    Godawful Yunost is out and so is Lokomotiv-2. Have there been any rumours of expansion? Barnaul? Or maybe Saransk?

    Khimik is to be revived as an Atlant farm. HC Lipetsk was in talks with the VHL management as well.
    Can't think of anything else.

    Yunost didn't meet Lukashenko's expectations or something like that.

    Khimik was to be revived as the CSKA's farm last year, but something didn't click.

    This time it's the only expansion team they have confidence in.

    they got a lot of borderline KHL players in their inaugural season, and now with the expansion to Vladivostok - those players will be bumped up to the KHL.

    Haven't heard anything so far, Kovac has a 2 or 3 year contract, but I don't know if that matters at all. Macho and Lichanec might go, I think they can play on a weak KHL team. Kovac, I don't know, maybe a backup?

    Macho too old for KHL team as import, russian clubs use to sign 24-26 y old foreingers. Lichanec too old and not good enough, you have better MHLers in all KHL affiliates.

    Kovac could get a chance but is not Russian and russian clubs use to sign foreign G with NT experiance. He has never played for NT as I know. Non-russian KHL teams have goalies, maybe Slovan could hire him as backup, Konrad is leaving according to rumours.

    Can anyone with proper Russian language skills translate me the status of HK Lipetsk's VHL status in this article? Are they in already?

    Toros has a powerful feeder in the face of SU system.

    Batyr-Toplar-Toros-Ak Bars is a nice system to rely on

    Don't say this in Kazan or Ufa. Fans will kill you. "The green derby" is probably the most cutthroat rivalry in KHL.
    Batyr-Tolpar-Toros is a farm system for Salavat Yulaev.

    Balmochnykh calls it a career just as Lipetsk makes debut to the VHL... Wonder why? He had quite the pinball career.

    since iihf didn't allow olimpija to become medvescak's farm team, is there any chance for medvescak to loan some of their players to vhl wihout those international transfer card rules? is vhl governed by the fhr or khl? and which vhl team is closest to zagreb?

    vhl is govern by khl, but I think that Medvescak will not consider VHL club as their "farm team". One call Medvedev-Fasel and problem is solved :sarcasm: to be serious, all the IIHF officials should be fired immidiatelly, they has done many problems for developing hockey in Europe, nothing else.
