So if you were saying it makes the KHL look better in Slovakia, then I agree, but if you were talking in general, I don't see it.
Lev project aside (seen as russian troyan horse in our latitudes) Slovan is first real club from hockey-relevant country from outside the ex-USSR that joined. Slovan setting an positive example that life in KHL might be good. KHL raising itīs profile from ex-USSR + artificial Lev competition to something more, ex-EE, as an important step in turning into truly an all-european competition. Teams still hesitating could be inspired by Slovan - KHL love story. Etc.
