Now imagine that KHL would find sponsors, in China ect, which would invest at least 0,5 billion per year. Is it comparable with NHL?
After reading a brief article (It's credibility i do not know), it estimated Chelsea won roughly 47 million for their Champions league success. That is an acculumated total of funds for their passage.

I assume the finances of Russian football teams is comparative to their hockey counter-parts?
