Today is the first big game day in the NHL and one of the most interesting matches of the day is meeting the potential favorites of the West and the East. Dynamo decently stronger in the offseason and they are waiting for the result. Let’s see how they will be able to start in the new season.
- Dinamo Moscow
- Salavat Yulaev
- The coefficients and forecast
Moscow Dynamo last season finished outside the borders of the playoffs. Had a lot of problems at the very beginning of the season, a huge funding problems and the result was something amazing.
But before the new season of optimism in the camp of “Dynamo” to order more. Returned to the post of General Manager Valery Pavlinovich Shantsev.
It was high-quality transfers.
- defender Andrei Mironov (back from North America),
- defender Miika Koivisto (“Carpet” Finland),
- forward Patrick Zakrisson (“Siberia”),
- forward Vadim Shipachev (SKA),
- forward Miks Indrasis (Dinamo Riga),
- forward Maxim Afinogenov (“Vityaz”),
- forward Dmitry Kagarlitsky (Severstal).
Mironov is a pupil of “Dynamo”. His striking game in the “Dynamo” and attracted at the time, the attention of NHL scouts. To gain a foothold in the strongest League in the world he has failed. Last season, he only played 10 games for Colorado, mostly playing in the AHL.
Other players in the above list were leaders of their clubs. All they are perfectly familiar to fans who are watching the CHL, with the exception of Miika Koivisto. Is a Finnish hockey player in this season debuts in the KHL. He may be one of the main discoveries of the new season of the KHL.
In his face, the Dynamo acquired the versatile defender, who can be useful when the drawing of majority, may help the attack (last season in the “Carpeta” he scored 39 points performance in 55 games). At the world championship for his game could be seen in the national team of Finland.
Do not forget that you have saved in the Dynamo Justin Boyd. So in this season Moscow “Dynamo” could compete for top 4 in the West.
Great expectations this season and their first home match of the season will be a strong support.
The final intensive preparations for the season for “Dynamo” became the Cup of the Mayor on which team showed the following results:
Dynamo Moscow — Spartak Moscow — 2:3
“Dynamo” Moscow “Vityaz” — 4:3
Dynamo Moscow — CSKA Moscow — 4:1
In the match against “Spartak” injured Andrei Mironov and will miss roughly 7 weeks. Another defender Dmitry Vishnevsky in early August, had surgery on the heart and could be back in action until October.
Thus, in the line of defense the Dynamo formed a staff shortage. Will have to use the youth to close these “holes” in the composition.
In Ufa failed Finnish experiment last season. Failed Erkki Westerlund to build a team able to achieve the result. But sorry, Westerlund a specialist class and not once in his coaching career proved it with the national team of Finland.
Complete failure of speech “Salavat” called, of course, impossible. Still, the quarterfinals of the Gagarin Cup is not such a bad result, but the team certainly expected more.
In the upcoming season “Salavat Yulaev” under the guidance of the young coach Nicholas Sulygina. Last season he was the assistant Westerlund and perhaps a certain coaching experience received. Prior to that, he worked as an assistant coach in the MHL, “Compare” and coach of the youth team “Salavat Yulaev”.
In the offseason, many transfers were made. All say it makes no sense. Allocate more or less important.
- goalie Ben Scrivens,
- defenseman Oskars Bartulis,
- defenseman Maxim Goncharov,
- defender Alexander Loginov,
- forward Enver Lisin,
- forward Ilya Zubov.
- goalie Juha Metsola (“Cupid”),
- defender Serhiy Tereshchenko (“the Metallurgist” Magnitogorsk),
- defender Artem Sergeev (CSKA),
- forward Vyacheslav Osnovin (“Siberia”),
- forward Vladimir Zharkov (CSKA),
- forward Dmitry Kugryshev (“vanguard”),
- forward Pyotr Khokhryakov (“vanguard”).
Weaker Ufa did not, that’s for sure. Especially noteworthy is the signing Metsola and Osnovin.
With the goalkeepers and defense in General in “Salavat” has always been a problem. With Juha metsola a Ufa at the gate this trend may change slightly.
Were in the team last season’s leaders: Linus omark are, Teemu Hartikainen, Joonas Kemppainen, Philip Larsen.
Very decent of “Salavat” team, they are able to compete in the East of “AK Bars”. The only thing is a concern to the coach. But look at how Nikolai Zalygin to cope with this challenge.
In the pre-season “Salavat” looked good. Gave a series of 6 wins in a row before the start of the KHL season.
“Salavat Yulaev” — “Avant-Garde” — 3:2
“Salavat Yulaev” — “Tractor” — 5:1
“Salavat Yulaev” — “Tractor” — 4:3
“Salavat Yulaev” — “Motorist” — 3:2
“Salavat Yulaev” — “The Petrochemist” — 4:3
“Salavat Yulaev” — “Barys” — 4:0

It should be noted that skips Ufa is still a lot, despite good results.
The coefficients and forecast
Here’s what the line offers Sportsbook Betsiti for this match.
“Dinamo” is in the line a small favorite due to home court. But guests staying in the game plan, the composition in no way inferior to the Dynamo. Do not forget about the problems in the defense line at the “Dinamo”. But the attacking lines of both teams look great, at least by name. The first games of the season is always difficult to predict, but this fight can be seen high performance.
