Expectations for Kuznya in VHL

They just signed solid VHL goalie Andrei Litvinov today. What should they shoot for?

Fans will enjoy seeing winning hockey, even at a lower level.

Minimal.

Against lower competition, they'd be decent, especially against Kazakhstan teams aside from Torpedo, but VHL is a Russian league, by far, and I guess Kuznya will have the exact same problems they had in KHL.

Lyamkin and Yazkov left for Ak Bars, so that's not good.

What exactly do you mean? There are just two Kazakhstani teams in the VHL, both of them being top teams in the league.

Judging by his reasoning, it looks like he interestingly thinks all Russian teams are at the same level. But Kuznya is also a Russian team... Mind blown.

Zinovyov has never been shy and not as a GM.

Wat?

Saryarka was by far the richest VHL team last season. That's among other confusing things about your post.

No, I meant that the only time they ever won anything was a preseason championship in Kazakhstan.

But, here's the thing; in the KHL, Kuznya were the bottomfeeders, and never once made the postseason or even had a winning record. What do you think that'll change in VHL?

They may do bad in the VHL too, but they won't be facing Kovalchuk, Mozyakin, etc.
