Midnight is just Amur's regular game starting time, which I believe is 6 p.m. for them. I'm sure if they had financial incentive to do so (such as a lucrative TV deal), they would happily move a game or two to start a few hours earlier, especially at the weekends, which would then make the game coincide with prime-time on American TV.

After all, the NHL has been obliging NBC in this way for years -- NBC even gets to decide which teams are allowed to play a weekend matinée game. (No chance for you to watch a Panthers vs. Hurricanes matchup on NBC at that time.)

Wait .. is this a real possibility? Am I learning Russian for nothing? Torturing myself with case and declension when this could happen? Nah, just kidding ... I'm enjoying the challenge. But, English commentary is a good idea, though. Even if all they do is hire someone to translate the actual announcers and do a voice dub, it would probably draw in more paying customers.

You're learning Russian, bratok? Good luck

I guess it's easier to find an English-speaking announcer than to translate it on air.

As a rule, I find the original Russian announcers better, more involved in the game than "disinterested" announcers even in my native language. Watching a Slovak team playing against a Russian team, with the game being announced by 2 Czech announcers, seems particularly absurd; I'll try to avoid that in future, and will prefer the "away" broadcast over a boring pair of "unbiased" Czechs. What's particularly bad is that 2 Czech cable TV sports stations bought the rights for broadcasting Slovan games in Slovakia. I think I'll prefer watching the Russian streams instead, for the proper atmosphere, even if that means lower picture quality compared to a regular TV broadcast.

Just for fun, below you can compare 2 Russian announcers' style during yesterday's great game of Slovan vs. SKA Petersburg (4-2). The first announcer is from St. Petersburg TV and is a "homer" for SKA, moans and aahs for each goal allowed, whereas the second announcer openly celebrates each and every goal scored, no matter by whom.

Thanks/spasibo!

Yeah, you're right, probably would be easier to hire actual announcers ... maybe I've just watched too many non-English movies so dubbing is the first thing that comes to mind.

Fedotov is good, as well as Yurtaev and Mosalev. I also like Rozanov, but he rarely works on hockey. Gimaev with Tkachev or Skvortsov is insightful.

Rozanov's coverage is superb. Too bad that he only covers WJC. Mosalyov is decent, but for some reason I don't like his voice. Skvortsov became much better in the past few years. Experts like Gimayev or Khavanov should be closely controlled by their broadcast partner, otherwise they tend to forget about the actual game.

As for online coverage, now they should actually make an english version of this.

I had very little success when trying to purchase the live feed of the Chekhov vs. Slovan game last week. The official khl.ru site boasts (in Russian),

Quote:
Оплатить можно более чем тридцатью способами, с помощью высоконадежного сервиса приёма платежей ROBOKASSA.
... but it seems of little use if all of those "30 ways to purchase a live feed" seem only targetted at Russian customers. When I entered my credit card number, the payment was rejected. (And I successfully use the same card for online purchases on other sites all the time.) A gazillion of online Russian banking systems are supported by khl.ru's online shop, but not PayPal, the world's no. 1 e-bank and de facto standard. Что же нам делать?

I sent an email to Robokassa support, asking them how I can purchase a live stream from Slovakia, and asking about PayPal. In response, they sent me a link to an archived version of the Checkhov vs. Slovan game, without replying to the question about online purchases, and without referring to PayPal. I suppose I need to send them another message.

I can't understand why KHL hasn't made a deal with PayPal yet.

The large scale of the IIHF's ineptness is that apparently Yakupov is not the only one without the transfer card. Czech media outlets are reporting that none (!) of the NHL players who have signed deals in Europe in the last few days have received their transfer cards. Not Jaromir Jagr nor Evgeni Malkin nor Sergei Gonchar nor Ilya Kovalchuk. We are awaiting confirmation of this, as the time difference with Europe is such that it is tough to get answers.
I doubt that they would have made Kovy the SKA captain if he wasn't going to be permitted to play.

Chesnokov is a reliable source. Yakupov name's is being brought, because he has a game tomorrow, while other players will dress for their teams on Thursday and later.

Totally agree. I would watch so much different hockey my eyes would pop out of my head.

Jagr is already on the ice right now in the Czech league Kladno vs. Slavia game, and Plekanec, Cervenka and Sobotka have all scored, so perhaps the NHL's "permission" wasn't needed after all? Or was it delivered earlier today?
