The Russian Way

Very cool Hockey News….

from Barry Smith at the Hockey News,

Just checking in to give you a better idea of the Russian Super League.

We have now played every team in the league. One thing that really sticks out there is quite a big disparity between the size of the cities and the payrolls.

For example, Omsk has a payroll of $50 million (US), which is the highest payroll in the league. The teams are financed by large corporations or municipality funding. There is no possible way a team here can break even based on ticket sales, concessions and parking.
