A Copenhagen or Jutland team could join SEL/Allsvanskan or DEL (we have there each an all-purpose building that can house 10-15.000 people), but only if its economically viable and the current economic climate is not. That team also have to be stacked with home-coming NHL stars to make the initial press and fan push themselves for a seat "to see the elephant". Joining a KHL filled with faraway teams will look like an insane economic gamble..since you cant survive on your own fans alone...you will need money from a lot of visiting fans to earn enough money!
Tbh I wouldn't want to see the current Danes leave the NHL but outside of them there isn't much depth. I agree the team needs a certain degree of success maybe they can start off with a higher number of imports than regular teams and to begin with it would largely be comprised of Swedish and perhaps Finnish players.
