Would be among the worst, bottom 3.

But almost no KHL team makes money (if any do). They run on a sponsorship model, and need big money owners willing to run the team in the red pretty far, indefinitely. It is a different model from NA sports. Not too mention the fact that Anchorage is half the size of Khabarovsk and the logistics of the team (closest team is Khabarovsk at 4700km, compared to Khabarovsk to Moscow, already a stupid amount of distance at 6100km) this has basically 0 chance, IMO.
