Our next game will be from the first round of RSL playoffs.

RSL Game of the Week: Salavat Yulayev Ufa @ CSKA Moscow 02.23.2008

Salavat Yulayev Ufa @ CSKA Moscow

Here’s another chance to see the Russian Super League leaders Salavat Yulayev Ufa in action, this time against CSKA Moscow.

We have pretty much sung all the praises we could muster for Salavat in some of our previous RSL Game of the Week posts. They have been the dominant team all season long. It is to be expected considering all the money oil giant Bashneft have invested into what is the most offensively gifted line-up in the RSL (the Ufa club’s 3rd and 4th line consists of players who were leaders of their former teams) and that their ultimate goal for this season is to win the Russian championship.

This should be yet another great game. The CSKA Ice Palace, home of the Russian Red Army team, as CSKA is known in the West, is absolutely packed with fans for the visit of the league leaders and the atmosphere is rocking.

Why Don Cherry is a Complete Idiot

We just came upon this little gem and decided that we really don’t have to add much to it since Don makes such an excellent case for being a complete idiot all by himself.

Yes, we know, Don. You would like the World Cup to be called the Canada Cup and have it played between Canada A and Canada B. In case it needs a couple more teams to fill it out throw Canada C and Canada D in there as well.

Why does hockey even have international tournaments? Where do all these foreigners get off playing a game invented in Canada anyway? (This is to be said with a tone of rightful indignation).

After all, Don would rather watch a game between a team of Canadian plumbers versus a team of Canadian lumberjacks. Preferably wearing one of Don’s suits and no pants. That would be far more exciting.

RSL Game of the Week: Dinamo Moscow @ Salavat Yulayev Ufa 02.19.2008

Dinamo Moscow @ Salavat Yulayev Ufa

The storied Russian franchise Dinamo Moscow, which has fallen on hard times recently under their new Czech coach Vladimír Vůjtek, faces a huge challenge away at the brand spanking new Bashneft Arena to take on this season’s undisputed king of the Russian Super League, Salavat Yulayev of Ufa. Salavat’s green monsters, thanks to Bashneft’s oil revenue, have a roster that is the envy of the rest of the league and are able to roll out four lines of pure skill.

You can watch the game in the streaming player or download the file to your computer by clicking the “Open Containing Folder” link below the player, right clicking the file and selecting the “download” option.

We recommend the free VLC media player for playing it.
