I agree they did a very good job with uniforms without doing a complete overhaul with the logo or anything.

Mozyakin still rocking on what a laser shot OMG.

I was really excited about Kunlun joining but now looking at their Team Finland roster its kinda boring. I'd have preferred them to be loaded with Russian players, it would seem more authentic at least in a Russian league

Give them time... I think Yurzinov wanted to go for some Finns he knew in order not to mess up badly in first season. As time passes and the team finds its place in the league, I'm sure we'll see a more diverse and authentic Kunlun. I'm actually looking forward to seeing how the Chinese guys will do. This season and in future. Five seasons later, if Red Star Kunlun consisted mainly of Chinese players who are at KHL level... That would be more than impressive. Fifty years later, when my grandkids watch them in awe, I'll proudly say, "Meh, I remember the day this team was formed with a bunch of noobs losing games here and there" and slowly walk away as a cool grandpa.

Yes definitely will be interesting and fun to see how the Chinese players hold up. I just hope that, in time, they do more a more Chinese team.

That's the beauty of the KHL. 20 something teams in Russia, 1 in Finland, Croatia, Slovakia, Kazakhstan, China, Belarus etc.

If Kunlun is helping the hockey community to grow worldwide, everyone wins. I hope hockey becomes popular in China.

Monya - Torchenyuk - Golyshev completely owning Sibir today, could be a sweet line. Kinda funny Monya gets to play Sibir in his first game back to the league and wrecks face so hard. Torchenyuk is also emerging as a 1C, offensively at least, which is great news to VHL, and Avto, and everyone involved, really.

Sibir, meanwhile, really need to get a decent backup. You can't gift points away like that in this league just because you have a cardboard goalie.

You can say that they... wait for it... torched Sibir
Nice start from Kuznya. Kirill Lebedev with a sick goal and an assist a la young Ovechkin.

Welp after that 1st period its settled then, Riga will be the last team in the West. The only intrigue left is will they also be last team in the whole league?

Also, on Telegin, it seems incredible to me that CSKA is losing him to the World Cup of Hockey.

Why? He really belongs there, I'd think Jets should give him another try too. He would be a great 4th liner.

He's a KHL player, the KHL season has started. This would be like a club refusing to let someone play in the Olympics, except the WCH isn't even that.

And what's at stake for CSKA here? They aren't going to get in the playoffs because they let him play? Just more time to give their youngsters.

I'm not saying Telegin is great or anything, but CSKA obviously value him.

I am saying he is pretty great at what he does but even so, CSKA has nothing to lose. There is no real case to make to not let him go.

But he is likely the 13th forward. If that's the case, just use someone from NA.

If they want to send best lineup possible why should they not invite someone? Overall why are you worried about Telegin who was merely a 3rd liner last year when SKA is losing their 2 top centers? I just can't really see your angle why do you not want him to go so much.

I should have been more clear. I don't want any KHLers going because we are in season. So Dadonov and Shipachyov should stay here too. Use Kalinin, Galiev, whoever.

SKA is sending Shipachyov, Dadonov and Datsyuk over for the WCH and they don't seem to mind. They won't miss the playoffs because of that. The IIHF needs to have the NHL and KHL schedule international breaks together.

Any idea why Minsk's season kicks off only on 09/06? They basically have 2 weeks more to prepare the season. Maybe because Scrivens has to learn russian/belarusian?

That's because they want to do their very best to prepare for Olympic quals.

KHL is run by cool bosses I think. I love this flexibility.

- Boss, may I take a week off?
- What, a whole week? For what?
- To prepare for Olympic qualifiers.
- Say no more!

or,

- Is it OK if I started season so late that I will have played only 2 games when others are already at 5 and 6?
- But why?
- Just wanna make sure my ice is OK.
- Sure, go ahead!
