Just to correct you. All series play "Best of 7", even 1st round. Yes, first idea was to play only "Best of 5" in 1st round, but KHL finally adopted classic "Best of 7" in 1st round. Maybe your sources did not remark this change. Generally it does not matter, I share your point of view. There must be balance among leagues and NT. Problem is that KHL is new league and expands, has more and more teams (complicated schedulling) .. and status qou in relationship leagues-NT (WC) is violated. Before KHL it was almost ideal, NHLers were only a few days after regular season when WC starts, 1st round ended. Yes, best players not available due to playoffs in NHL. Europeans league finished a few days before WC, so no problem. But KHL is special, it has 26 clubs, needs to play 54 games+play-off since september to mid-april. Plus EHT breaks during season .. no room for more games, KHL can not play more regular season games (lets say end RS in mid-end March or early April) because play-off will not finish before WC and we dont want PO to be played as Best of 5 or so. Only solution for KHL is to abandon EHT and most important thing is to reschedulle WC. Playing KHL playoff (finals of conference and GC finals) after WC in june is nonsense. I am curious what will happen in next years
