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.
Are you sure KHL is actually federational league? Even Finnish League is not. Of course Finland affects in all the possible ways. Anyway the KHL must come from somewhere. If it came from Finland, it would have alot of affect from here. Somebody had to start the league. Europe didin't get anything done good before KHL. Now they are desperately putting up CHL (which doesn't really differ so much from earlier failed projects if we are honest), which they do only because KHL is there and they're afraid.
