Do you think we would have a project like KHL if Russia was 100% democratic and there were no rich oligarchs?

That's why I hope more teams from EU countries join the league, so it can develop to a better product!

-edit-

When are new teams actually officially announced? Is there a limit for new teams? I mean we have 4 possible new teams:

- Gdansk (great new arena, hockey needs a big boost in Poland, money could be a problem)
- Medvescak (if they play in Arena Zagreb that would be perfect, enthusiastic fans, money could be a problem)
- Milan (don't see them joining because of lack of money and fans and modern arena sry)
- Sochi (new arena, no hockey history, no fans nah...)
What about that norway team stavenger oilers?
