Increasing the competition in VHL and below like call ups from farm to first KHL team.
there are call up, you mentioned two of them

I still don`t know why wasting roster places with players who has absolutelly no interests to playing hockey.

See aFAILogenov for exam...
Because he has/had contract? Because club is obligated to fullfill contract?

The move to lowering the foreign players in KHL team from 5 to 3 is not good either.

The FHR acts like their are ******** really.

And hes is obligated to play full season not only half, he is obligated to achieve their expectations with hockey performance which is good maybe for VHL.
If he was still in NHL he will be send right to semi-professional or amateur league.

SKA decided not to send him to VHL, what is the problem? It is not so easy to send a guys with one-way deal to minors or to trade him (big salary) or to buy out the contract. Another case is Skoula who was sent to czech 1 league.

Still, Afinogenov is leaving SKA to play for Vityaz.

It's a legacy of the Soviet Union sometimes, these industrial names. Too late to change anything.

To get the full impression, take some names of players: this, this, this, this, this, this and the last one

I've been following the KHL for a few seasons now and I like the league a lot.

I strongly disagree with the CFL NFL analogy, but will say that they are completely different leagues and are hard to compare.

You mentioned that you were into it during the lockout while there was no NHL; and in the ay that you can follow the leagues without conflict. Most games happen in the early afternoon, sometimes at 11am, if you are Eastern Time. So you can check/stream during work or whatever. Also as mentioned earlier, the season starts nice and early in September so its 2 mounts before the NHL; perfect to satisfy that hockey craving in the summer. Some teams with a strong Canadian(NA) contingency are Vityaz, Lokomotiv, and Metallurg Magnitagorsk among others. The latter is the one I follow, and the team coached by Paul Maurice and now Iron Mike. Really good club.

Over the years, the English has been improving tremendously. Before it was clear that some understanding/comprehension of Russian was necessary. Now the names are in English, virtually every site has an English version and independent English sites follow it more. Therefore it is easy to follow now even with 0 knowledge of foreign languages.

it's just how european teams are named in sports; just like the FC Barcelona's and Arsenal FC's of the world that sound a lot more reasonable because they're in english

What's wrong with the team names? And which teams are you specifically referring to?

I would have to agree... I have always wondered how the KHL was as I have seen that in the Hockey News sometimes and wanted to see what was up with that...plus I know of some games that started at 9 am my time and I was able to see some on my off days from work and school.. perfect enough that I can do it again in September for sure...

I have noticed that and was like huh but reasoned that maybe it has to be connected with the specific areas or type of things like businesses or specific things that make the specific cities more known well enough...

NO I was just like wow at some of the names.. hard to write these names out and having to spell them completely so I would get to know these teams well enough to check them out more often.. I do hope to be able to know which teams are playing often enough so am trying to get in more games to watch over the next season or so...

Ari-Pekka Selin to coach Barys? Raimo Helminen to help him? Selin from HPK/SM-Liiga, Helminen no job.

It will be 54 games next season. Everybody plays with each other twice.

The season starts at September 4. September 7 is the Lokomotiv day, nobody plays. Three days for the All-Stars. There will be a few matchdays after the Olympics. The playoffs start at the first days of March.

The schedule will be released in a week.

Selin/Helminen at Barys... Selin, while being a good coach, hardly speaks English. Helminen, well he hardly speaks. Seriously though, Helminen hasn't shown anything worthwhile as a coach, seems once again he's trying to take a far too big of a bite.

Torpedo is already in the East, Medvescak will be most likely in the division with Lev and Slovan. Everything will be said next week.

Exactly. And the overall playoffs (with no divisions and conferences) could be a real thing if KHL wanted it.

Another good reason why should Tretyak leave his post and give it to someone who lives in Russia not in USSR...

http://www.webhokej24.sk/rusko/khl-r...iadok-na-zvaze

Because mixing "old school" players who remembers USSR and players of modern hockey with date of birth 85 and younger is very bad idea.

Follow up article about the experiment with the Loko team and this power train sports. Apparently Varly and player agent Gandler made the recommendation to Yakovlev... If there are results, then it is expected that other KHL teams will follow suit.. Interesting to note that Burmistrov, Orlov, Varly, Galiev are clients there as are Nichushkin and next years draft prospects Lyamkin and Yazkov.

1) Gandler has his claws deep in Russian player affairs it seems.
2) This guy has said to have incredible results with the players, so why not hire him to run a facility in Russia so the all the Russian guys dont have to fly over there every summer?
