bold + maybe Spartak

the purpose of nhl is to make money for its owners and 30 teams make more money than 6 or 10. what is the purpose of khl? if it is to create a high quality league that can keep at least a good proportion of the best eastern-european players then an 18 team league serves that goal better than a 28 team league. the territory that the league covers (ex soviet union and ex czechoslovakia) cannot support a larger number of teams that can sustain top-level hockey. even 18 is a stretch.
therefore are almost all NHL clubs in red, great policy.
