And reinforce the roster during the off season.

that being said, im not sure how they can handle Neftyanik on the 12th. Nevermind Donbass, Rubin, etc.
I am willing to put forth some money, that by the middle of next season the count of this player on the KHL roster will be minimal. Apalkov, Yashin, Galimov, Kartaev, Yakovlev mb on the 4th line .

Middle of next, maybe. But im sure one of them can break out. Lots of the kids on the u-20 roster make the KHL teams.

But its not even that. I think it depends on the model that Lokomotiv wants to pursue. If they want to be a top team seeding well into the playoffs, then yeah you are probably right. But that might not be realistic. It depends of how they want to rebuild.

If their rebuild is a little more gradual, and for example if they have no playoff demands or maybe a 3yr time line for a top return than I think it is more likely that those players have more serious roles on the team. It really depends on how much they will spend in the off season and who they can attract/draft/acquire.

Here's a good interview with Yakovlev: http://fhr.ru/content/news/9561.html

He says that in 12/13 two lines will consist out of the young players. The year in the VHL is needed to decide which guys will be ready to play in the KHL. It will also help their development, since VHL is an upgrade over the MHL.

by no means this score is the result of the team's strength, and I have mixed feelings on this decision to create a VHL teams, but none of this matters today, as the game is in memory of the fallen team. The real strength of this squad will be seen in 5-10 games when enthusiasm runs out, and professional qualities kick in.

Maybe you are right (though PIV can do wonders with a young team), but right now I'm genuinely happy for Loko, I enjoyed their first game from the very beginning to the last minute. Gimayev said that Loko decided against playing in the VHL playoffs, but he was wrong, the team rejected the bye only, they will play if they get in. I wish them good luck and hope that they will return to the KHL as the reigning champions of Vyshka.

I agree with you, I am just trying to look at the bigger picture here. As far as the champion of Vyshka, I think Donbass is penciled in for that title, with Rubin may be the only team able to stop them, but I doubt it.

Donbass vs Rubin is the most likely scenario (and I don't know why you write off Rubin, since they've already won both meetings in the regular season), but everyone loves upsets

because the game that really (had any competitive significance) mattered (Continental Cup) was won by Donbass, plus I look at the rosters as well.

based on the shots for and against I am pretty sure other teams are taking it easy on them no on purpose but rather subconsciously. Let's see what happens 10 games down the road.

It seemed that way when Neftyanik was playing vs Loko. Especially in the 1st period. Teams have their playoff spots on the line, so I assume they'll start taking Loko seriously very soon.

I get that kids gathered on Lokomotiv roster are no plugs, but my opinion off VHL hockey has suffered immensely seeing well is Yaroslavl doing currently.

Anton Klementiev is back to Lokomotive, his attempt to play in NA always confused me - he was clearly not good enough, and now he can use the back to his original team in times of hardship excuse, while he's clearly failed to make it in NA.
