dont know, I would say it is only formality, legal issue.. HC LEV will play KHL, I am sure for 1000%. Look at Slovan, club needs FULL approval of SZLH (got only TEMPORARY), evryone knows it is not problem, just legal steps must be done. I dont know details about HC LEV but I can imagine similar situation - legal steps must be done. Thats all.
I hope that Czechs maintain their league in as high as possible state.
But I also think that Czech clubs can increase the prestige of KHL, so that TOGETHER the KHL can keep European youths in Europe and at home, at least for a reasonable amount of time. Having a strong traditional market like Prague represented in KHL can increase interest in hockey in not only Czech Rep. but Russia and many other countries as well.
another one - wasted youth away in the AHL, hopefully he plays for Lev this year.
I agree witll all you wrote. I really hope that euro players wont waste talent in CHL or AHL in future. Ok, guys like Yakupov, Landeskog can go overseas in younger age. But guy who just want to "try" it?? Hockey carrer is not lottery to just try and learn english (two reasons why guys are leaving for CHL - just experience or learning english). Europe needs to make appropriate development model to keep guys.
