You expect to see discussions on an actual Nordic league, but instead the first half of the thread revolves around a paranoid Russian KHL promoter ("you don't want to join KHL? why you hate Russia!?") while the second half, what is this I don't even, now it's a Canadian KHL promoter...

I guess we already had the Nordic league discussion in 2008,9,10, whatever. Swedes don't wanna play Helsinki and Finns don't wanna play AIK. Russians want everyone to join the KHL.

KHL presents plan with 64 teams:

Quote:
He sees the KHL’s expansion to consume all of Europe, with one KHL Conference in and around Russia and a European Conference with a Scandinavian Sub-Conference (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway) and a Central European Sub-Conference (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, France, Italy, Great Britain, Netherlands, Belgium)

Medvedev wants this league to be operational by 2013/2014 – or as a second-best option 2014/2015 – but of course the ramifications are massive as it would re-draw the map of all of the top leagues in Europe. It is a bold vision, to be sure, but one marred by uncertain ideas and structure.

And here is an article about a panel discussion regarding this.

It highlights one of the big issue that I have brought up. Club rivalries within the domestic leagues.

One of the biggest issue for me is the tax diffrence in countries. Nordic countries will never have a chance to compete on this if it's suppose to be playoffs with Russia, Switzerland and so on.

But we might be able to only have a nordic league. But then i rather just have the Swedish one to be honest.

Calling it a beer league almost seems mean to beer leagues, because this might be even worst than a regular NA beer league.

Why would 4200 people attend a beer league game? because it's "their" team, they will support it until they die, no matter what tier the team plays in.
To be honest, you can't really count that since it's one game every year. Look the attence number on the rest.

Not saying it's wierd that it's so low but don't come here and think "Bajen Fans" got big support in their hockey.
