Well, if you have Baltcom, then you have to pay an additional 6 lats per month for VSB and other channels. That is 2 cinema tickets or a bottle of vodka. Home games will be on TV6, which most of the Latvians already have.

Well, as Russians say: "Шило на мыло". Mestis might be a little bit better than Belarus Extraliga, but it's not on a completely different level. Afaik, Pekka wants borderline DR players to understand Finnish hockey and to adapt to a much more physical style.

if thats the case then I like it. Why? Because it means that Pekka has plans for next 3-4 years. That is good for Dinamo, I dont like too many changes in coaching staff. Btw, what if this finnish club to promote to SM-Liiga? Dont believe, but is fun to thing about it. SM-Liiga club is "farm team" of KHL club.

Jokipojat already won Mestis in 09/10, but decided to stay there, because they couldn't financially afford playing in SM-Liiga.

Weird timing of Lucenius release, but we can't get rid of Podzinsh soon enough.

Lucenius next season will be different animal, you can clearly see that when he will start scoring he will be just as crucial to our team like Sprukts have been in recent seasons.

J. Redlihs simply is a faster player, that's way his desperation scrambling doesn't look so sad as Lavins panic defending. Our D-corps as such were one of the worst in whole league last year and I fear one Carle won't be able to fix them. We need big, imposing and more importantly physical D-men like Kulda or Bartulis, but unfortunately it looks like it won't happen this season.
Looks like you were wrong

Lucenius is '89, while Bičevskis, Upitis and Biezais are '91. If you remember, 2 U22 players can be added to the 20-man roster for each game. Lucenius can't be amidst those 2, while B&B&U can. Here's your answer.

Rule was changed according to Bragin. Club can skate 4 guys born 91 or younger. Previous rule was one guy 91, one 92 and possible two kids 92/younger. It has nothing to do with Dinamo Riga´s situation, all guys are 91 as you write.

Ok, this is a total joke. "Lucenius is out", one day later: "He's with the team". "Podzins is packing his equipment", one day later: "He's traveling with the team". Are you kidding me?!

Riga fans are gathering in Prague. First troopers arrived yesterday, today they got multiple reinforcements and tomorrow the last of the batch will land (Moscow branch). The whole crowd will then journey to Bratislava. Expect some loud DR chants during both games!

Well, the first game was terrible...
Even though we played bad and should've played much better to win the game I did not understand some fans reaction, i.e. we should've won the game! Why? Does Lev have worse players than we do or smaller budget? Yes, they are kinda new... kinda cause Poprad Lev played already last year.

So it's a normal result IMHO, the game should've been better, it was awful but we should have known that the loss was possible, some of guys have never played in KHL before (or only episodically), so they were probably nervous and the same goes for the opponent.

As for our players, no one really played very well. Indrašis had a lot of stupid mistakes despite the pass for the goal, Karsums scored and was good but anyway not a miracle man. Jučers was solid in the net, if your goalie allows 2 goals on the road then your attack should be able to get something out of the game... our guys didn't!

I hope though that last year's suffering with only one scoring line won't continue... We have a good roster, let's show it already vs Slovan.
