We were thinking about what we should write for our first post and decided that our nice little write-up for the About section will serve as a perfect introduction of our site to you, so here we go.
This website is for the English speaking fans of hockey, Russian style. Our main goal is to provide irreverent coverage of the Russian Super League (considered by most experts to be the second best hockey league in the world) as well as commentary on the performance of Russian born players in the NHL as well as other North American and European leagues.
The focus will definitely be on the Russian Super League (RSL) as we aim to fill the void of its coverage in English and will try to bring a light hearted, humorous style of writing to it. However, we’ll sure give plenty of attention to the Russian-born NHLers as well.
Here’s the kicker. We will also give you an opportunity to actually watch RSL games with our RSL Game of the Week feature so that you can make up your own mind about the quality of the league, follow your team’s Russian prospects or catch up with some former NHLers. We feel that it’s about time North American fans had a chance to see the RSL for themselves. As they say, it’s always better to see once than to hear about it a thousand times.
Welcome to the site and we hope you enjoy your stay.
