The President of the Kontinental Hockey League, Alexei Morozov, spoke about the holding of matches between the KHL and NHL teams.
“We interact with the NHL, we conduct official correspondence. We have plans to sit down with them live in mid-October and have a full talk.
They showed interest in our idea. They said, let's discuss together. Therefore, when we talk, we will tell you, ”Anastasia Dragomir, Sport24 correspondent, reports Morozov.
Alright so this is coming from the president of the KHL to a Russian news source. So as far as the percentages that you'll see a "BREAKING NEWS: The NHL and KHL are officially scheduling games against each other" headline go…I'd still put that close to 0%. At this point it feels more like when you run into an acquaintance while you're out getting coffee and they mention how it's been too long since you've seen each other and you'll have to get together soon. You politely reply "absolutely", fully knowing damn well that you have zero intentions of actually getting together with that person.
