Helsinki is smaller and the fans are much more loyal to their teams. The Helsinki area is barely capable of supporting Jokerit, HIFK and Espoo Blues, there's no room for another team. SM-liiga also announced a new 5 year tv deal with Nelonen, they sure would renegotiate that if SM-liiga clubs left to KHL, leading to the problems I mentioned earlier.
The way you people roll in Finland is to send your best players off to the KHL.
And I don't know how loyal the fans are, but the players couldn't give a rats ass about the rivalries, clearly.
Sorry to be so blunt about it.
