Wow, looking over that Zagreb roster brings back memories, lol.

Ryan Kinasewich, who I remember because he was a Kings prospect at one time
Frank Banham, the last guy to score 80+ goals in any North American league
Joel Prpic, the vowel-less Bruins tough guy
Andy Delmore, former NHL player

Crazy where guys like this wind up sometimes.

No worries...I can see where you're coming from. I guess I've just gotten used to it, that it doesn't faze me anymore.

Two that I noticed, 29 and 38? For the team in Blue make disgusting moves. 29 was punching someone on the floor with their head down and 38 was the one that started it all really.

Anyway... blue number 38 (Frank Banham) got 7 match suspension and blue number 29 (Joel Prpic) got 4 games suspension. No one from red-white team got it which is a joke and fans of other teams are furious. They (KAC) are known as league's pet team and as a very rude and arrogant team. This was all about debts from the past. Last year they ended a career of one of our players.
you might be right with the 1st part, but they are right aswell, these adds look terrible

I like you for the bolded part, can`t stand these KAC suckers aswell. you clearly see this city doesn`t have a good soccer club so lots of pretty primitiv guys on the terraces and the team fits well to them.

but here you can`t say its the KACs fault, what Banham did was just disgusting, Prpic too.

anyway this league is a joke, the playoffs are a freak-show every year

Just curious to know what the seating capacity is inside that arena? It looks like it holds 1000 - 2000 max... which would explain why the players are forced to wear billboards.

It holds 5500 (always sold out) and they've played 7 games (all sold out as well) in Arena Zagreb which seats 15500 spectators.

It actually averages to something like 7th in Europe (Russia not included) in home attendance.

I was in Linz, watching the black wings. During intermission, went to have a beer and watched this on live on the screens. Pretty crazy stuff.

Here are the figures for 10/11 season. Medveščak should be even higher this year given the fact that they've play 7 games in the Arena this season as opposed to four in 10/11. It's no wonder that the KHL would like to have them under their wing.

To further cement KAC's league pet status...the EBEL president Karl Sofron, decided to join in the KAC celebration in their dressing room after KAC won game 2 in Klagenfurt.

Dom Sportova has exactly 6358 seats. You can add on that around 500 on temporary stands around the ice.



Apparently they plan to add 4th stand next season (that side is now covered with banner and area behind the banner is used as table tennis arena). They just have to figure out where to kick table tennis guys. Its possible to add new stand in 2, 3 days as we've seen in Cibona days when that banner wasn't there.

I personally like the euro jerseys, does anyone know a site where u can purchase them? I remember I saw someone on HF saying they had a Rask jersey from when he played in Finland, I couldn't find it on google.

anyone know of any sites I can keep up to date with euro leagues? I would love to get into them I just don't know where to start.

You better get use it because those uniforms are coming to the NHL, money talks baby and if the owners and players can increase revenue it will happen.
