No, not so. KHL did not abandon.
But today there is no precise information.
Yes they did. Man, if you have no info, just accept it.
— СКА в этом сезоне будет участвовать в так называемом эксперименте по уменьшению площадок? Или его уже отменили? (Игорь Сергеев)
— Я думаю, после того, как было принято решение по льду для Олимпиады, тема отпала сама собой. В Сочи мы будем играть на катках того образца, что сейчас используется в КХЛ. Значит, эти обсуждения как минимум до 2014 года следует закрыть. Будем играть на большом льду. Хотя мое личное мнение остается прежним: катки надо уменьшать. Это придаст игры динамичности, больше борьбы будет в игре. Хоккей станет интереснее.
In your opinion, which russian forward should be signed by 1 or 2 lines of Salavat Yulaev?
Hmmm.... I just wonder what you'll do if your old legends end their careers... How long will Morozov be in AK Bars... Sushinski... Sure, by that time you might get Datsyuk, Semin or Ovi back... still.
I don't think the limit on imports helps the league to grow... It only leads to pensioners being signed by spending large money. All due respect to Sushinski but he's already 37... But there's really nobody to sign from Russians for a team like SYU... unless you can get Datsyuk or Semin back from NHL
So it hinders the developement of the game in the KHL...
Nothing would happen if a team was able to sign 7-8 foreigners or any number they like... I doubt they'd all start buying foreigners because let's be realistic... there aren't that much top talent left that it could flood KHLs 32 teams... and it would allow the clubs not to overpay old stars that might ultimately do more harm than good to team (we've seen how far has SKA gone in play-offs with old guys who just want their paycheck.... Sushinski already won the Russian league in 2004, does he really want another win? He just wants to live in his home country and collect his money....)

The Romazan Memorial Tournament got under way in Magnitogorsk today. All the headlines were grabbed by the game between Vityaz and Salavat Yulaev, which finished in a 4-11 thrashing of the Chekhov men, who also contrived to earn themselves 175 minutes of penalties for brawling. video:http://allhockey.ru/news/103675/
The Bashkortostan President's Cup in Ufa reached its finale today.
It was already clear on the eve of today’s games that no-one could catch Yugra, but the Khanty-Mansiysk men nonetheless produced another brilliant performance, winning their final game 5-3 against Neftekhimik. In the later game hosts Salavat Yulaev suffered a 2-5 defeat at the hands of Metallurg Magnitogorsk.
At the end of the tournament mementos were awarded to the best players: Yugra goaltender Mikhail Biryukov, Salavat Yulaev defenseman Vitaly Atyushov, Metallurg forward Alexei Kaygorodov, and the tournament’s top scorer, Ufa’s Alexander Radulov.
Salavat Yulaev Ufa celebrated its 50th anniversary in style with a 4-2 win over Avangard Omsk. The defending champion may still be struggling for consistency after the departure of head coach Sergei Mikhailov, but produced an improved performance to mark the big day with a big win. Igor Mirnov put up 1+1 – including the game-winning third goal – to lead the way for the hosts and ensure that Alexander Frolov’s pair for Avangard didn’t spoil the party. Salavat’s leading scorer, Oleg Saprykin, was on the mark again with his 11th goal of the season, while Alexander Radulov weighed in with an assist on Sergei Zinoviev’s goal to put the game beyond the visitors’ reach.
