I think Medvedev wants that, get rid of problematic clubs, replace them with financial power-houses, but this won't work and Russian hockey will loose it's identity completely.

Look at all the idiotic rush-decisions they make accepting clubs to KHL/MHL, clubs that can't even finish their inaugural season, and some don't even make it as far as starting it.
Why i for one think it will absolutley work.Loosing vityaz or avto will not lose the leagues indentity it will just make way for more profitable and marketable teams thats all.
