What about an all-star team from the NHL, and one from the combined leagues of Europe.

That's nowhere near a fair fight though.

Maybe not that hard, but what makes you think that Jokerit played any harder. And even if they did, it's not like they were the best team in Finland last season...

What makes me think Jokerit played harder is that they have a lot more to prove (maybe get noticed by an NHL team)than an NHL team on a trip preparing for a long 82 game season. As well as them playing at home in Finland and trying to appease the hometown fans. Also who wouldn't play hard against some old fellow countrymen and players they have looked up to that play in the best league in the world? Just my opinion though.
