The recap on SKA's English website, is, in my opinion, unintentionally hilarious. I kinda wish TG would start recapping Devils games like this:
However, as soon as the game started, the guest team seized the initiative: Salavat Yulaev took advantage of their very first power play. While Evgeni Artyukhin was resting on the penalty bench, Ilya Ezhov was beat by Ufa's Mirnov. SKA struggled to tie the game but was unable to cheer the full Ice palace up before the first intermission
I'm not sure I buy it. Saying a guy from Calgary is gonna buy the Devils and move them to Quebec because he's Canadian is like saying a guy from Boston is gonna buy the Devils and move them to Albuquerque because he's American. Maybe he has ties there, maybe he wouldn't care where he put the team, but if he's not buying a team to move it back to his hometown (which he obviously isn't), why move it at all?
(Again, all of this is hypothetical anyway, the Devils aren't moving anywhere for the numerous reasons stated throughout this thread.)
So you're saying we shouldn't jump to the most radical assumption based solely on the man's nationality? Huh. Thank God the guy isn't Mexican, or someone would be suggesting that Kovalchuk's halfway to being El Capitan for the Tijuana Diablos
When the draft order is to be selected....I should be picking the positions soon.....we're almost ready to get this mess in gear!
Ah, the super double secret draft order selection process. Invented by Germanic tribes in the 14th Century, it has been passed down through generations, slowly evolving it to the process we (don't) know and love today.
