That being said, you would have to be delusional to say the NHL doesn't have the best players in the world. Anyone with ANY objectivity can easily see that it's by and large the most talented league in the world.

As I've said before, I wish NA would adopt international ice, but I know that'll never happen.
Would that potentially solve any of the NHL's problems such as concussions/low scoring/boring defensive hockey systems at all? I've never considered that but it intrigues me. Its cool how Belleville plays on Int'l sized ice.
