It it stupid to suggest that top European 1st world economies such as Sweden or Finland cant afford to sponsor a team in the 2nd best league in the world. Especially since it is not some obscure sport, but a top national sport in the country.
So when this second wave of expansions joins(and succeeds), I think that many people will want it, or seriously consider it.
You need to check up on the condition of Finnish economy and sports sponsorship before you start making such statements. Though those two aspects are much better in Sweden, the same applies there as in Finland. Fans don't want it. In Finland the only possible candidates, HIFK and Jokerit care enough/too much about their fans to do something so major against their will.
