Ya, and?........ the NHL morphed from & was essentially the NHA; the NHA morphed from & was essentially a combination of the OPHL, Federal Hockey League & others. The point stands Jussi. There are parallels & similar examples to the early days (and to some extent analogous to the WHA, WCHL & PCHA) of the development & growth of top tier professional hockey in North America to the KHL & its ambitions in becoming the best professional league throughout Europe, Scandinavia & Russia. Its not "wrong to compare them" at all.
