I support your arguments. I like it. Tell me why swedish clubs can not keep their best players until 23-25 years? Be aware that NO KHL team signs these category of swedish guys. All of them are leaving for NHL. Is KHL a threat? No. I want european clubs to keep majority of their best players at least until such age. I dont want Finns to play AHL at the age of 18-23. It is waste of time for them. You will never reach this goal with having weak european domestic leagues or Champions league. Never.
Dont use guys like Zibanejad or Vatanen as players who play at home until 20-23 or so. They are under contract with NHL club, they can leave every summer... swedish club have no chance to keep them. It does not work in KHL.
If your club joins KHL, it can keep such guys. Of course, not every club can play KHL.. many clubs will complain. Look at America, there is NHL and AHL. Why not make such model in Europe? KHL as no.1 and domestic leagues as developing leagues. Nowadays these domestic leagues are developing one as well, nothing would change.. only a few swedish clubs would play better league. Rest would remain to play developing league as today.
