There is rumour about finnish KHL team, so good that new arenas are built, but it is OT here
Most arenas being used by any team of significance are pretty modern, even if they come in moderate sizes for the most part(5000-8500). There's not really enough people to support any bigger arenas where the best hockey teams are located in Sweden. None of the #3, #4, #5 or #6 city by population has a team in the SEL.

What's really missing though is a new hockey arena in Stockholm. It's pretty sad how both clubs are using an arena built something like 50 years ago with smaller renovations. But it's a football city, they just built one 50k and one 30k arena like it's nothing. It's a shame they can't build anything of that significance for hockey.
