I'm going to guess most NFL teams would demolish a CFL team.

The NFL vs CFL is like NHLers playing some low ranked top tier European team

They will also zamboni the ice half way through your session. So it'll be all good the whole time.

I think the best part for us was parking in the underground and changing in the changing room. You don't get the Canucks change room, but you get to change in the same rooms as the away teams.

we had a staff tourney so we had the zamboni out after every game almost.

FYI, an international American Football championship exists, and has been played every 4 years since 1999. The US has won the last two since joining that championship in 2007, and beat the shit out of Canada 50-7 in the finals last year. Keep in mind that the international US team fields players who were pretty much undrafted coming out of college, and play in European semi-pro leagues.

tl;dr: a "true" world championship does exist, but it's pretty lopsided (although Japan did go double OT vs the US in 2007).

There needs to be a champions league of hockey. A mini-tournament for the winner of each of the leagues like the NHL, KHL, Swedish Elite League, German Elite League, Swiss, whatever.

They obviously could. There's a reason the NFL salary cap is at $120 million, and the CFL salary cap is at $4 mill.

that would definitely be cool. but it would probably always end up NHL - KHL - Swedish elite league for 1-2-3. altho it would be hard to get behind any team when like 5 of them are foreign and one is the bruins.

Idk, I'm sure some ahl teams could beat the ducks at the start of the season. Nothing was going their way. I guess what I'm saying, they could prob beat an nhl team that was having a bad day

lol salary caps have nothing to do with skill

There's something called being overpaying and underpaying. I'm sure you can tell which category CFL is under

Agreed, but if you've ever watched a good amount of NFL games you could see the difference in playing level. I'd take the Colts over the BC Lions

Don't forget the fact that CFL only has up to 3rd downs

Trade deadline in a few weeks.. you guys hear/watch any legit rumours flying around? lol
last one i heard from a buddy was Perry going to Vancouver LOL... i'm sure that's not legit..

my top wish list would be Weber or Suter...that would solidify our D for the playoffs and eat up a lot of ice time..
