Yah, I can see an equivolent NHL Euro league where professional teams are planted in cities that love hockey and have ownership that would build teams based on Euro players (hell, they could bring in Canadians and Americans if they wanted to pay those guys too) but overall these teams are made up of European talent. They have their season, the NHL North America has it's season. Each league has their own championship (called the Stanley Cup in North America) and the winners go and play one final for the World Cup or the NHL Cup or whatever you want to call it.
