Sean Monahan Posted December 14, 2015 Share Posted December 14, 2015 God dammit my laptop won't let me right click right now (only on this tab apparently?) so I can't copy the link. I'l just type it out. www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/khl-to-expand-into-china-next-season So the KHL plans on expanding into Beijing. Is the KHL still in the financial hard times they were not so long ago? Given the price of oil I'm thinking yes. To me, this is a terrible idea for a league already struggling financially. Look to the NHL to see that non-hockey markets haven't worked, even with the comparatively larger (potential) markets. Even KHL teams with traditionally strong fanbases (like SKA, Helsinki, etc) are struggling. Debate the merits of this idea please. Just got into a very heated argument with my brother about it, with him on the side of (using North American examples) "I'll take the risk of a ~10% chance of success with higher reward in Florida" and me on the "I'll take the greater bet for success in a smaller market like Winnipeg" side.
