So, after hearing that Jan Muršak signed a deal with Amur Khabarovsk I got into research.
It seems Amur has a 100% attendance record, for their 7,100 seat arena, during the past five KHL seasons and that the city itself has about 600,000 inhabitants. Do they have any plans to build a new and larger arena in the near future? Sure their Platinum arena is only a decade old, but it seems they could easily support an arena in the range of about 12,000 seats
Volgograd? No, nothing. Well, there is a rumor that Volgograd's basketball team owner, which is called "Red October", wants to build a new basketball hall, so probably the only possibility for Volgograd to get a hockey venue is if that thing will be a Multipurpose Arena with enough space for a rink. And that is highly unlikely. Simple court will be a lot cheaper.
And I have my doubts that Volgograd has enough money in the budget for a hockey arena, considering that at the moment they're preoccupied with 45000 seat football stadium for the World Cup.
