What team will move up from Mestis to replace Jokerit?

Sorry if this question has been asked to death. Is the SMligga going to move up a team from the Mestis to replace Jokerit when they go to the KHL? Any info is appreciated....

Why do you think that Vaasa Sport is the most likely?

There's a lot of reasons. Best fan base; highest attendance numbers; one of the wealthiest and most professional organizations; organization that generates most revenue; decent market area; best juniors.

Their fan base is quite wide and they probably have the best fan culture of all hockey clubs in Finland.

Is it an absolute guarantee that a team is going to move up from the mestis? I would imagine that the SM ligga would want to keep its membership consistent right?

No team should be "moved" to Sm-liiga. Mestis winner should be the one that takes Jokerit's place. Its sports, not bussiness.

I've heard some rumours that Sport actually bought themselves a sport in Liiga next season?

What about the junior teams of Jokerit. Will they continue to play in U20, U18, U16 in Finland or will for example, U20 team move to MHL?

Hasn't Jokerit left the whole national federation? My guess is that they'll play in the MHL

Wow.. My guess is they'll keep playing U20 liiga ect. Can't see them making juniors travel that much ect. They can just make new organisation for juniors.

No. Jokerit juniors will remain as it is. Though there are rumors (confirmed by B-juniors coach Kari Haakana) that the A-juniors might not be allowed in their league. Now whether that would mean completely removing them or dropping them to a lower tier, is not known. Moving to MHL has never been an option due to practical reasons. A-juniors have 17-21 year old players who are in school or army. League schedules are often designed to facilitate those. Road games abroad would be too much on an inconvenience on both of those.
