believe me. it has nothing to do with popularity of sport, but money and club´s management. Look, hockey in Ukraine is marginal, but Donbass has 2-3times bigger budget than Slovan. Croatia is destination no.1 for KHL, Bratislava is just a place where KHL is played, nothing special. Praha is destination no.1 for KHL on the other hand, and has budget cca 19-20 mil euro.
