KHL on ESPN3

I thought this was interesting... right now I'm watching a live stream of SKA vs. Lokomotiv on ESPN3 (their internet streaming channel). The commentary is in Russian.

Interesting to see Versus' rival network broadcasting the NHL's rival league. Some gamesmanship going on, perhaps?

Theres not really anything else going on at this time, so ESPN has to put something on. I doubt it has anything to do with VS considering VS doesnt have hockey on at the same time so its not competing. Also lets not forget ESPN has a contract with the NHL to broadcast NHL games in Europe, so they aren't trying to show up the NHL either.

I've seen KHL and AHL and KHL is the second best league in the world, after the NHL.

Pretty much this. They offer as much as they can on there that's not being broadcast nationally somewhere else (unless it's on one of their own channels).

and how pray tell, did you come to that conclusion?
your basing this on what? How many games from the KHL have you seen? How many AHL games have you seen?
Other than a handful of players, the KHL is not that great. Maybe one day, but they have some work to do first. I hate the AHL, you may end u liking it though Scott, who knows? But i really dont think the KHL is better. I could be wrong though.

Your horribly wrong my friend. Do some research (ie. articles from players who've played over there, professional opinions) or just watch a game and you will find this.

Anyhow, wish ESPN 3 would be open to us Canadians!
