Well. KHL is seen more positive every year in the rest of Europe already. You cannot expect Americans or Canadians to say they think KHL is like the European NHL because the NHL is sooooooooooo much better than any other league from most North Americans POV.

I am quite activly looking around what efforts are there being made to get ice hockey a better position in the sports world and whenever a Canadian or American comes by there is nothing but arrogance towards other people's work like "Japanese on skates? Is this a comedy movie?" despite Japan having been a regular Olympics and WCs participant for decades.

Off course not all North Americans are like this but you often find comments where you see that the people cannot even imagine that you can live in Russia or any other place in Europe and have a good life. This is really frustrating at times. Last thing I read was "as if any Canadian or American would dream of playing in Russia". Says it all...
