It's pretty clear that the NHL/North American hockey has some sort of rivalry with Europe. Why allow them to play for it if they don't have to?
The only league I see playing for it is a Canadian league, such as the CHL.
They have said that they would only award it to a team that they felt was the best in the world, so I can't see the CHL getting a look.
If it happened, I'd guess that the Calder Cup would take a season off and the AHL would play for Lord Stanley's hardware. But I'd love Euro teams to compete for it.
