The Eagle Has Landed

Interrupting this holiday silence with breaking news: Tomáš Klouček has latched on to a team for 2011-12, signing on with HC Lev Poprad. This is the new Slovakian entry in the KHL, and it's looking like a haven for Czechs and Slovaks who want KHL money while staying closer to home. Every player listed here is either Czech or Slovak, including long-ago Avalanche washout Václav Nedorost.

This is excellent news (though not as excellent as my hypothetical Klouček-to-Brno deal). HC Lev immediately becomes the shining star of the KHL. Everyone can get back to enjoying the holiday now.
