No need to try to start an entirely new league to compete against the great club teams of Europe. Just have the champions of each league play each other ten or twenty times a year. I wanna see a rivalry of teams between countries! Like TPS Turku vs. Frolunda, Moscow Dynamo vs. HC Lugano, etc. Not the last-minute thrown-together play of line-ups in the world championships. I'm thinking every year, as breaks during their regular season schedules... but this year would be especially sweet,... even if only as a tourney.
