i dont think any players in the US or even owners, give european players enough credit they have caught up to this, and with all these players jumping over there it proves a point, that europe is on our tail, maybe its time to let them into the NHL or the NFL or NBA they have caught up like it or not, we have to find a way to make it one big league.

That would be insane with numerous great games like that or have two separte legues and have the winners from the eruope side and the american side face off.

Yeah, having an actual world league just makes sense, look at basketball, the USA got their collective bottoms handed to them...

The biggest problem with a world hockey league, besides travel, is the dramatic difference in the style of play. Not to mention the ice size. The US game is on a smaller rink and much more physical. The European style is a skating game with the large sheet of ice.

I personally think it would be awesome. Have a North America league and a European league. Have inter league games during the year, and handle the playoffs like the other major US sports.
