But of course I would only welcome clubs from Norway and Denmark in KHL, as well as Gdansk, Milan or Zagreb. I'm not against anyone, if there are normal support in arena, normal TV picture coming to see games and team with a heart. And I think in this respect this year's expansion with Donbass, Lev and Slovan has been real success story, after all 2 teams are in the play-offs and the 3rd one was fighting till the end.
