And what? Like I said before US also has CHL(central hockey league). these two leagues are located in north america, so forget about them. If there is any team outside Russia in this league, it is a continental league that unites 2 or more teams from europe.
PS CHL in canada - Canadian Hockey League
CHL in US - Central Hockey League
CHL in Russia - Continental Hockey League...different names but the same acronym...dont see any problem...
OK, "Perezhogin is suspended by the NHL" is unambiguous. "Perezhogin is suspended by CHL" is. "What? He is already playing in the CHL? Wasn`t he playing in Russia last year?" Confusion. Eyebrows raised (why did they call their league like one of ours). There`s a reason why Bolshoi has not been renamed La Scala. If you what a league to be known in NA, you don`t call in the CHL.
Farjestad, Karpat, Salzburg, Eisbaren Berlin, and probably Jokerit are to play in the KHL next season. Article states that first four teams have confirmed they are ready to play in the new league.
However, the representatives of the KHL refused to give the comments regarding probability of those teams' participating...
Hold, hold, hold. There are absolutely no references at the source, and sports.ru is known as not the most reliable resourse. At least wait for official confirm. I for example haven't seen a single mention of Farjestad going to RSL in Swedish media.
here is more information...Representatives of Karpat are going to come to Moscow to discuss their participation in the new league. Other teams have sent text applications. All the teams will have to quit playing their national championships.
