I am not saying they should not rush things; it's just maybe they don't think it's necessary since not much will change. What difference would it make for teams to know about schedule? As long as they are fine, fans can wait.
Well, as far as I am speaking for Riga, the announcements made by Dinamo Riga management are worrying and indicate that they have problems finding money - Latvian media are speculating that Dinamo might as well not play in 16/17. They have 4 signed players.. Yet, otherwise it seems 'business as usual'. Camp dates are set, exhibition tournament is announced, etc.

And I guess the situation is the same for the rest of clubs 'on notice'. Thus it seems that there is notable uncertainty (that has been present in all KHL pre-seasons before..) instead of no need to rush.

On one hand, situation was very similar last year. On the other, if they couldn't resign Dzerins things are really bad. I don't think Riga not playing is an actual possibility as Russians would come in with the funds needed for the team to survive if there would be no other way but strength of the roster might be at Kuznya level in that case.

Not that it was much higher lately anyway.

The dude writing the news is probably bored. I mean, it's much easier to write "Red Star is the only expansion team and there is no demotion" or something like that instead of listing all 29 teams. Anyways, good news. Here is another round of Riga, Amur, Severstal, Vityaz and Medvescak suffering... Maybe Vityaz will not be that poor this time, let's see.

Vityaz have actually had a few good signings this off season. Is it enough to get them in the playoffs, we'll see.

As for this whole demotion thing, I'm not really sure where that comes from. There's nowhere to demote KHL teams. They are either in the league or they are not.

As for just shedding teams, that is not healthy at all. You will have a hard time attracting big time sponsors to the league when you have teams dropping like flies. Better to find stronger markets for them, and move the franchise then just simply shedding teams.

I don't know, their moves seem pretty lateral to me, like every year. Maybe they got slightly better but surely not enough to jump into the playoffs on merit. They can get lucky though, everyone can.

Also, it doesn't look like they have a real goalie on the contract yet so that's kinda big deal.

The only reason to watch Vityaz will be German Rubtsov.

Spartak has a better shot.

You underestimate them. They are not a contender for sure, but they have a shot at being respectable and beat some good teams.

Schedule was announced but was there any word on division realignment. Assuming Beijing goes to Chernyshev division, i was wondering if Salavat Ufa is moving to the Kharlamov division.

Hey what do you guys think of Korshkov, Bobylov and Chebykin?

3 new Leafs prospects. Any good?

Korshkov should have a breakout anytime now on KHL level. Big guy with some ofensive skill. Let's see how the coach uses his young guns. Last year they had a line of rookies, but partly due to injuries. Anyway, that line was great.

Chebykin is all about size,but has some offence too. I reserve judgement on whether he is a future NHLer until in a couple of years though.

Bobylyov should ge some ice time with Spartak. If he still has it ater 2 years in the WHL, he might become a useful player. But let's see how he fares against men first.

Power is still power. Osala actually helps Magni's fitness coach with his tips and knowledge. Osala will educate himself in that fitness coaching department more after his playing career ends. It's something he wants to do.

Hi GX

I've seen news for the last few seasons about Dinamo struggling with money. I've also seen that they'd likely move to Sweden SHL. Is there any truths in this?

Obviously I'd much prefer we stay in the KHL but we never seem to recruit properly.

REALLY?! Is that even an option? I think they would have to start from bottom in this case. SHL is an open national league which works on a promotion & relegation system.

Exactly! This is why I'd like a more informed source on the matter of - What happens if Dinamo leave KHL.

Judging by preseason, Torpedo is a safe bet.

I have a question especially for our Russian-speaking friends: is/will there be any lengthy, rich-in-content preview for KHL before the season starts? I mean, each team is evaluated with who has come or gone and with other aspects. Not just names and two words about what we can expect about team. It can be provided by a single blog, newspaper, portal etc. or could be assembled. I said "especially for our Russian-speaking friends" because I honestly don't think there will be such a good, rich work in English language, so I am OK with Russian. However, I am not good enough to browse all sources and find them by myself.

Reading previews about every single team before season start is sometimes even better than the hockey itself, so I'd be more than happy to find some.

A bonus question: do you guys have "betting newspapers" in Russia, published for betting advices by "experts" who kinda do the job of providing previews? If yes, do you know if those newspapers also sell in Ukraine?

there are some previews in english.

This in russian. It is not classic preview, but good articles if you love stats. KHL published same articles for every clubs who played last season.
