Dinamo Riga 2014/2015 season talk

Let's hit it off!

With all the foreigners gone, there's still one without a contract - Jamie Johnson. I hope he doesn't resign.

There was some talk about them leaving the KHL (see the khl contraction topic)... is there still any talk of that? Personally I'd rather not see such a thing happen, but, is anyone still mentioning that?

It wasn't a serious discussion. Obviously, with Russians acting in Ukraine, questions in Latvia where raised, whether the team should stay there. But Riga is owned by Rosneft, and the director of Dinamo (as well as Latvian subsidiary of Itera) told that it isn't happening. "Let's not mix sports and politics". No matter how absurd this cliche is.

On guys like Ruzicka. Yeee

Thank god it's a try-out. I guess it's the biggest intrigue of the off-season - whether we'll beat the number of bottom half forwards that we'll sign this year compared to previous one or not?

Damn, for a second I thought it's the Ruzicka who was quite good for Spartak a while ago.

When you think about it, he and Hossa could really let sparks fly, he's an FA and probably not top-tier teams material anymore. Perfect fit.

Too bad that's not happening though, he's still crazy expensive.

And we all know how much Sējējs likes well-known surnames. Hossa, Kariya, Giroux, Carle. Why not bring another Ruzicka to Riga? I guess also K.Ozoliņ spot on the team is safe for the next season, A.Ozoliņ is undoubtedly a candidate as well.

But it's the same every year, isn't it? I don't think you were very high on Robinson and Wilson either. At least I weren't, that I know for sure.

Still have prodigal son Darzins leading a pack of maturing skilled forwards. At least up front and in goal they don't look so bad.

Uhh,yeah its that bad. We have three and half top 6 forwards in Indrašis,Dārziņš,Hossa(is he still on the team?) and Johnson(arguable) and two legit top 4 defenders in Sotnieks who has really matured and showed that at Olympics and Pujacs.

Pujacs is garbage. At Olympics I was screaming when he touched the puck and was the same at Worlds. He aint the same.

Yup. The teams participating - Riga, Lokomotiv, Ak Bars, Dynamo Moscow, SKA. I guess, there should be a sixth team - most likely a non-KHL one.

Dinamo have asked for financial help from the Latvian government and failed to receive any. It's unclear if they will manage to participate next season.

Western division teams dropping out....Jokerit will play in Siberia soon

Not cool at all. If even Riga drops it will be huge image loss for KHL. Though Lev was already bigger loss.

Norway!!! come in now...

I doubt they really asked for government money. I mean, Tretyak made headlines in Latvia with his comment and then Minister for Education said that it is not going to happen. And that doesn't mean anything.

In the same time, putting rumours aside, the camp will take place between July 20 and 31 in Valmiera.
