I see attitude both ult and zorz

I think KHL will be independent from IIHF after Sochi. It is not possible to work within current "order" for KHL. Until Sochi games it is understandable (to work within status quo) because of agreement with FHR not to make major changes until 2014.

I would not be suprised if KHL worked according to Suiss law later. Maybe not. Similar like Nord Stream and South Stream are based in Zug
Relationship to EU law is important.

zorz said it is not good if 2 leagues control whole hockey world. Yes, agree. Nobody says that KHL would behave like NHL (not allowing players to WC due to play-offs or so). Look, KHL suggested to play WC during february where all best of best are (also NHLers). If KHL did not care about international hockey/NT/WC, it would not suggest this. KHL would simply create an organisation independent from FHR, start RS in September, finish RS in April, finish play off in June, not allowing players to WC. But, KHL does not want it. KHL wants to change current status quo.

Current status quo, WC in May, is out-of-date. Why? Hockey in Europe does not work like this anymore. You dont have national leagues which finish season on April. At least one league would like to finish season later. Accidentally it is best league, which will expand in near future.Current status quo must be change and I am sure it will
