Ex-tough guy worries about Severstal fans?!  Maybe it would be better for Yudin to help Razin financially?

As you know, the club from the Vologda region does not reach the lower limit of the KHL salary ceiling of more than 40 million rubles. Nevertheless, the “steelworkers” with all the rich in the league fight in the blood and are often knocked out. Yesterday, the oligarchs from St. Petersburg miraculously escaped shame.

In the cradle of the revolution, the guests opened the scoring already in the 4th minute. The monstrously packaged SKA suffered with the rogues from the banks of the Sheksna until the middle of the third period, when, with titanic efforts, it restored the balance – 1:1. Overtime skated dry. Everything was decided in a shootout. The Cherepovites led 1:0 until the last attempt of the army team. They, as always, were rescued by newcomer Khairullin, whom SKA bought in the off-season from Neftekhimik for one and a half million dollars (90 million rubles). Marat made two free throws in a row. Instead of the first defeat in the championship, the hosts achieved the eighth victory in a row.

It should be noted that at the same time, Severstal entered the Ice field without a quartet of leading players – the Swedish defender Press, forwards Vovchenko (the team’s highest paid outfield player), Petunin and Pilipenko. After the game, Razin explained everything:

– Why did you leave the three best forwards in reserve? We wanted them to relax. This is probably what happened. Point taken, a well-deserved point. The game was fighting, happiness was nearby, but Marat Khairullin… No wonder he was bought for that kind of money.

Today we proved that even without our highly paid guys, we are also a force. The league should reconsider this rule (on the lower limit of salaries. – Approx. ed.). I will be fined again, but I think if we show a result, if we get into the playoffs, regardless of the floor or the ceiling, then we can make some concessions. Even more so at the present time.

We assumed that we would have a small majority. Therefore, the first brigade of the majority was not announced. We have five games in a row every other day. And they give two points for SKA, for CSKA, for any other team. Distribute the power like this. Sacrificed most…

Clear comprehensive commentary. But no: Yudin, who was close to the SKA, apparently, did not allow his aggravated civic position to remain silent. You’ll never guess who he suddenly decided to stand up for! For the fans? And this despite the fact that the whole country – I allow myself such a bold assumption! – now one way or another worries about the poor, but proud and extremely pretty Severstal.

This season the Cherepovites have already slammed the moneybags from Traktor, Magnitogorsk, CSKA, Dynamo Minsk, and SKA, as we have recorded above, miraculously crawled away to a draw.

– I respect Razin, but he should now concentrate on the game and work, – the 2002 vice-champion of the world generously distributes free advice. – He says in every phrase how poor Severstal is, and so on. But this is what everyone knows. Or is he making excuses? Severstal can play more open hockey like many other teams. In general, Razin needs to stop being ashamed. And then the fans at some point it may get bored. Not to mention leadership.

I have one wishful question.

Did the management of Severstal order Yudin to examine the professional and human qualities of his head coach?

Or maybe Alexander, who is now a coach, should take on some distressed team himself and show everyone, including Andrey Razin, how to cook soup from an ax and not be embarrassed at the same time? Personally, I’d love to take a look. Moreover, Yudin has long established himself as a first-class speaker. There is only a little left: to back up the words with deeds. As Razin does this day after day.

However, Andrei Vladimirovich has enough time to take part in a verbal duel. Here is how he answered in the telegram channel to an uninvited adviser and fighter for the rights of fans:

– Sasha, I respect you too! Your violin playing after every goal scored in the days when you were a hockey player is unforgettable!

Am I shy? You take it wrong. I’m good with finances! Who else among the coaches can so easily throw 300 thousand into nowhere?

The Severstal coach is referring to the fine from the KHL issued to him for criticizing referees after the match with Avtomobilist in early September.
