Will These Leagues Get Off The Ground

from Kommersant,
The board of Russia’s Professional Hockey League (PHL) passed a decision yesterday, November 14, 2005, whereby the League’s status may change from the non-profit partnership to the joint stock company in the near term. Mikhail Margelov, head of foreign relations committee at the Federation Council, is expected to chair the BOD of the new company. This initiative of the PHL could be viewed as a response to proposal to create a Euro-Asian Hockey League (EAHL), which was presented by Federal Sports Agency’s head Vyacheslav Fetisov and backed up by a raft of clubs.
