Maybe the whole question is the word "strong". Having a strong latvian league would offcourse be preferable if it meant more possibility for more Latvian players/prospects to play against good competition, than Dinamo Riga can do alone in the KHL.
Still KHL and a good Dinamo Riga is still preferable to a
weak Latvian league
, since then the best Latvian players would go abroad anyway.
So is a strong latvian league even possible......are their finances and quality players enough to have several strong clubs?
