I don't think so. The Swedes are always very alarmed when KHL teams sign all their top players. This trend would only continue with the Stavanger Oilers playing in KHL. Not only Norwegians would play in this team but also a lot of other top talent that is lost for Elitserien then. Same would be the case with Gdansk who for sure would sign lots of foreigners.
