History of Russian (USSR) Hockey

Hello,

I am a student at Western Michigan University. I am currently doing a project on the history of Russian (and USSR) hockey and how it has affected the NHL and wondered if there was anyone available to give personal input.

As you can imagine, getting information on the history of hockey in the USSR is quite difficult and I believe it is not a complete story without talking about the methodology and structure of their championship hockey teams, and later, the defection of players to the NHL and the resurgence of the KHL.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am available by PM.

Thank you,
Erin

Here is one piece of information for you: Russian hockey rules! Sorry, couldn't help it.

The reason for that is that I have been approached many times before with similar questions, people take on a subject they think they can get easily information on and then they come to Russian hockey followers and ask them to do the project for them.

But if you really want help you need to do a lot of research on the following things:
1. Bandy (Russian hockey on a big ice)
2. Bobrov (hockey and soccer player)
3. Tretiak
4. Tarasov (Soviet coach)
5. CSKA (Legendary club)
6. Tikhonov (Soviet coach)

It is not intention to have you "do the project". The USSR was famous for being very closemouthed about pretty much everything, therefore there is no easy way for anyone else to get any information whatsoever. I believe that I mentioned that in the first post, therefore I already acknowledged that it is not easy information to get. Give me a bit of credit here- I'm not an idiot.

Primarily, I am looking for information on how the USSR chose and trained their hockey players in the middle to late 20th century and how players defecting to the NHL affected their hockey programs.

I have a lot of information on the list you gave me, but isn't bandy a lot like field hockey on ice?

Look through the History of Hockey forum many people there would be quite ebullient in discussing Soviet hockey.
