So, KHL had 6 spots in march 2013, Medvescak and Admiral as done projects, Milan on radar (who knows?) and Jokerit as possible done deal, maybe some german club/s in negotiating process (?), talks with Red Bulls. Poland is not priority for KHL, Germany and Finland is/was. So, KHL turned down Olivia. If Olivia appeared in 2010, KHL would maybe accept the club, but not now. I dont say Olivia is failed project forever, I dont know, but I am sure there are other priorities - Germany, Sweden, Red Bulls and I am not sure about Milan anymore.

And I think Novokuznetsk is gone in two years. Avto too maybe.
