I respect all the teams as companies of hockey players, but if we take the infrastructure - I have no idea why we still have Vityaz Chekhov in the KHL. 75k population, the arena barely meets the requirements of the VHL, the hockey school exists just for 2 years.
The same reason as above but I would name CSKA. Their infrastrcture is abysmal. LDS CSKA is the worst arena in Moscow, in my opinion. Their ticket policy is beyond my understanding - there are no tickets available for every good game even in the cash office but the arena is still barely half full.
The other reason is the way they handled Bobrov's anniversary I was on the Spartak - SKA game (6:1) where his banner was rised, his widow was here with Starshinov and some former players. The whole atmosphere was great. Then I went to the next CSKA's game. They just barely mentioned his anniversary in the beggining once and that was all.
