    Wow — neat post, nm. So much for NHL players being lured away by big bucks in Russia.

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Josh Gorges on Montreal’s attack: “They’re comin’, they’re comin’ and they keep comin’. Just line after line, wave after wave…”

    Check out the Sports section of the Gazette (Sports tab ,top of page).Several good articles including Red Fisher’s story about a Schneider/Roy altercation.Red still hasn’t forgiven Patrick for the way he left.

    KHL – KHL – KHL ….. NHL Season finally begins at noon today EST>
    The league’s salary cap is set at 620 million rubles, which is about $24-million (U.S.). Under Review does a nice job of converting all 24 team salaries to the U.S. dollar, something that gives you an idea of the inequity in the league’s salary structure:

    1 Lokomotiv Yaroslavl $18.7-million
    2 Avangard Omsk $17.1-million
    3 Atlant Mytishchi $16.9-million
    4 Severstal Cherepovets $16.3-million
    5 Metallurg Magnitogorsk $15.7-million
    6 Salavat Yulaev Ufa $15.4-million
    7 SKA Saint Petersburg $15.4-million
    8 Ak Bars Kazan $15.3-million
    9 CSKA Moscow $14.5-million
    10 Lada Togliatti $12.8-million
    11 Torpedo Nizhny Novg. $12.8-million
    12 Barys Astana $12.1-million
    13 Dynamo Moscow $11.3-million
    14 Spartak Moscow $9.4-million
    15 Sibir Novosibirsk $8.6-million
    16 Neftekhimik Nizhnekam. $8.3-million
    17 Metallurg Novokuznetsk $8.2-million
    18 Vityaz Chekhov $8-million
    19 Traktor Chelyabinsk $7.6-million
    20 MVD $7.5-million
    21 Amur Khabarovsk $7.4-million
    22 Dinamo Riga $5.8-million
    23 Dinamo Minsk $4.3-million
    24 Khimik Voskresensk $4.3-million

    In other words, Sidney Crosby makes more dough than about 40 per cent of KHL teams. And I’m guessing there’s no salary floor .. by James Mirtle.
