Article in the local paper about KHLer David Ling

http://thechronicleherald.ca/Front/1158705.html

There's a story from the local paper about David Ling and his current job with HC Amur.

I found this section especially incredible,

Quote:
It is located just 30 kilometres away from China and over 3,000 kilometres from HC Amurís nearest KHL competitor. There is an eight-hour time change between HC Amur Khabarovsk and Dinamo Riga, the most western KHL team.
and later,

Quote:
HC Amurís brutal schedule will see the team travel about 115,000 kilometres this season, almost 16 times the distance from Vancouver to St. Johnís, N.L.

By comparison, the most-travelled team in the NHL, the Calgary Flames, logs just over 89,000 kilometres a season, and NHL teams play 26 games more than KHL teams.
Just thought I'd share the article, I found it interesting in regards to the travel and comments about the KHL being the second-best league. This guy has played plenty of places.

Amur and their fans are hardcore. They always sell out their games and those guys are the definition of road warriors. It is amazing they can even stand up straight after all that travel let alone play the games.

We need more teams in the east. Vladivostok, Irkutsk (big bandy following, get like 30,000 people a game) Hantymansiysk, Yakutsk, Blagoveshchensk etc. It will lead to less trips from far east to far west and will be good for those cities.

Isn't Mogilny from a town close to the Chinese boarder? I could be wrong, but I remember hearing that while he was a Leaf.

Also Rangers' prospect Evgeny Grachev is from Khabarovsk, as much as other good prospects like Georgi Berdyukov and others

here is the video from the game between Amur and Lokomotiv.
Ling had a clash with the goalie Gelashvili.
And then,after he left the penalty box, he passed to Shirokov, and he scored!!!
