If the KHL wants to create a division in the far east, they should be looking to massive, major cities like Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong where there are a lot of billionaires with money to play with. Adding a team in each of those cities and putting another in Vladivostok would create a capable 'far east' division and would help to expand and develop hockey in Asia.
The Alaska Aces get 4,777 per game, that wouldn't be the worst in the KHL, would it? I think people in Alaska wouldn't mind seeing a higher quality game, they are kinda isolated from the rest of the US anyway.
