I hope Riga can take this, and generally avoid the last-place finish from last season.

I'm rooting for all KHL teams with lowest budgets. Last season, Slovan was the KHL's most cost-effective team, making the play-offs despite the KHL's lowest budget. This season, too, Slovan is ranked #27 out of 28 teams in terms of payroll, but the team's goal has been stated clearly: repeating last season's playoff appearance.

Yes, it's awful. On the other hand, Mytischi Arena look much bigger (and very nice too) than the real capacity is.

Metallurg Nk 3:2 Sibir - surprising result in my opinion. Hudacek just 82%.
I'm looking forward to Riga v. Minsk game, it's on TV. Go Riga Go.

Both Spartak and Atlant jerseys look great. The game just started.

Really nice game with lots of scoring opportunities and brilliant goaltending between Atlant and Spartak. A little wonder though that Spartak still have their one-goal lead.

Dinamo Riga - Dinamo Minsk 2:0 so far. Meija and Wilson.

At the moment I don't see how Minsk can save the game, but of course a lot of time to play still.

Wow. Jeff Glass could be the best transfer of Spartak in a long time! He did an amazing job and earned the first shutout of this KHL season to give his team the chance for a 2-0 win! Atlant just didn't get past him!

Dinamo Riga - Dinamo Minsk 2:1 (2:0, 0:0, 0:1)
1:29 Meija (Hossa), 9:38 Wilson (Hossa, K. Rēdlihs), 46:35 Micflikier (Krajicek)
Shots: 20-17
Goalies: Tellqvist - Lalande

Good that we won and had we played like first two periods I'd be happy but the first half of the third period when we just waited for the game to end... and consequently got a goal in was terrible. Still a lot of chaos in the team and if we want to fight for play-offs we'll need to turn our chances into goals.

Hard to judge teams after the first game but well... Minsk will have to do a lot if they want to achieve anything. Two periods they were completely out of the game and only when we started to ***** around, they started to get chances.

But oh well, 3 points is three points.

It's weird how Marcel Hossa always plays so well for Riga but not so well anywhere else. He's extremely unpopular among Slovak fans due to his perceived failures on the Slovak national team. I guess having a superstar brother doesn't help to win him appreciation, either.

Yeah somehow he can play well in Riga, I guess he really likes the city, club and fans and he's well liked here.

I suppose he also always plays on the 1st line in Riga, which sure helps a player to be productive... whereas he'd be pushed to a lower line on most other teams, including the Slovak national team, and then the backlash immediately sets in. Although I remember he also played a number of games on the New York Rangers 1st line alongside Jįgr, but it didn't last long.

Currently he isn't on the first line of Dinamo though he was in previous years. But it's the second line and could as well be first during the season if Indrašis and Co are not that productive.

Awww...first day on the job as a Sibir fan and they lose

Hopefully I can find some highlights later. Looks like the Finnish trio of Lehterä, Enlund and Koskiranta is going to be counted on heavily to provide offense. They had a lot more shifts and TOI than any other forward on the team.

On defense, it appears Konstantin Alexeyev is sort of the face of the franchise despite having very little offensive stats in his career. Was the guy in the Sibir photo-shoot of the jerseys, has been an ever-present fixture since debuting with Sibir as an 18 year-old seven seasons ago and today led the Sibir's defense in TOI.

Outshot Metallurg Nk 34-17 but Hovinen stopped 32.

Here you go:

Seems that Sibir's goaltending could have been better.

After the game interviews, first bit is with Ābols in Latvian so you won't understand that (he talks about how Riga still needs to have a more even game etc.), the next bit is with Minsk coach in Russian that many might understand and the last one is English with kyle Wilson from the locker room.

Atlant-Spartak... saw first 26 or so minutes after switching to Riga's game and it seemed a fun game. Seems like Spartak scored a ''derogatory nickname of Dynamo Moscow/Russian police'' goal and then Glass kept them into the game.

I think the GDTs are an excellent idea, what do you think about making them a sticky some time before game day itself until the day after. To make them more manageable and visible while they are the most important.

I'm not a mod and I heard their policy is to keep the number of sticky threads to a minimum. So I'm not sure about that.

If you ask me, the sticky threads here in the KHL section seem more hidden than the regular threads. There are so many sticky threads they are not very visible to me. In fact, I preferred the arrangement from early last season, when the "General KHL thread" was a regular thread instead of a sticky one.
