    KHL vs AHL would make more sense.

    Good. There are already way too many gimmicky turds, i.e.the ASG and the World cup of Hockey.

    I don't see why. They have nothing to lose.

    If they were to find a way to win it be huge for their market perception.

    It wouldn't even be a contest, that's why. Presumably the KHL would want its best players on its team, therefore the NHL would have the same opportunity.

    Here's the NHL All-Star team:

    Draisatl-McDavid-Kane
    Marchand-MacKinnon-Pastrnak
    Panarin-Eichel-Kucherov
    Ovechkin-Crosby-Matthews

    Hedman-Carlson
    Josi-Weber
    Werenski-Jones

    Vasilevskiy
    Rask

    And here's the KHL All-Star team:

    Does it matter?

    Without really knowing it would likely have been an exhibition similar to the annual one where the russian juniors take on North American junior teams each year. It would be like a very good AHL all star team playing NHL teams.

    They’re an inferior league and it would be a bad idea to broadcast exactly how inferior. It’s better to just enjoy what you have. Nothing against them. I know I don’t want to see a college football team play an NFL team, and I love college football.

    It's for the best. Some KHL owner would pay big $$$ to pull a Tanya Harding on the Spittin Chiclets friends.

    AHL to KHL is like KHL to NHL. So, the KHL would have no benefit playing with a lower tier league, and the same goes for the NHL.

    An NHL team couldn't even beat a mid-table team from Switzerland. There's no doubt that KHL could beat the NHL on an an international sized rink.

    I don't think it would be beneficial for the KHL to get beat down by the NHL, so this makes sense.

    eh, we’ve seen at the Olympics that flashy talent doesn’t necessarily equal chemistry. The game might end up closer than people here think.

    It may also be interesting to see the best of the SEL, DEL etc join forces with the KHL for an NHL vs the world game.

    Something like a Summit Series 2021 would be cool to see.

    I wouldn't mind a KHL tour of some sort to play Original 6 teams. Kind of like how russians juniors come to play CHL teams.

    Any KHL team? Or a stacked KHL team?

    And the delta between the KHL and the AHL is a he'll of a lot smaller than the delta between the KHL and the NHL.
