I'm having a hard time caring about the KHL. Maybe I'll warm up to it as the season progresses and I get more desperate.
I will definitely not be watching it. I've watch a few games before and for the most part there is actually no hitting at all. It's like watching women's hockey. And then I saw these videos of this one team that was full of goons that would just go out there and intentionally try and injure/fight the other team's top stars.
Btw, there are also some interesting players on the other team: in second line, 18 yr old Australian talent Nathan Walker (this year invited to the Caps camp IIRC), first line D pairing Marek Malik who you might remember from NYR. Kubina signed a contract there but he isn't allowed to play next 12 matches.
