They could basically have their NT-team playing in KHL...as Dinamo Riga once did before big money lured them away.
That is why Stavanger Oilers need big (oil?!) money to get Zucarello and Thoresen because they will draw in the crowds!
1) yes thats true,but you have to understand that these teams will help indirectly-they will increase the popularity of the sport in the respective country (norway,croatia,poland etc.) just like the process is slowly happening in Donetsk.
2) yes,i could imagine them getting Zucarello,but Thoresen? Idk,i think the retched SKA offers him way too much money.
