There is no denying that top SEL team are great, among the best in Europe. And you may even be capable of beating a good KHL team sometime during exhibitions or preseason. But even the Best SEL team would sink in a regular 54 game KHL season from playing against Dynamo, SKA, CSKA, Donbass, Severstal, Lokomotiv, and Torpedo on a regular basis. And thats just the west. I would feel sorry if Frolunda had to go on a trip to hit up Salavat, Ak-Bars, and Metallurg, when everyone is trying to rack up points mid-end season.

SEL teams have good players and solid lines in some cases, but there is a major lack of dept. And I'm sorry, but your SuperElit callups just wouldn't work the same way they do in the KHL.
But you did write

Everybody knows that this years KHL bottom dwellers Riga, Amur, Yugra, and even Vityaz can dust any top Eliteserien team at any given moment.
and that is a complete joke. I'm done with this anyways, if you care to discuss it more we can take it to PMs to not derail the thread more. If you send me anything worthwhile of replying to I will.
