Franchises take time to develop.
This has to be one of the worst analogies i have ever read. Haha. McDonalds franchises have low costs, high brand awareness and huge sales.

Hockey teams have HUGE costs. I think comparing the average salary of a hockey player in the KHL/NHL to what Fat Hobblin Harry makes in a Fast food Restaurant ... yeah

As long as wealthy Russian businessmen and the government continue to fund the KHL, it will be fine. Can't last forever of course. The question is, in 30-40 years time, will A) the KHL be a large consumed and watched sport in Russia B) Will the average Russian make enough relative capital to pay prices like we see in some NHL cities.

Difficult to know. The Russian economy will inevitably grow for sometime, but of course a crash is likely given how its structured (But we can say the same for all economies really given the nature of the system).
