i am a huge Bragin supporter, probably the only one on CSKA forum. A winning confident coach, but everybody on cska forum hates him for his spartak past and for overplaying stars, benching youth, and playing defensive hockey without established offense. What people refuse to understand, is that CSKA for the past two years was an outsider (let's be honest here) and it takes time to gain different mentality and build a team.
Also, I think, Bragin had a iffy relationship with charismatic players on CSKA's roster (Bryzgalov, Radulov)...
The reason they retained Bragin is probably not to pay severance.

p.s. I feel bad for Bragin, he was put forth in an unfair situation, not given time to build a team...with all that he had 23 wins out of 33 games, pretty good if u ask me.
