Just have a look at google maps where ISS Dome is. It's so far away from the city centre... compare it with Cologne where the arena is in the heart of the city, just 3 minutes by train away from the central station. Who ever planned the Düsseldorf arena at that spot must be a hockey hater.

Regarding EHC Red Bull München. Just imagine they would play in KHL. They might lose some fans but others would stay and a lot of hockey tourists from Germany and Austria would come + fans from Bavarian DEL teams wouldn't see them as competitors anymore and maybe would also watch some KHL games.
