    AHL lost some very entertaining fighters. Both to Vityaz.

    And the saga continues. This season, they take their insane fights to Europe.

    It's like Jersey Shore.

    Kip Brennan is also rumored to have signed or will sign with them too.

    I never really jumped on the Mirasty bandwagon. Yeah, he goes toe to toe and is short, but I'm just not a fan of him for some reason.

    Sucks Yabo isn't gonna stay in North America. I'd love for him to sign with Albany :)

    Vityaz Chekhov are an absolute disgrace to the sport, they seem to have found a niche providing nothing but goonery while the other KHL teams actually try to play hockey. I'm not convinced they're actually built to win hockey games.

    Vityaz's owner really loves the rough stuff. I wonder if he's Don Cherry's half-brother or something. I guess if it's selling tickets...

    Haha, as soon as I saw the title I knew who signed them.

    They should just go all the way and sign Steve Bosse. He barely qualifies as a player, but it's not like they care about winning.

    I went to high school with both back in Meadow Lake and hung out with Yabo quite a bit since his dad and mine were Legion buddies. I would imagine living in Russia won't be too big of a stretch from home for them...minus the language barrier of course....The bars there better stock up on Pilsner though.

    Vityaz Chekhov is the weirdest hockey team on this planet. The owner sitting in his box, sporting wood as North American and Russian goons he buys beat the crap out of other teams.

    I'm pretty sure Steve Bosse would be a top 3 in the NHL.

    I heard the owners are a bunch of thugs so I guess it makes sense they ice rough teams. Atleast they actually got some decent enforcers this year.:laugh:. Verot, Gratton, and grandpa Simon is a disgrace lineup to "goonery" lol. Verot couldnt fight his way out of a paper bag when he was in N.A then was all badass when he went to Europe.:laugh:

    Only Vityaz... but atleast their team is fun to watch:D.

    They're the only KHL team (heck, probably on Euro team) that I like!

    Makes sense, since they more or less grew up together. Russia is a long way from Meadow Lake and Flying Dust, boys. Hope they do well.

    They'll become 30-40 point players in the KHL.

    As soon as I saw the title I though "Vityaz Chekhov". No surprise there.

    If Vityaz signed Huberdeau and McNeill in their stead then I would have believed that they would like to rebuild clean. They're also one of the younger teams in the KHL.

    Also, there are home games where they don't even manage to sell 1,000 tickets (in an arena that can contain 2,000 or so)

    Mirasty and Yablonski aren't even going to score 20 points in the KHL; the ones they are slated to replace, Sugden and Gratton (Gratton signed with Barys Astana, Sugden got his contract bought out before Verot was done serving his suspension) scored, on their best KHL years, 5-7 points or so. A 40-point player, in the KHL, would probably outscore every single Vityaz player. They already signed Tarnasky in to provide more than just thuggery.

    I think he would be too. He's dropped Mirasty how many times? He's a bad player even for the LNAH, though.

    We got stuck with Mirasty for like 8-10 games last year. The guy was really a waste. Nobody picked a fight with him, but even more he wouldn't throw the body around or anything. I had to figure his AHL days were numbered and i'm sure no AA team wanted to waste the $$$ to sign him.

    The best thing we got out of Mirasty was this:

    We didn't see this one in person but I stumbled acrossed it on YouTube:

    Do you know that Vityaz's GM is former NHLer Alexei Zhamnov and head coach is Andrei Nazarov.

    I find this not surprising, but still hilarious.

    I don't think even Cherry would go for this nonsense. It really is a black eye on the sport.

    Based on Mirasty's skating ability I'll be surprised if he even puts up more than 10 points on the bigger ice surface.

    While the above comment does sound crappy, good luck to a Flying Dust boy! :)

    Considering he put up 7 points (and just 1 goal) in 182 career AHL games, I'd say that's a pretty safe bet. He'll probably put up 300-500 PIMs per year like most Vityaz goons, though.
