I have a tremendous respect for European hockey, what would the NHL be without all the Swedes, Russians, Czechs, Finns?

I watch a lot of KHL, SEL, SM-Liiga and CZE extraliga and enjoy it very much, sometimes even more than NHL hockey.
They are not as good, let alone better. But they're close enough not to call Canada's loss against any of those teams 'an upset'.
