Pro Russian Jerseys is an awesome site to deal with, I have bought over 10 KHL jerseys from him. He is usually quick to give a reply and quotes for custom orders as well. He ships out pretty fast as well.
I would like to know the reason of their failure in the past ten years. It's all about money? Any reason to believe in a bright future?
Also, i don't see their youth team well represented with u17, u18 and u20 russian national teams, however, the red army always is very well represented, also other teams like Traktor and Ak Bars.
They have G Sheytyorkin, D Demidov in RUS NT U18 in Sochi. F Khokhlachev, Voronin, G Zheldakov in RUS NT U20 last yrs. Now their juniors, MHK Spartak, are in finals of MHL. Maybe they dont have supertalents, but have solid youth (yes, Traktor/Ak Bars/CSKA are better). The problem is if youth does not get chance in seniors.
I see problem with money, it is not easy to make play offs, win Gagarin Cup, is you have low budget. As I know, they want to increase budget, we will see.
well based on the rumors their budge it going to increase. The majority of their youth hasn't been grown in their system.
Unstable ownership/sponsorship and a poor arena with low attendance was/is their problem.
