Just imagine, now guys from Norway play for swedish clubs because of better league. What would happen if Stavanger joined KHL? Many of them would sign at home. Of course, we have to consider long-term deals with swedish clubs. Still, it would hit Elitserien.. therefore logical step as you wrote

Are there any real steps? Like Gdansk did...
The Norwegian team gave the Russians their toughest opposition in the 2012 WC. I totally agree that it would be a big impetus to Sweden entering a team in the league, which in turn would no doubt prompt entry of a Finnish team right behind.
