i don't see their youth team well represented with u17, u18 and u20 russian national teams
, however, the red army always is very well represented, also other teams like Traktor and Ak Bars.
They have G Sheytyorkin, D Demidov in RUS NT U18 in Sochi. F Khokhlachev, Voronin, G Zheldakov in RUS NT U20 last yrs. Now their juniors, MHK Spartak, are in finals of MHL. Maybe they dont have supertalents, but have solid youth (yes, Traktor/Ak Bars/CSKA are better). The problem is if youth does not get chance in seniors.
I see problem with money, it is not easy to make play offs, win Gagarin Cup, is you have low budget. As I know, they want to increase budget, we will see.
