KHL draft is a running joke nobody takes it seriously as every club just drafts their own prospects.

If Riga started to suddenly draft from the Danish league they might think like Thoresen it's serious and come happily!! - being drafted by Amur might not get a young danish kid going lol

Well the problem is that Denmark is still not taken seriously as a hockey nation,so this scenario is only possible 5-6 years down the road.

You wouldn't want Thomas Spelling??? (danish Rookie of the year 2010-2011).
Maybe he wants to be first Danish in KHL if he doesn't get an NHL draft....

He is not sold to Sweden yet, like Patrick Bjørkstrand is to Mora. So the Herning line is breaking up anyways....maybe he can be lured?

or maybe Jannik Karvinen...if he wants a steady place in the national team he needs to leave his beloved Rødovre........and he can score goals these last two seasons.
(he is also half finnish so maybe less "alien" for him).

The problem also is that we shouldn't be training potential enemies for the WC. Not that slack jawed morons in the DR care. I don't like that team, don't think I will watch any more of DR games. Fed up with that corrupt organization.

Yes Mora has bought a lot of new players.
From Odense (Denmark): Mustukovs, Tyler Gotto and Rob Ricci (both canadians)
From Herning (Denmark): Patrick Bjørkstrand
From Des Moines (USA): Gasper Kopitar (Anze's little brother).

Sounds interesting and unorthodox.

If you dont like the organization,don`t watch it Your hate against the team is absolutley irrational,if you should hate someone its LHF. Also remmember this once and for all Dinamo riga=/=Latvian NT,two seperate organizations,Dinamo rigas job is not to take care of Latvias national team is the job of LHF!

But is the team any good? is it a major improvement for mustokovs in your opinion?

well.....if you want your club to compete in KHL you need foreign players oif the best latvians go to bigger clubs. If you can't pay for real stars you need up and coming stars from countries where other KHL teams never look......like Norway (beside Thoresen) and Denmark. We get trained in Sweden anyways

He will probably start as backup goalie....but if he plays like he did in Odense he might have a good chance.....Andersen played in Denmark before Frölunda...
