I think a 16-team champions league with 8 NA teams and 8 Euro teams would be more fair. 4 KHL, 1 SEL, 1 SM-liiga, 1 DEL, 1 NLA.

I think there's a good chance that the NHL will expand to 32 teams and have 8 per conference (like the realignment proposal from the NHL). 2 teams per conference from the NHL.
I guess more fair... but 8 NHL teams would increase the already huge odds they haveto win. This is about whose country has the best hockey team... thats it. So give each league an ability to send its best and the worlds best and see who ends up on top.

-NHL hosts games
-Prize Money
-Gives prospects, role players, reserves more chance to show their stuff
- NHL and IIHF working together to grow the game
- Gives more ability to showcase teh WORLDS best talent.
