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.
But in football we've got 20+ pro leagues
alone. And the prize money is something to worth playing for.
I see your point but still those are marketing games for NHL-teams in their pre-season. What did they had to play against Zurich and Metallurg? Not to get injured.
And I prefer European hockey to NHL but I just don't see it happening, at least not as a transatlantic tournament.
