It is not fair compare Sweden and Russia. Why? Because swedish leagues are DIRECTLY connected with NHL system of development (transfer agreement, loans etc). KHL and its developing leagues are not.
Which is why creating a transfer agreement would greatly benefit both sides. They are doing more damage then good by not coming to terms, many top prospects are leaving. They need to see the big picture and what is more important here.
