YOU should think about your own words first. English is not a native language for ANY of the KHL teams. Just because latin letters are common for you doesn't mean they are common for me. Maybe in Germany people are ready to give up their own language and culture.
Understandig them? So Klepis is the name? We have enough of that in the NHL where nobody can pronounce a foreign name right. And how could they regarding the spelling of names on the jerseys? But for the NHL English is really a common and native language. So why should we just copy the NHL?
Yes, KHL is an international league and as such it could use the different cultures and languages in style instead of cutting all down to some blunt standard.
