If you wanna get money from hockey you can do it in NHL, AHL, (even now in lover N American leuages as well) then Russia, Sweden, Suisse and Czech Rep . Suisse and Germany (dont get so much) are booked for Canadians. If you wanna be in Suisse, move as kid and go trough junior leuge, or be best and get deal as Viktor Bäckman, Robin Frigren, Aaro Törmänen, Kaspars Daugavins, Ivars Punnenovs, Elvis Mezlikins, Roope Ranta, Philip Åhlström, Linus Klasen, Atte Karppinen and 2 big finish players what names I can not remember. Otherwise its just locals and Canadians.
Since in Hockley and basket now due playing in Russia is banned and players can get sanctions even be used as hostages there, its bad thiunk play there, its be hard to get a work in a hockey. Many good players might get little or even need play in tier 2.

Anyway Luleå recah a final and won firts game at home 4-1 against Färjestad Karlstad. Luleå won 1in 1996 against Frölunda Göteborg, was runner up in 1997 and 2013 against Skellefteå
Kovid-19 year they could win whole, but it was canceled , last year lose in quarters 4-3 in series against Skellefteå. Good Färjestad beat in semis SAIK. Luleå has problems in the head playing whit them, derby. Its all time even whit better players they always lose in the series. Luleå this year finished second in regulars series after Rögle only 3 points below.
They won over Örebro in quarter 4-1 in series, 4-1 Frölunda.
Now big final I saw game, 4-1 in a home, FBK did get goal whit one men sitting on penalty bench, but Luleå woke up and as angry monster fish swollowed them.
Today game 2, I will watch it its hear when Luleå can win, its year, if they take this game its be they wins.

What next if Luleå loose I believe many players will leave, lose apathete, might be relegation next year, but same bad season if they win, few might leave, but then again they might struggle next season to enter in play offs, but loosing this year be more painful.

Joel Lassinantti, Sami Lepistö, Konstantin Komarek, Julius Honka, Erik Gustafsson, Jack Connolly Linus Omark are on the books to other teams, best and key players.
Checks and finns won't stay probably, but can be replaced. You always can get good, cz and slovak players also Latvians from Dinamo Riga (since playing in KHL are banned from latvian state) , Often Luleå players are burn out after looisng final or super bad season .... will be next year to,

Players who still plays in Russia us banned from their national teams informed Finnish and Swedish hockey federations, CA 20 swedes still are there and some key players as Lars Johansson, Adam Reideborn, Klas Dhalbäck, Linus Hultén and 2 finnish stars Miko Lehtonen and Leo Komarov. They seems are banned for ever. Same goes to new players who sign contracts after invasion starts.

Soon WC in Helsinki and Tampere hehehhehe

Same time Luleå lost 2 away games, hard ones, its tide 2-2 in the series. Next game tomorrow and yesterdays game ended late due airplane delay.

But then again HV71 came back to SHL, (top level) 4-2 in series against Björklöven Umeå. Umeå is student town, hard get sponsors, loyal fans and fan base , get some money to buy 2-3 key players what can make wins in such games. Next year 4 teams Björklöven, MoDo Örnsköldsvik, AIK and Djurgården , maybe Mora and Timrå also will try get back to the top, but spot is one and it means win in a series aganst weakest SHL team!!! Thats to problem.
I liked old one 2 weakest and 4 strongest play home and away aganst all and 2 teams go up, it was better, now many play offs, outs and one spot, (but then agans SM Liiga in Finland is close if Mestis winner can be good, they play play in game) But still we can pick up historic teams, and well close leages is not good for smaller teams what tries bites from the pie.

Not happy there be game 7 in Luleå, damn seems Färjestad has not lose a single home game in this play offs, damn won last home game thanks top croud Luleå and goaly Joel Lassinantti, can they manage do it in last game? Its be hard. I am pessimist.

Same time Latvia and Finland said they can organize next WC what was taken away from Russia , Last years WC was in Latvia no spectators because Latvian goevment fucked all up and anti waxer culture in east Europe. Finland has this WC , so far non country has not said they want to organise it, so we will see. I hope Fin and Lv manage it, its be a bit something from stollen year.

So Luleå lost 7th game 3-4 in series against Färjestad, big disappointment even it was weeks ago still . Linus Omark left Luleå to Genève-Servette HC

Next world championships 2023 suppose to be plaid in St. Peterburg, since Russia and Belorussia is banned, Hungary-Slovenia wanted organize it, Hungary withdrawer after knew Russia will be banned(I dont get Hungary , well well, ) and Slovenia can not fix it alone. Latvia and Finland (last 2 hosts) will host it again.

This WC Austria, UK and France showed some skills and good games.
Sweden lost in OT to Canada in 1/4 even lost from 3-0 lead. Maybe once in 10 years Sweden miss semies.

Final was killer Finland 4-3 OT Canada. last 3 years finalist and Finland won 2 times and I can not recall when home nation won? 2 WC + 3 finals in row plus Olympic gold. Really good team, seems Finland reached whit youth and teaching what Sweden did 20 years ago. Can Finland win next one, yes, and how long this team will roll same way. I dont know. Well Finland wont go anywhere but can they be in semies next 10 years. Who knows.

Czech government tells NHL Russian players aren't welcome for Prague series

https://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/nhl-europe-series-russian-players-1.6591412#:~:text=The%20Czech%20Foreign%20Ministry%20told,impact%20of%20the%20attempted%20ban.

Sweden, Finland might follow, and I think Russian players should be banned or suspended in NHL, specially Ovechkin , but its business , event might be canceled, but then again NHL knows how to make money, they can not ignore Europe market so much, where they will se sell broadcast rights to Nicaragua or Tanzania? Cz, Fin and Swe , Ger, Sui are big market to NHL, and 40% best players there come from Europe. I agree whit this deasison ban Russian players to enter. Baltics and Poland has closed their borders even whit Schengen visa.

Latvian league might not be able to finish because many teams complain they can not pay ice rink electric prices what is instantly growing. 300 000 euro per day or more. Its more as few teams dugget.
HC Zemgale from Jelgava starts play in Finnish Mestis league (tier II)
I dont remember where but one swedish arena in south also complain and said they need shut down hmmmm.

Since Russia was banned next WC from Russia was moved to Finland/Latvia , last 2 years organizers. This might be no public band, while in suxer games in Finland ticket costs 70 Euros (game day) , Latvia from 150 , 300 (If Latvia plays) its extreme bad and expensive prices. Organizers might loose again.
2024 will be host in Prague and Ostrava, 2025 Stockholm(new ice area maybe) and Herning (Denmark) 2026 Suisse in Zurich and Friborg (corona year 2019 was canceled)

2027 hmmm Germany, Kazakhstan and Norway
Germany : cities TBA
Norway : Oslo and Trondheim I(new arena on planning)
Kazakhstan : Barys Arena in Astana and the 12,500-seat Almaty Arena in Almaty
For promotion Kaz might be interesting, might involve many Japanese, Korean and Chinese fans, Russians as well. I am not sure how long Russian airspace be close for international travels, I suppose to 2027 Voloda Pipman be dead , but situation. For fans and for me best is Germany, normal games hours, Norway si expenice, but I believe Kazakstan will get a place in name of evolment of hockey in a Asia. (OG in China might work to)
