No one more appropriate for Vityaz than the no. 1 hitter in the NHL and the best scorer (along with Kopitar) in the most recent NHL play-offs.

There was an interview with Chára the other day where he says he feels like he's been playing on the road all the time, due to the lost contact to his wife & 6-year-old daughter.

i have an answer for Chara's problems - buy two tickets: Boston - Prague, bring the wife and the daughter over. As for Brown, to me he seems like a guy who's better on smaller rinks, if he comes over we'll see if I am right.

Are you the parent of a small child? It's not easy (one might even call it "brutal") to tear a child out of its accustomed circle of friends, school, etc. Chára specifically mentioned his daughter's ballet classes. This would make even less sense when you're not even sure if the lockout will end in December, January, or September next year.

i see you, like this argument. BUT. He is a hockey player, he can be traded in NHL as well, so needs to adapt to new city etc. It is his choice to play hockey. If he does not like conditions (not with family), he can sit on sofa at home in Boston.

Guys, I only mentioned Chára's interview because that's exactly the reason why Dustin Brown may choose to remain "sitting on the family sofa" instead of joining Vityaz Chekhov.

I'd say Chara's achieved a point where he feels pretty safe about not being traded anywhere, being the captain of the team that won the cup two years ago. And he's already played for the one team stupid enough to trade him.

How do they do it?
Oh, look, there are a lot of fans from Novosibirsk as well.

I dont know why Ak-Bars are struggling so much with attendance... They can barely get 60% capacity. Lowest in the whole league

47 out of the 500 seats available for the visiting team, to be exact.* But even that is definitely admirable, considering the distance from Novosibirsk to Bratislava. I think we had no fans from cities like Novokuznetsk, Khanty-Mansiysk and Astana.

*Source: today's article about the upcoming electronic auction for tickets for the Slovan vs. Lev game on December 8th. The auction will start on Thursday, November 1st at 9 a.m. CET at ticketportal.sk. The November games at regular prices sold out in 30 minutes. The new and raised ticket price for the auction is €16 (all sectors). A buyer can raise the price by €1 at least. If no one raises the price further within 4 hours, the ticket is sold. A single buyer may bid for no more than 4 tickets. The auction will close on Sunday. I wonder how this experiment will work out and what the final average price per ticket is going to be. Initial estimates say the average price could at least double to €32 per ticket. Ticket requests so far have reportedly averaged 30,000 per game, with the ticketportal.sk site typically collapsing whenever the tickets went on sale. Slovan says if the electronic auction turns out to be a failure, they will think of yet another way to sell tickets to Slovan's hockey games.

Easy. It's transportation in Kazan. You just can't get to a game in time if you don't move out say 2 hours before the game except you live/work by the arena. With games starting at 7 and most ppl working till 6 it's a tough choice. You spend an hour and a half in a traffic jam and get to the game half an hour late like we did last time(and there was a long line of ppl like us at the entrance) or you decide to watch the game at a bar or at home. It's almost every time half the hockey fans I know choose the latter. Kazan is a booming city and it's suffocated with traffic even without hockey. On gameday it's just worse, much worse. The transportation infrastructure just can't catch up to exploding traffic.

And it's not the lowest attendance in the league btw.

Anyway, you shouldn't compare a 10000 arena to 3000-5000 seaters. With 100% attendance there are still half or less than half the amount of ppl of the Tatneft Arena.

It is one thing if you are an average player that has to adjust to such a life with all the trades etc or if you have reached a point, like Chara, where you can decide for yourself what is best for you and your family. I mean he could just say "goodbye to everyone" and stay in Boston for the rest of his life playing golf.
