The last part is a sarcastic joke, but I do get the impression from Czech media that Czech hockey fans are slowly getting used to accept the idea that Sparta Prague might join the KHL one day... whereas a year ago, any such idea would be immediately dismissed as outrageous. If Lev Prague manages to change the Czech people's attitude towards the KHL, then it would indeed be "Mission Accomplished" for Lev Prague, even if it only were a one-year project.
