I see you, but what is better for swedish hockey? 1 To lose one or more club for KHL? 2 Or to lose all good players who would play in Gdansk, Oslo, Helsinki, Kopenhagen, Hamburg ... just an example. You know, it is not coincidence that rumours of joining clubs are from these countries. IMO KHL does not want swedish club anymore, it is enough to create clubs in Norway, Finland, Poland (negotiatons/luring in progress) etc which will sign best players from Elitserien.. Would be a problem for swedish players to play for norwegian etc club if get paid much higher? I dont think so
