RHL: speculation going on?

rumors from switzerland coming says, there´s talks going on on how russian hockey could improve.

- number of import players should be increased to 5.
- to install a minimum number of young players.
- closed shop-system for the league, while being expanded to 18 teams.

by doing so (point 3) they hope to find investors also for the lower teams (improvement on players and infrastructure) as well as money for the support of the next generations.

sounds all good to me, but does anyone have more information on the above?

as no one seems to have any information, here´s what I´ve got - again from swiss media:

- clubs have decided to close the league from RHL to vyshaya for at least the next three years.
- teams playing in the RHL do have to have the following: a good arena, a farmteam and a certain financial background.
now it gets interesting: in case, teams from the vyshaya fulfill the above criteria, they may enter RHL - maximum two per year, which means, RHL could grow to 22 teams within next three years. though I think this is not realistic.

reads like trying to copy the NHL, eh?

season is about to start September 1st - during World Cup... strange, strange... their argument is, that local stars will not be on the WC roster, which´ll consist only of NHL players.

another strange thing: the farmteam of amur khabarovsk will play in the pacific league of japan, china and south korea - due to shorter distances to these countries than to moscow etc.

to sum it all up: I love Mother Russia....

No Steblin said that if a player had to go to the WOrld Cup, it wouldn't be a problem. And Tverdovsy WILL go!
