League Difficulty Relative to NHL
Russian Elite League 0.83
Swedish Elite League 0.78
Czech Republic League 0.74
Finland SM-Liiga 0.54
Deutsche Eishockey League 0.52
American Hockey League 0.44
I feel that a big mistake has been done here not taking the different rink sizes in as a variable. The game becomes much different and some players cant play on big ice while others not on small. The AHL plays much the same as the NHL, and when a player moves up and down between those leagues he sure is gonna feel the difference in the quality of the opposition.
