    They always return to blue in one form or another, but I don't think it has that strong of a tradition regardless. Compared to other Finnish teams Jokerit seems less connected to any particular colors and that was so already before their KHL adventure.

    Red, yellow and blue. Plus the GOAT jerseys:

    I criticized pretty much everything that exists on the face of earth here in this section but Jokerit's black jersey is not gonna be one of them. I find them very sexy and cool. Coupled with the new scoreboard and style of the league (no idea what it's called altogether... interface? layout? design?) it feels very modern and energetic. I totally love it. Though admittedly, I don't know much about Jokerit's own traditions and previous jerseys - so maybe it looks atrocious and completely unrelated to the club tradition but for a neutral like me, it rocks.

    Unbearable again to watch these games. Just get rid of Marjamäki, hes the worst coach on that level ever. When he coached the National Team it was absolute mess, now Jokerit is total mess as long as he gets to be there.

    I've gotten used to the black jerseys now, so they do at least look way better now than when they first got released, but I have to say that it is still a weird move to change from the blue jerseys that have been used for several years and has become a true part of the club's identity...

    Certainly this is the end of the Niemi experiment?

    Jokerit got 430K euros tv money share from the league. So that's over half less than what Liiga club get from the tv contract with Telia... I still remember how Roman Rotenberg said they'd get millions from tv contracts they could negotiate for themselves, showing how he didn't understand the league's negotiating policy while severely overestimating the interest. Good times...

    Niemi has looked very slow and clumsy. Unless there's a nagging injury hindering his movement, I predict Niemi to be a massive failure for Jokerit. They will be forced to play Kalnins and look for a replacement. Joni Ortio is still available (who should've been hired instead of Niemi in the first place)...

    KHL has its own TV channel in Russia while Telia owns exclusive Liiga rights.

    Who could've seen this coming :sarcasm: I never understood why they went with Niemi in his final years over Ortio

    That's a one-club market, essentially Jokerit is having to carry the entire league in the region alone.

    Regarding this... Isn't this a share from the KHL only? Because Jokerit push the demand for KHL TV? or am I wrong here. Like if Jokerit want to go sign a deal with X CHANNEL FINALND SPORTS for €42m per season aren't they open to do that?

    No, that's the deal KHL negotiated with Viasat who have the rights. KHL negotiates the rights for all tv contracts. Clubs can't do it separately. Viasat Finland have the NHL, KHL and Premier League rights in Finland. Other channels don't even have the money (already have enough/too many rights) nor the interest.

    Thanks, well €400k pays for around 1 player doesn't it?

    This team looks too old and slow especially with forwards. Regin, Kontiola, Pihlström, Joensuu, Anttila etc.

    Marko Anttila has come back down to earth fast after the World Championships: 7 games played with only one assist and no goals.

    Jokerit needs faster and more physical forwards but there are not many available.

    Speed is about the only thing Pihlström's got.

    It wasn't a problem for the same players last year.

    And Pihlstrom not fast and not physical? Really?

    Pihlström is old and not as fast as he used to be.

    But yes they should play better. Against Minsk they looked like a tired and slow bunch of old hasbeens.

    He is still much faster than 90% of KHLers.

    Also Mäenalanen, Norman, Moses, Ikonen and O'Neill are all fast skaters so speed is not the main problem. They lack a proper starting goaltender and I'm afraid Marjamäki doesn't know how to implement a good enough defensive structure.

    Honestly, Niemi might be the worst investment any KHL team has made this year. The guy just can't win games anymore.
