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.
Population of California: 38 million
GDP of California: $38,956 (so in absolute terms larger than the GDP of Russia)
Population Texas: 26 million
GDP of Texas: $36,484
Population of the Russian Far East: 6 million with the largest city having a pop. size of <600k.
GDP: see above
There's no market for another team in the Russian Far East. Hell, there's no market for a single profitable team of this level there.
