Not really, a combined Nordic economy would make us the 10th largest in the world, pretty far from what you could call one of the most powerful "countries".

In time an expansion or a new European league will happen I don't think there a scenario down the line where it won't, and it should start with a Sweden-Finland cooperation expanding to Germany, Switzerland etc. Though as mentioned a Champhions League of Hockey is a great way to begin...

No, it's not about hating Russia, it's about facts and knowledge. Russia is one of the most corrupt countries on the planet. FACT. Get over it, or better yet get involved to change things.
