Hockey needs more KHLs

Jeff Koopman, Campbell River, B.C.

The Kontinental League may not be good for the NHL, but the KHL is good for hockey.

I don't mind the NHL being the top league in the world, but the NHL should not be the only major hockey league.

I think that if the NHL had a monopoly it would hurt hockey overall. It would be good for hockey if there were a few a KHL-caliber leagues.

Maybe one in Northern Europe, one in Central/Western Europe and one in Eastern Europe.
