Nobody has mentioned yet that there is an EU law which gives residents of all member states the 'freedom of movement.' This explains why the Malmo - Copenhagen border is so easy to cross, and you can literally drive from France to Germany for example and there would just be a sign saying you had crossed the border. The only country that gets funny about it is the UK, but I suppose that's because we're an island, technically you only need ID to be allowed on a plane to go somewhere within the EU but they get pissed off if you don't have your passport.
So due to this it would only really be impractical having to travel to many different countries for the Russians, but they haven't had any problems with travelling to Latvia which is an EU member so it could probably be easy.
I can't see a Swedish or Finnish team joining the KHL though, there's just no need with the high standard of their leagues
