Would a Single European League Challenge the NHL?

November 20th, 2009 by Jeff Ferris Leave a reply »

This morning, I ventured to ESPN.com to check out last night's scores. As I scrolled down the page I noticed a poll in progress that hasn't yet received a lot of response.

This was the question: Would a single pro league in Europe challenge the NHL?

Now, I'm not much of an authority on European hockey, but the possibility intrigued me. Would a single European professional hockey league provide direct competition for the National Hockey League? 

Would European players be torn between staying on their own continent, relatively close to home, or would the NHL still provide the same appeal as it always has?

I think it's inevitable that there will be an attempt to lure more teams and NHL players into one single league [see KHL]. Take a look at this next article . It may be just the beginning.

I think a major problem could be attendance.

I'd really like to know what you guys think.
