I was referring to these IIHF statistics

Obviously a nordic league would be more realistic than joining the KHL imo. People in Sweden consider the KHL to be a strange corrupted league. Although a Nordic conference would leave old rivalries intact, most fans here wouldn't want to see their team play Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod or Traktor Chelyabinsk at any time, and they would definitely not pay higher ticket prices to do so. In sweden NHL has a large following, the KHL on the other hand is only watched by hardcore hockey fans.

Swedes like to think that whatever we do, we do it "better". I am not saying that the KHL necessarily has a poor, corrupted organization, but that's what most people here think, so the probability of ANY swedish team joining the KHL is about 0.001%.
