I think it's better to have a PHL team than a VHL team if they have the MHL team for the U21s (or what is the upper age limit at now?). Mature players if they aren't prospect and need to be sent down for a conditioning stint or whatever, at least they're in Ukraine and can be called up quickly, and not have to deal with the VHL's insane travel
Would VHL be a bad thing? PHL can still be used with VHL team around. Best players from PHL can move to VHL team which can be like an all star team of Ukraines. This way players are climbing one step at a time rather than trying to make the big jump from PHL -> KHL. Yes travel may be bad.
