Hopefully these plans for new arenas in places like Astana, Nizni Novgorod etc will be done soon, because the whole credibility of a KHL is on stake.
They have recently got HD broadcasts and I would greatly disagree with this statement. There lighting is better than most arenas, and they usually have a full arena, great atmosphere - especially since the arena seems to be tailored to hockey (fans are right up to the glass, not 5 feet behind like many other arenas). I actually would prefer watching games there than to most other arenas. No comment on Novokuznetsk.
