A loss 5:2,really dissapointing so what have we learned? Telquist is not our #1 goalie,Jučers is,Meija and Džeriņš DO NOT belong on the second line and Ņiživijs does not belong on this team AT ALL and line that`s not dissapointing is first line,so after all this ,team roster SHOULD BE looking something like this-

Karsums-Johnson-Indrašis
Daugaviņš-Schremp-Giroux
Meija-Džeriņš-Bukarts(if he plays good for our farmclub he can be considered to be put on 2nd line)
Skvorcovs-Bičevskis-Biezais

Also a sidenote: Daugaviņš looked pretty good giving the conditions today,even creating a very good scoring chance at the end of 3d AND ivanāns has no buisness in this team,he just makes too much stupid penalties.

Wake up, neither is our #1. The fourth Atlant goal today was completely on Telly, but otherwise he wasn't bad. Our D is just one big mess with a few solid plays here and there.

Did you watch the games where Jučers played? he was great,making almost no mistakes in the net and beeing genrally calm,the quite opposite of Telly oh and the first goal is also on him.

Well on a positive note our ex-Dinamo rīga player Miķelis Rēdlihs has scored a goal today for Loko.

Helo, you are so fast with your conclusions. Telly played two great games before, today, yeah, mby 1 or 2 goals was on him, but you already started benching him. ;D

Overall great game today. We got little unlucky (again?), lot of chances, but finishing as always.. I think under 2.5 on us is safest bet ever.

And about lines.. Bukarts, really?

Yo don't count Podzins as a Latvian? Anyway, Nizivijs still has a lot of fans, but yeah he slowly is turning into everyone's #1 scapegoat. As a hardcore hipster, I'll have to say that I hated him way before it became cool.

Wasn't a bad game again, it's just the opponents are better at scoring... We can run and fight, Džeriņš can escape from defence and then give the puck to the goalkeeper as always- it's just the difference in class that shows again, like in the game vs CSKA or Lev (who also have better players)....
Indrašis-Johnson-Karsums goal was great but other than that the more talented team won.

As concerns Sprukts, well... today he scored and would he be on Dinamo Riga team, he'd be better (in getting those points at least) than all forwards we have now except maybe Karsums...

He wouldn`t be better than Indrašis and Giroux.

Also talking about skill... Theres a good chance Darziņš gets kicked out of Ak bars,he wouldnt solve all the problems but at least we`d have a good player on 2nd line instead of some Meija or Džeriņš

Somehow everybody assume that if our guys get kicked out they'll automatically go back to Riga to play for 250 000 euro a season... Dumbass is in trouble, has a lot of money and Supler is head coach, Barys season has not started that well, the same can be said about Minsk... Sējējs works for LEV, they are not in trouble at the moment but who knows if they need a player... furthermore you can trade in some foreigner from some Russian lover echelon club for one of our guys...

Plus we remember how Dinamo could offer Kulda or Bārtulis great contracts!!!

Yes,maybe,but Darziņš stats in Ak bars are horrible so it might be that none other team might want Dārziņš except for Rīga.

Latgale_fan, said that Sprukts would be our best forward besides Karsums, you answered that he wouldn`t be better only than Indrašis and Giroux, so Karsums>Indrasis&Giroux>Sprukts>Others?

Well ofcourse Johnson and Schremp should also be included,especially schremp when he will get better linemates so he will be able to fully open up.

Well... no, actually, he doesn't All his bad press comes from one incident when he didn't want to play for NT in WC stating ''tiredness'' as a cause. Otherwise he's a solid player for such teams like Latvia or Dinamo Riga.
If Indrašis gets 35 point season in KHL this year then maybe I will agree. The same about Giroux, as he might have been better in AHL few years ago but what is the situation now?? Lundmark was a good example last year...

And the problem with Dinamo is actually that there's not much problem at all. The only problem is that the league is getting stronger, maybe not the top clubs but the average level is increasing. Yeah the defence in last game was terrible but stuff happens. With a team like this in the first or 2nd KHL season we would be in play-offs for sure but, unfotunately, times change... There are a lot less teams with internal problems now, the managers' have started to select players more carefully and the budgets have grown, especially for some clubs. If we look at teams in front of us in standings, I can see us overtaking Vityaz still and Minsk might continue to be Minsk but other than that.... Slovan that is a carbon copy of Dinamo (as regards national identity as the club's ideology, budget) and great coach, Spartak that maybe does not look as impressive as concerns big names but where actually a fighting team has been built now, Severstal with Shipachyov??? And below us is Donbass who will sot their problems out, I believe, and Torpedo...

The problem is that we are, at best, standing at the same place when we were last year while some other clubs have made great steps forward... and not only CSKA.

I'm not pessimistic about our chances at play-off this year but I see our small advantages over other clubs during last few seasons suddenly going away....

Yes he does,hes slow,has wooden hands,his skating sucks etc. I`m suprised CSKA took him,probably the only reason beeing that hes a solid PK`er i`ll give him that.

He's not a fast skater, he doesn't have a brilliant backhander, he's not a shoot-out genius, but he can score and create moments nevertheless. He can fight along the boards, help d-men, play PK like no other currently active Latvian center. Girgensons has all the talent and potential to top Sprukts in a few years, rather than that I don't see a good substitution with a Latvian passport.
