Not really, it would depend where you put the team. The Panthers and Steelers already get better attendances than some of the teams currently in the KHL, with the extra funding from the league it would be very viable. But ticket prices would have to be set at the right amount.

However you are partially right, to realise Medvedev's crazy expansion plans the KHL needs to become self-sufficient in the near future, they can't survive off Gasprom and government subsidies forever
