Yes, on the presumably "worst team in the league". They have barely met the leagues' financial requirements to participate an had to start a garage sale of players in the offseason. In the KHL you can sell player's rights for money, so you dump the contract, get money and don't get a contact in return. So they basically have players on the roster they still could afford. That means there are no real 1st or 2nd lines there. They are a bunch of 3rd and 4th liners, a couple of guys well over 35 and a couple of youngsters. They managed to upset some fat cats last year with their work ethic and team first mentality though. Today in their season opener they scored two quick and grinded out a 3:2 SO win. That's what they do.
