Youŗe right, those aren't your usual 20 year olds, plus they are coached by PIV. And even that didn't save them from dropping 3 games in a row.

If you don't count the very first game vs Neftyanik and the match-up against the outsider Izhstal, all Loko's encounters to date ended with a 1-2 goal difference.

Announcement per bimbo Bob Mckenzie. Not sure how old the news is but NHL GM Mike Smith who for whatever reason has a Phd in Russian studies will be Working with Lokomotiv. He will serve as administrative consultant, which is just a fancy title. Basically he will be assisting the team in acquiring the best possible free agents (probably from the NHL).

its on TSN NHL home page, he says in the insider trading video. I am pretty sure you can watch the video from any country.

When I heard this on TSN, I thought it was perfectly in keeping with Mike Smith's track record.

He was the GM of the first edition Winnipeg Jets for 5 years starting in 1988 and was VERY pro-russian in his approach.

Politically, high end Russian players were available in abundance to North American teams by the time of the 1992 NHL draft, and Mike Smith drafted a LOT of russian players that year:

Sergei Bautin(1st rd.) Boris Mironov(2nd rd.) Alexander Alexeev(6th rd.)
Artur Oktyabrev(7th rd.) Andrei Raisky(another 7th rd. pick) Nikolai Khabibulin(9th rd.)Evgeny Garanin(10th rd.) and Andrei Karpovtsev & Ivan Vologjaninov, both in the 11th rd.

Mike Smith invested 4 of the Jets' 10 picks in 1991 and 5 of the Jets' 13 picks in 1993 on Russian players.

He drafted Alexei Zhamnov in the 4th and Sergei Selyanin in the 11th rd. of 1990.

Mr. Smith was also the first NHL general manager to bring in a Russian assistant coach; Zinetula Bilyaledtinov and even a Russian for the Jets' communications dept; Igor Kuperman.

Interestingly, with the exception of Zhamnov and Khabibulin, none of the Russians Mike Smith drafted had a major impact on the NHL.

Both Boris Mironov and Sergei Bautin played in the NHL for a few years. Interestingly, Mr. Smith created a buzz at the 1992 draft; going "off the board" by drafting Mr. Bautin with the Jets' 1st round pick. It turned out that Sergei Bautin, being at least 26 years old, could have been signed as a free agent by Winnipeg, allowing the team to invest their 1st round pick elsewhere.

He was a physical defenseman in the NHL as well.

I think a lot of fans pictured a Scott Stevens-type when they heard "physical", but there was only one of those to go around.

Just read an interview with Vorovyov where he tells that Loko management almost decided to have 3 teams: KHL, MHL plus a VHL one. PIV mentions that the game in Vyshka is much more intense and physical than in the MHL so that's a good place to stay for those who won't make the KHL team (while returing to MHL will hurt their development).

The rebuild is going well

ridiculous that none of the players from last year are on the roster right now...really messed, even tho they will have a VHL team where the bulk will probably play, and despite the extra amount of foreigners they can sign, I still would have liked to see a few of those guys on the KHL team

Loko can sign 6 foreigners, and I am sure a few guys from VHL team will play KHL.. 3-4 or more.

Weren't all european trained players forced to be drafted before they could be signed up until 2005ish?

F Vadim Khlopotov (94) signed 3y entry deal with Lokomotiv. He was drafted in KHL last year by Lokomotiv, but chose to play CHL. He was ranked by KHL scouts as 5th best skater in Russia (born 1994)

Only one Question. Why he moved to CHL???

I still can't believe this happened, R.I.P to all that perished.

What is going on with the team next year ? Will they play ? Will there be a memorial to remember their fallen brothers ?
