Oh, and to answer this, if you google it, several media outlets have stated explicitly he'll be there until the end of the lockout. So yeah, he might think there is going to be no NHL this season, but if there is, he's going to be on his first flight back, make no mistake about it. A player that has a contract with an NHL team, especially a franchise defender, does not just decide to stay in the KHL, while the NHL is going on. This would be a breach of their NHL contract, and the contracts they sign with KHL teams have out clauses in them anyway.

Some enjoyable matches last night/afternoon.

Amur vs Barys in 45 minutes. Probably not on TV, might stream it if I can find a stream, come on Gusev

Here is a question for some of you, who do you think will have a great season in the NHL once the lockout is over, Not talking about the likes of Makin, Datsyuk etc but do you see Ovechkin rediscovering old form after spending a few months with Backstrom or Kulyomin having a repeat of his 2010-11 season after playing with Malkin in the KHL, or maybe someone like Anisimov finally playing to his potential.

Maybe Tarasenko has a great year.

Any player regardless of nationality.

So please, I talked about 9 out of 10 playoff teams in January. First game of the month and yeah I'm wrong!!!! wooo you're right! I'm wrong, of course, Malkin is going to continue a streak of 2+ points per game against playoff teams.

You mean if the lockout is over. I bet many European hockey fans don't wish for the lockout to end at this point. It's just too late, and it would definitely damage and distort the KHL season. I mean, the regular season is almost over here, and they're about to launch another regular season overseas?

PS: Sorry for not replying to the original question, but I'm still skeptical as to whether there'll be an NHL season this year.

I always enjoy going to Dynamo games although I don't go to games when they play at Balashikha arena. I even enjoyed last seasons KHL playoffs much more than the NHL Playoffs. So don't get me wrong I will be annoyed if the NHL lockout finishes.

But, I highly doubt that their will be no NHL season, hence the question. I will be more than happy for the stars to stay in the KHL until the end of the season and the lockout to continue but I doubt it will happen.

Well, I don't think he was limiting his question to this season. And I personally hope the lockout doesn't end this season, either, despite the NHL being the league I follow when it's in session. I totally agree with the distortion argument, as well.

To answer the question, I hope Bryzgalov will have an excellent season, as I'm a Flyers fan As far as Ovechkin is concerned, I think he'll be overshadowed by Malkin and sadly won't regain his old form, if only due to a different system Washington is now playing. And Anisimov? I don't know, hard to predict, since we don't know who he'd play with in Columbus. There aren't many that can help him there, and I doubt he can produce at, say, close to a PPG pace on his own. It'd be great if he did, though.

The KHL is a great league. I watched from Canada plenty. Really hoping for SKA to win the league this year. When it comes to the NHL to start, I think Vladimir Tarasenko will be a great NHL player. I enjoy watching him play.

Nikita Gusev and Ozhiganov are doing very well, I hope they will be back with CSKA sooner than later

Ak Bars vs Salavat Yulaev 9:2, and Kazan have 6 minutes to score more. If they do, who could expect that the biggest thrashing would be made in the Green Derby?

UPD: I was wrong, Salavat scored the third.

Gusev has looked good from what I have seen, still a work in progress but he is elevating his game playing a bigger role. I am not a big stats man although a lot of people in this forum (not this section but HF in general) do obsess about stats but I do like keeping track of it. In his last seven games he has collected 6 points. This is playing on the third worst side in the KHL. 8 points in 13 games for Amur is quite decent, in terms of Points Per Game with Amur he is the same as Antropov in the KHL.

Also a fan of Ozhiganov too, these moves to Amur have been very beneficial to both players and hopefully they have a great end to this season and can move onto bigger roles at CSKA.

D-Day in Bratislava. Slovan has not lost in regulation at home for 7 straight games, while Magnitka shut out their opponents for 3 straight games. Which series comes to an end today? Possibly neither, but I'm predicting a 2-1 shootout win for Slovan, a pointless night for both Malkin & Moziakin, and no PPG for Magnitka.

Slovan has been very good on the defensive side of the puck and keeping the games low scoring. Its offense vs. defnse in this match up but if Magnitka can get a few power plays, Slovan will be toast. I'm picking Magntitka.

I hope fans in Bratislava won't forget to bring their hats to the stadium.
I believe they can appreciate state of the art hat-tricks even if opponent scores.

MMG just needs to score first goal and Slovan will be done with all respect to Slovac fans

I realize Magnitka has the best power-play in the KHL, but Slovan is among the best KHL teams in short-handed play, especially in recent months. That's exactly why I predicted no PPG for Magnitka today. I can't remember when was the last game that Slovan allowed a goal while short-handed. Of course, this can all collapse today.

Two of Slovan's regular defensemen, Štajnoch and Tabaček, are injured, and the replacement Mihálik has been extremely shaky this season, except in the very last game when he even scored the opening goal against Avtomobilist. Sigalet committed quite a few gaffes in recent games. If the NHL season starts soon and Višňovský with Sekera leave, Slovan will have to worry about making the play-offs at all.

Can anyone verify if Malkin, Gonchar, Kulemin, O'Reilly etc are playing today for Magnitogorsk? Now that there is a verbal agreement on a new CBA?

It would be very strange (not to mention disappointing for the sell-out crowd) if they didn't play, now that they are here, accommodated since yesterday at the Hilton hotel right next door to the arena...

Yeah, definitely it looks like a luxure palace of ancient Kings. (lol!! No kidding)
I believe MMG will live up to the highest expectations of all hockey fans

Lockout is over. I imagine lockout players will play today and that's it...other than perhaps the All-Star game thing that was mentioned before (not sure)...
