in Europe and Russia? It takes one man with vision, it won't be perfect for a while but it is very possible.
