I am talking about future, next decade. KHL has a rule that new arenas must be above 12000. Look at KHL´s strategic cities in Europe - Prague, Helsinki. Both with arenas above 10 000 and is it not coincidence. Zagreb and Bratislava as well. Geneve has a chance as well, if new arena is built. Of course, Servette can play a season or two in current arena, but there must be a plan for new big one. Otherwise no Servette in KHL.

One more time, KHL does not look at status quo but future when decides about new clubs. Especially those from Europe.
