Do MHL-A have a similar educational arrangement with its players? I mean, many MHL-A players can't crack a VHL roster, let alone a KHL one.
Availability of higher education in Russia is not that much of an issue to have this kind of arrangements. It's harder to get into an MHL team than a university.

Selectivity =/= affordability. But how affordable are Russian universities for Russian students, anyway?

It's not too hard to get education for free. And not too expensive to support an average (I'm not talking about elite schools) university student, most certainly not for middle class families capable of supporting MHL-caliber players.

Shame about Prizma, our local league could of used them. Anyway, how on earth Chelny got a spot in MHL A? surely they could of found a better team 20th team in the East. Am I missing something?

it's no longer who wins the spot, it's whoever can afford it.

Why can't there be two Prizma teams, or one playing in both leagues, how it used to be?

Simply I wanted to solely focus on our local league as there is some sort of a mini revival going on. I have no real objections against MHL b as such.

mini-revival? why should a junior team be in a pro league? what kind of revival is that? If the kids who are older than juniors want to play on a prizma team in Latvian league and Prizma has the money for that, I am all for it.

Who said anything about a pro league? It's just an indicator how bad things have really got lately.

Hmm, I was under impression that everything was already finalized for next season as far as MHL structure is concerned...

And also, now you won't have an excuse to continue being a fan CSKA, as you'll have a local team from now on.

well if there's a team for Rostov in the KHL I will be torn, otherwise CSKA it is....I am pretty sure, even if the rumor is true, it's MHL-b...I don't think that league is finalized..

but even if RHL-MHL-B both come to rostov it's a huge break through.

Actually, I was surprised they dropped out last year, after supposedly Mechel sponsors went to Izhevsk's hockey. Still Izhevsk's hockey currently is in pretty dire state.

Sorry if this was asked previously already but for the guys who follow MHL regularly. Do you think the level of play and the organization of MHL & MHL B has increased in the last years? Or is it more or less the same as in the first year?

it's hard to tell, I think MHL exposes more players, but I am not sure the level would fluctuate much in such a short span. I actually expect it to decrease with the smaller number of overages.

Also we have to remember league now 40 teams, more than double of couple of years ago.

Wouldn't it be better to reduce the number of Russian MHL teams then to avoid a weaker competition and wouldn't it make more sense to have more teams like the one from Austria/Germany or Czech Republic who then would play with almost only local talent? So MHL would have access to a larger talent pool and the foreign teams are also happy.

The idea is to merge MHL A and MHL B one day, like CHL. It wont happen anytime soon, even league increased number of clubs in A this offseason.

It make more sense but "no interest of Euros=no clubs from Europe."

So in the future we could have MHL West / MHL Central / MHL East (with different names maybe) in the way CHL is organized? Maybe its also better for Western European teams if they get an own MHL conference because obviously its not good if teams have to travel that long on road trips because of school and stuff like this.

yeah, it is a long term plan, but when/if happens I have no idea. Efimov said that not within 5 yrs because the gap is too big now.

Sure, own euro division/conference make sense and I think it can happen one day, but we need more euro clubs. Slovan will join within a few yrs. Who else? I dont know. Maybe czechs, germans? Btw, Patriot Budapest is still here, will play next season

Wow. I thought Patriot project was dead. Weren't there rumours about it?

Well, you got the Red Bull team (GER/AUS), Karlovy Vary (CZE), Patriot (HUN) and maybe in the future MHL teams for Medvescak, Slovan and Lev Prague. They could play with MHL teams from Latvia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moscow, St. Petersburg...

I strongly disagree, because the amount of pro-schools in Russian is huge and what's to happen to all these guys? At least with the MHL they can play into their 20's. There are aslo a lot of places to continue playing even if you don't cut it for RSL: France/Italy/Slovenia/Austria/Norway/Denmark etc., but the kids are too spoiled.

Ok maybe not reduce teams but they should find a solution how to keep the level of the competition high.
