You expect to see discussions on an actual Nordic league, but instead the first half of the thread revolves around a paranoid Russian KHL promoter ("you don't want to join KHL? why you hate Russia!?") while the second half, what is this I don't even, now it's a Canadian KHL promoter...
I guess we already had the Nordic league discussion in 2008,9,10, whatever. Swedes don't wanna play Helsinki and Finns don't wanna play AIK. Russians want everyone to join the KHL.
He sees the KHL’s expansion to consume all of Europe, with one KHL Conference in and around Russia and a European Conference with a Scandinavian Sub-Conference (Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway) and a Central European Sub-Conference (Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, France, Italy, Great Britain, Netherlands, Belgium)
Medvedev wants this league to be operational by 2013/2014 – or as a second-best option 2014/2015 – but of course the ramifications are massive as it would re-draw the map of all of the top leagues in Europe. It is a bold vision, to be sure, but one marred by uncertain ideas and structure.
Attendance 4200 at a Division 4 game (Tier 6), which is the lowest possible in Sweden.
Calling it a beer league almost seems mean to beer leagues, because this might be even worst than a regular NA beer league.
Why would 4200 people attend a beer league game? because it's "their" team, they will support it until they die, no matter what tier the team plays in.
To be honest, you can't really count that since it's one game every year. Look the attence number on the rest.
Not saying it's wierd that it's so low but don't come here and think "Bajen Fans" got big support in their hockey.
