Why? The only way for countries such as Latvia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and even Slovakia to have this high caliber hockey clubs is in the KHL. Without the KHL the level of hockey in these countries would be even lower.

Croatia is a different matter. It is not really a hockey country and it will have to build a team almost entirely on imports. We will see how the KHL will change the situation in a long run.
