In Slovakia almost everyone was against KHL and so it was in Czech Republic but now with Slovan and Lev being a good hockey product and having made the playoffs in their first season people start to respect the league and see the advantages of having KHL hockey available in their countries.

Doesn't have to come this way in Sweden but it could be off course.

My favourites from Sweden for a KHL franchise would be Malmö Redhawks. I mean nobody would miss them in Elitserien anyway, right, as they are too dumb to get back into the league for years now.
