And as far as the impact on domestic leagues goes, I cannot see the negativity of having a KHL club in your country, the roster of which will (hopefully) become the main target of the young players (because of better money and higher play level) instead of a NHL team's roster.
This is pretty much spot on.

I don't get this whole domestic league issue. Would you rather have your domestic league be the 4th, 5th, 6th best league in Europe or the equivalent of the AHL to the Best league in Europe?
