Unfortunatly i did not find a link in english, so this is from a swedish newspaper.
But it basicly states that the headchief of the NHL refs, Stephen Walkom wants to pick the best european refs over to the NHL. Walkom also states that is not some sort of excange system, He wants a permanent solution. The headcief of Swedish refs, Peter Andersson says that this is something he will support.
IMO this is the last thing that the "new NHL" needs. I dont know about other euro refs but the Swedish refs SUCKS BIGTIME !!. They are a disgrace and they can absolutely ruin a hockeygame. I hope this thing will never happen
