They are an anchor to a new market for the KHL and are in a region of Russia that is growing. Few teams are as important to the KHL as Amur. Why would you even say this ****?

I thank to VladNYC to sum it up. I wrote this milion-times here, pointless to repeat the same idea/vision every second day.

Far-East can become high-developed hub of Russia. Therefore you need Amur. KHL is not only about bussiness, to colect teams to make money. KHL is also about growing the game in Russia (mainly). And? Where is hockey under/not-developed in Russia? Far East. You need LA Kings to develop hockey in California, Dallas to develop Texas hockey, Amur to develop Far East hockey. Maybe we can find another reasons for Amur, but these are basic.
