To those defending Slovak and Czech teams. There's obviously a structural problem as teams are leaving for the EBEL as well.
KHL wanted to expand to Sweden, AIK case, but it did not work because domestic league/federation was strong enough to protect its interests. It is easier for KHL to expand into Central Europe. Slovakia and Czech rep have trouble with domestic leagues. Czech clubs. If KHL have slovak, czech clubs it will make pressure for geman clubs. Then german KHL club wil make pressure for suiss and swedes/finns clubs. At least I see this scenario
