Equal footing in football? Good one.

Only 1/4 of 2nd rounders become regular NHLers.

I'd say EPL, La Liga, Serie A and Bundesliga are pretty equally footed atm. Ofcourse, This has more to do with Champions League these days, which is the nr.1 dream for any footballer, aside from the WC and EURO naturally.

lockout is over, times are tough for CSKA, barely conquered Avto in SO....

hoping, that Fedorov was ready and has some tentative agreement with potential reinforcements. I can see O. Petrov, Panarin, Korolyuk (renta players), Kagarlitskiy (can be bought out as it looks like Kuznya is finishing it's run in the KHL sooner than later), and if somehow we can manage to pry Zherdev - that would be great. D is pretty good, but offensive power is less than scary.

Can they call back Gusev?

Minsk, Torpedo, Donbass fall in regulation. Minsk and Donbass are a couple my well liked teams, but I really want Slovan in playoffs so... Severstal wins in regulation though

A Slovan win (most important) and a Lev loss against Magnitogorsk and it will be a pretty solid day all around...

That's true but first of all, we are not talking about just a 2nd round pick but about very high 2nd round pick where you can still go with safe pick which you pretty much know will turn into a NHL player of some kind or go with high risk - high reward pick (a lot of teams do that and that's why ratio is 1/4) who may not pan out but also might become a star. You never know when you are getting Duncan Keith, Shea Weber or Loui Eriksson

Maybe he was too upset to play after Datsyuk and Grabo left

OK, so the English Premier League might be a notch above the closest followers, but that's all it is, a notch. Like LOFIN mentioned, there are other leagues very close to it, and the gap isn't nearly as great as it is in hockey right now. You also don't see one-way traffic towards a single league like you do with the NHL, and there's plenty of excellent players that have left the EPL to play elsewhere instead. But yeah, be my guest and focus on that iota of difference in the footing to devalue my point.

I know it's off topic, but IMO Bundesliga is already better than PL.

Damn, another injured D from Slovan, that's 9 injured players now.

At least Miklik punished the hit with a PP snipe.

that's one thing I respect about Butsaev, he don't ...k around, if Radulov thinкs he's special - he can be special riding the pine.

Good for him As much as I enjoy watch Radulov play the s(*t he pulls sometimes drives me nuts.

Not financially. The ones with money will always grab the most sought after players, thus driving up the prices even more and bridging the gap between the big and small clubs even further.

Radulov is practicing with the MHL squad for now. Based on his salary, very few teams can afford him and just a week left to sort it out.
