An NHL Europe League?

A few days ago, I posted a topic about a new Russian Hockey League. Here are more details what the league may look like. from the Russian Hockey Digest,
A counterweight to the NHL could emerge in Eastern Europe next year. Director of the State Sports Agency of Russia Vyacheslav Fetisov, an Olympic champion, NHL Hall of Famer and a two time Stanley Cup winner, decided to make the difference in the hockey world and came up with a new project that could materialize into a new hockey league that would unite the best teams of the post-Soviet countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia and Kazakhstan. It looks like a huge gamble to many, but Vyacheslav Fetisov is sure it’ll work out and take Russian hockey to the next level. Russian Hockey Digest is offering a review of what’s been happening and how the project has been developing ever since it was mentioned in the media for the first time.
