My personal opinion has always been that a team should be able to support itself financially, make some profit or at least not bleed to much money. But it seems KHL thinks otherwise so I guess that point doesn't matter. But yeah, if they can support a team why not.
Ya, no problem but have to make a hundred baby steps before that.

1) Find owners with big dreams, big friends and big money bags
2) Market/build fan base and a valued team in domestic league
3) Prove worth in MHL/VHL for a few years
4) Okay if there is fan base, team, money, sponsors, proved worthy in Russian lower leagues/some other higher profile league: Now you need a new arena.

If all this somehow managed to happen, then wow, they deserve a team. Until then no way, you can't just plop a team there and hope for the best.
