SKA is such a great brand with a good following that I wish they'd go truly overboard with the capacity, something like 25-30k. 20k is decent though.

Watching WC now and seeing 18.500 fans in the arena in Germany its amazing but its also a reminder that the second best leauge in the world should also have NHL arenaes

Its about monye but Putin will work this out
18k is unnecessary, however the long term goal is to have 12k arenas.

reasonable although I think 13-14k is a better long term goal for the top half of the league.

I don't agree. I think the minimum aim should be 15K. Minsk fills it. Peter can fill even more. Jokerit has a good following too, I can see them filling a 15-18K in a deep playoff run. Same for Slovan.
Moscow is Moscow, but good games in good arenas get excellent attendance, just have a look at the Channel One cup attendance. Other teams can get maybe not such results, but similar results with some work (and some luck with economy of course, which now is lacking). Kazan for example, is a good-working city, in one of the Russia's best regions. If the Russian economy will rebound, and one day will rebound, Kazan can have one of the best fanbases in Russia. Novosibirsk too, especially if they'll get the new promised arena.
Unfortunately the economy now is in bad shape, and the good flow of resources Russia had in the Olympics was poured into WC. New Russian stadiums - whatever the inner "press" says - are very good.

With 25-30k there would be a lot of seat were you can't really see that well what's going on on the ice. In the important games people would still come for the atmosphere, but for most games those seat would be empty because of the not so spectacular viewing experience.

25-30K is just insane. No need for that ever in hockey. Just go play a Winter Classic at a football stadium if you want to have over 15K fans - I'm absolutely sure that you could do this in Russian winter. Bottom half teams will almost never go above 7K so not much work to do for them. Most top half teams already have decent arenas. Novosibirsk is probably the only city that absolutely needs a bigger one which it can regularly fill. Other than that, who needs 15K-seater arenas? It could be nice to have but is not and must not be a priority for KHL at this stage.

If SKA and CSKA keeps raiding other teams, maybe the current arenas will look quite big in a few years. KHL started as a very good and competitive league but now the way it is going is not quite promising.

We'll see after the Olympics. I think something will change.
