Long story short: Too much parity. NHL is the Champions League of Hockey already, and KHL is the UEFA Cup, if you will.

This is way toooo close minded. As I said ZSC beat Metallurg AND Chicago. And both played with their best lineup (e.g. Kane played). Minor Teams will always be motivated as hell when playing against NHL / KHL team.
So you could say champions football league is ridiculous since only clubs from England, Germany or Spain and perhaps Italy are even able to win the competition, bad leagues like Switzerland, Belgium, Greece etc. shouldn't be allowed.
But in reality their part of the game, their the ones that make groupstage interesting. They're never underestimating the big clubs which is why they sometimes kick out favourites.
