I'm more than aware of the origins of the NHL. Finnish hockey magazine Jääkiekkolehti ran a series of stories on the origins of the NHL. The big difference is that it's origins were local leagues of just about anywhere where they could play hockey with a decent setting. It wasn't A Canadian championship league operating under Hockey Canada. KHL's origins comes from a league operating under Russian federation and still they cannot operate fully without approval from the federation. NHL has never had that link or issue.
