On a broader scale, dilution of talent in all leagues. Does any one really think there are enough quality players in Europe that a teams in Milan or Gdansk would be any better than the Ottawa Senator 20 years ago? If they manage to draw star players from other European leagues by overpaying them, than would in turn dilute those team or leagues of talent and then you'd end up with lesser competition in both the KHL and other leagues.
KHL has existed 5 years there cannot be significant improvement because you cant raise young new hockey players in 5 years.
