16304 spectators now in Praha - the new attendance KHL record!
Here's Chara via NYT:
“It’s really nice to see so many fans show up, especially with someone like Ovi, who is always going to attract people,” said Chara, who played his second game with Lev Praha, an expansion franchise. “There’s not too many chances for people over here to see such great N.H.L. players.”I really like what Chara said afterwards:
Eight years ago, we pretty much agreed to what the owners wanted,” he said. “Pretty much the whole system and the whole negotiations were done for their advantage. And now they’re saying it’s not working and it’s not something that they can go on with. “They’re trying to take even more, and I don’t think that’s right, I don’t think that’s fair and certainly it’s not healthy for the gameBonus video: Ovechkin arrives to Bratislava
