07:48 AM ET 12.24 | Any KHL vs. NHL rivalry has a new chapter as of this past weekend. The impasse in talks to resolve the NHL lockout is testament to the "egotistical" ambitions of the league's management, the head of the rival KHL hockey league said Sunday. ... The lockout reached its 99th day Wednesday with NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly and players??? association special counsel Steve Fehr in contact but unable to reach a compromise. "No-one knows how the league will behave in his situation," Alexander Medvedev said in comments to the website of the KHL's Kazakh team Barys Astana. "But it's all generally showing how egotistical the NHL is. Financial issues trump the development of the game for them. But at the same time, this will all hit their pockets anyway."

Let me brake it to you nice and easy, Mr. Medvedev: No matter how screwed up the NHL is, the KHL will never come close to be a rival league. 1) We have AEDs and they come with fully charged batteries that work, 2) Our ambulance drivers never come to work drunk. 3) Except for Mike Modano, we will never put our hockey players in anything that resembles a Tupolev and, 4) As much as we despise him, we wouldn't let you carry the Poison Dwarf's jock strap.

KHL head takes shot at 'egotistical' NHL leaders

Comparing the KHL to the NHL is like comparing a rusted, rickety old Lada to a Cadillac.

Still in all I'm just as glad we don't have Vladimir Putin over here 'deciding' things.

Bingo. I'm much more interested in Jr hockey than watching millionaires/billionaires **** at each other. Scary thing - - life is fine without the NHL and I was a serious hockey fan.
