In America (
you know, the place the entire world would love to live in
) there really shouldnt be too much issue with the KHL. And Canada? Forget it. You think a Canadian kid wants to leave Canada and play in a entirely different League? They WORSHIP Hockey in Canada.
I think fringe players/role players might be a problem for the NHL to keep but I really just see 36+ year olds jetting off for that last big payday in the KHL or EU League.
Dont stress. Not now atleast. Ill worry about this when we cross that bridge.
But nice article. Well written. I enjoyed the read.
Say what? Lol, I think things have changed a little sincethe 17th/18th century, and the years after WWII. There is even color TV in Europe now
