    Martin Kariya

    Posted by japanstats on 2009 July 18日 Saturday

    Martin Kariya has apparently signed with Dinamo Riga (Latvia) of the KHL. Must’ve been quite an attractive offer to lure Martin away from the Swiss league where life is comfortable and his stats last season were 50GP 15G+43A=58P. Martin, of course, played half a season for the Nikko Ice Bucks in 2004-05 (15GP 6+12=18).

    2004-05 に半シーズン(15試合6得点12アシスト=18ポイント)だけ日光アイスバックスでプレーしたマーティン・カリヤが、KHL のディナモ・リガ(ラトビア)と契約したようです。マーティンは昨シーズンにスイスのトップリーグでプレーし、50試合で15得点43アシスト=58ポイントと良い成績を残した上、スイスリーグもヨーロッパのエリートリーグの一つですので、リガのオファーはかなり好条件だったのではないでしょうか。

    Dinamo Riga English Website and KHL Team Budgets

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 September 25日 Thursday

    Dinamo Riga (Latvia) of the upstart KHL (Kontinental Hockey League, mostly Russian league with ambitions to rival NHL in the future, or even now what with the Alexander Radulov signing) has an English website now! (And it looks great too, coming from a web-savvy Baltic nation maybe this shouldn’t be a surprise.) This is great news, as Riga and KHL info, stats, and news are now available in English.


    And KHL team budgets are now available and there is quite the gap between the richest and the poorest clubs. This seems to be total operating budgets that include player salaries, but nonetheless very interesting.

    1. AK Bars Kazan – $55 mill. 

    2. -4. Salvat Ulaev Ufa, SKA St. Petersburg, Avangard Omsk – $50 mill.

    5. Metallurg Magnitogorsk – $45 mill.

    6. Lokomotiv Yaroslavl – $40 mill.

    7. Atlant Moscow – $35 mill.

    8. -9. Dinamo Maskava, Sibir Novosibirsk – $25 mill.

    10. CSKA Moscow – $22 mill.

    11.-12. HK MVD Balashikha, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod – $20 mill.

    13. Spartak Moscow – $18 mill.

    14. Amur Khabarovsk – $17 mill.

    15. Dinamo Minsk – $16 mill.

    16.-17. Severstal Cherepovets, Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk- $15 mill.

    18.-19. Metallurg Novokuznetsk, Vityaz Chekhov – $13 mill.

    20. Lada Togliatti – $12 mill.

    21.-22. Dinamo Rīga, Traktor Chelyabinsk – $11 mill.

    23.-24. Barys Astana, Khimik Voskresensk – $10 mill.

    For a team with such a lot budget, Riga is off to an awesome start leading the Kharlamov Division right now with 5 wins, 2 OT/SO losses, and 2 losses in 9 games, good for 17 points.
