That is not a business, it is the colonial system of the 18-19th Century. Do the NHL fans like it? Of course, yes, but I do not. And yeah, the European hockey officials are to be blamed as well. Unsurprisingly, they are the loudest opponents of the KHL. If the NHL was such a great business, they would have no problem to pay annually 100-200-300 or more millions of dollars to get all the players they want, but do not need. That is a business. Regarding the KHL. Fine. Look at the status quo of the Russian club hockey in the 1990s & compare it with 2020. See the difference? Because I do see.
