Btw Akhmetov´s friend, Kolesnikov, has his own hockey club, it is called Donbass Donetsk. Why the hell does not Akhmetov invest into Donbass? To club from his city? Ahh, he wants to invest into HC Kosice, a club which he does not care about
1) big IF, agreed
2) who brings money will install own managment, simple
3) unpredictable

I know about financial background of Donbass and Kolesnikov. Akhmetov is passionate about sports and he might find it temtping to invest into hockey club. Sooner or later, Slovak authorities might even encourage him with tax allowance etc. Such an indirect gvt support aint exactly unknown concept in KHL

I never mentioned other Slovak clubs, just Kosice.

never mentioned 3-5 teams. 2 is enough for me.
