It's a completely different world the KHL. Medvescak had by far the highest attendance in EBEL every year, the arenas and everything were at best second class all over this league. Now Croatian hockey gets media attention allover Europe. That is a big difference.

I hope enough kids want to play hockey when Medvescak plays KHL so that someone will finally invest money in hockey in Croatia.
That would require hockey to get any media attention (outside of the World Championships) in Europe in general.
