I mean two groups of clubs - one group wants to create closed league like NHL, KHL, another wants to have relegation round like Sweden. Then you have Usti and Chomutov which wants to promote. No agreement CSLH - APK. So, czech hockey community is not united as sweden. So KHL has easier route to expand here.
Slovan wanted to join czech league to sold out arena regularly and play better league. Czech clubs refused it, so KHL was chosen as future plan. The same story, slovak hockey community is not united. Košice, Slovan maybe others wanted to join czech league, others can not efford it.
