As a poster who is very much 'pro-Europe', I'll say this much...

Despite all the obvious difficulties/problems/whatnot this potential project would have, IMO there's been a HUGE improvement concerning the knowledge and interest on European hockey during the 6-7 years I've been around HoH (active or less active). For example, about 5 years ago a concept like "Mikhailov-Petrov-Kharlamov" didn't really mean anything here to the North American posters. Maybe it's been vice versa too; I've certainly learned a bunch, even though still not an expert on NA hockey history by any means.

Maybe the heavily biased people, if there are such (well, hands up, who's not at least a little biased), would more or less balance each other out. I'm certainly not suggesting any hockey quizzes that one would have to pass in order to participate (). But maybe the voting should somehow be made so 'difficult' that only those who are really interested/committed to the project would bother to go through with it. But heck, what do I know really?
