Maybe it is too early to claim, but CSKA created its affiliate this season in Tver (VHL). That is good step for dveloping system of club. Lack of VHL yeam was one of reasons why exodus from CSKA in previous seasons. Not every player can play KHL at 17, MHL is not good enough for them (acc. to Zadorov etc, I dont agree with them) and CSKA did not have farm team where these kids could develop.
93, injured, played in VHL this season, still MHL eligible
94, just one game in VHL, both drafted by CSKA
Gusev, Lyubimov, Barbashev
93 played VHL, now KHL
93 played a few VHL games
Next season only two 21y old (1992) can play. VHL club has to have on roster at least 5 guys under 23, another minimum of 5 guys under 25, plus two under 20. So CSKA will have to move its prospects to KHL or VHL.
Zadorov, Zykov, Tolchintsky - at least one of them would play VHL this season. I am sure about it.
