Do we look out side our border? Also, I once saw Dmitri Kalinin buy 5 printers at a Best Buy in Amhest NY. Is that kind decision making the reason for our poor defense?
p.s. the last part is just a joke..although a true story.
Apparently Milos Riha is one of the candidates according to hokej.cz. This would be good for two reasons a) he's a good coach, has made a name for himself in the KHL and has a good idea of Russian players. Plus he could maybe integrate young guys too, as this seems to have been the main criticism of Bykov, if my memory serves me well.
b) A reason not related to Russia and a bit OT: When the time comes for Hadamczik to leave, he'll already have international experience and should do a good job for our national team (should he be chosen).
