Agree. Hasn't it been the same before every tournament lately, but then they make an agreement either way? The KHL might not be all that in comparison with the NHL, but they have presense in Asia and expantion plans like Facebook. South Korea has a couple of ok teams as well, and probably a target for the KHL in due time.

Here's the NHL preview:
