The Champions Hockey League is a new ice hockey league slated to launch for the 2008-09 season, which will also be the 100th anniversary of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF), which will run the league. It will include the best teams in European ice hockey. The financial reward for progressing to the CHL Group Stage will be a portion of the 16.9 million Swiss francs that will be distributed evenly between the teams with a 1,000,000 Swiss franc bonus going to the winner, the largest monetary reward ever given in any European ice hockey competition. The Champions Hockey League will replace the IIHF European Champions Cup, the current competition for Europe's top ice hockey teams. The IIHF European Champions Cup's highest trophy, the Silver Stone Trophy, will also most likely be the top trophy for the CHL.So, what do you think? Is CHL stronger than the NHL?
