I see 2 main restrictions (excluding political) to the KHL expansion:
1. What is the maximum quantity of teams in the KHL as well as in any other sports league? I think it doesn't exceed 30-32.
2. Travel problem. It would be not easy for KHL players to constatntly rotate from Prague to Khabarovsk, Vladivostok. Players say the problem is not with trips, but with time zone change. As of now, teams play in Khabarovsk and fly away at the same day to diminish this effect. But what if after Khabarovsk they would have to play a bunch of games in Vladivostok, Tokyo and somewhere else (Alaska)? I think it would be too wearing out.
