From our freelance field reporter Emily, also known in higher echelons of blogosphere as EmilyB:
Sport-Express has a good long article up about the planning for the Premiere Series.
The KHL has all sorts of great ideas, but my favorite has to be the plan for the Caps to play Moscow Dynamo, and for Ovi to switch teams halfway through. His Dynamo boss Misha Tyurkin has some interesting and perceptive comments in the interview near the bottom of the page.
I'm also kinda giggly over the offhand dismissal of the Rangers - off to Siberia with you, blueshirts! Omsk is your kind of town, trust us on this.
And I also learned we can all buy our plane tickets, as Medvedev announced at the Channel Cup that this is practically a fait accompli.
Talking about the freedom of movement or visas for Caps fans: Mikhail Tyurkin is also the head of Russian INS. :)
