People deny it, but I believe that having a team in Norway would be a powerful stimulus to an eventual Swedish entry in the KHL. Norway and Sweden have a huge rivalry in other winter sports, particularly cross country skiing, and it could form a great rivalry for the respective fans in both countries, should they end up in the KHL.
