Do you really think it would be better to have 1 or 2 top leagues and the rest of the hockey world is ridiculous **** or do you want to have two top leagues (NHL/KHL) and 5-6 very good other leagues (DEL, Elitserien, SM-liga, NLA, Czech Extraliga, maybe EBEL)????

I mean for me it is no surprise that these ideas come from places like Russia (where KHL is the top league) or places like Slovakia whose league is at a very, very low level compared to other European top leagues. That is incredibly selfish.
I prefere bold part, but it is not reality. Economy is the answer.
