In reply to Re: How to create a European Hockey League? posted by Joeri Loonen on 10th October 2003 at 17:52 GMT:
I think the initial phases would need some care to ensure that there weren't any large mismatches such as you describe.
However, I think there is a problem with group based tournaments. How do you fit 3 or 4 rounds of a group based tournament into a team's schedule? At least if you only have one-off games midweek, you are playing in otherwise dead time. But to extend the tournament to make it a true reflection on European hockey and only have weekend group games is too hard on the domestic calendar for me.
