Witnessing all those classy moves by NHL, I fully expect Battman demands money LAK saved on Voynov contract to pay off that b**** who's sueing our innocent little boy Patric +20c to compensate him overpaying that taxi ride.
Not sure if you're Canadian, but I'm guessing a lot of Canadians would feel this way. They hated him during the Summit Series because he was the USSR's best player, but they respected his unique skill and grew to like him over time. Dying at an early age also helped his myth.
No secret why he was the first Russian skater in the HHOF.
No, I'm Russian and I litterally grown up watching him play. His death doesn't help anything.
ami = Bobby Clarke
No, I hate him. Hi's #2 on my hate list. (#1 is of cause claudef****** lemieux)
I'm not sure what part of my post made it sound like a joke.
I've never posted about the topic either.
I don't think there is any linear way to get into the field. I have a (relevant) science research background, but no contacts in hockey.
Talking to people in the right places would help a lot.
Another way to get around somebody from management is to take part in related conferences - analytics (you must've heard about MIT Sloan Sport Analytics - http://www.sloansportsconference.com/), sport management, etc.
My daughter is attempting a career in sports management and she went to this year Sports Managment Conference at NHL Draft (https://www.sportsma...reer-conference). This conference along has helped to get a few very good contacts.
oh, i wasn't talking about loss (who expected otherwise?!) and I haven't stopped rooting for them because they are loosing...
Hockey in Russia was once a sport, now it became politics.
I remember watching 1972 Canada - USSR Series. There were a lot of respect from both teams, there were a lot of not-understanding, even hatred, politics for sure, but respect nevertheless.
The way these boy behave, there have little respect to the opponent (especially US and Canada, but Czech and the rest of former-soviet block as well) and I'm not sure when they disrespect the opponent more - when they lose or when they win...
