    Good on you for starting Miki. I'll try and assist you if and when I can during the season.

    If you need them, you can use the rosters I've already prepared at my site. Sport Club and HC Csíkszereda ready as can be atm (pending any last hour transfers), Brasov and CSS-SC II in the works.

    Thank you, Stefan, I wanted to copy-paste a lot of things from your works (site and last season on this forum).

    I want to wait until the end of the week because it seems that some players can change teams in the last minute (some HC players at Brasov, Steaua players at Galati - as they played yesterday).

    If someone can get the team list to me via PM (with the hometown for the clubs participating) in the league, I'll try to slap together a map for it. I've got a few others done thus far.

    Couldn't they have organised the competition in such a way such that Progym could have played at home? It seems faintly ridiculous that half the cup should take place in Gheorgheni, yet without Progym

    Adhoc, agreed with you, two teams travelling with bus away from their suporters: HC Csikszereda plays in Gheorgheni, Progym in M. Ciuc...

    Probably the teams were putted in groups by the last season standings, so the 4th placed Progym gets Sportclub, the holders and the champions.

    Maybe if Sportclub would travel to Gheorgheni, only one team would be forced to play away :)

    Day 3, the deciding matches, some usual results at first sight, but could have been the opposit results too:

    Steaua - HC Csikszereda 3-2 (1-1,1-1,1-0)
    03:08 1-0 Krechac (Sadiy) +1
    12:27 1-1 Lorincz (Peter)
    29:07 2-1 Geru (Georgescu)
    37:50 2-2 Kovac +1
    42:46 Krechac (Geru) +1

    Sportclub - Progym 3-2 (1-1,2-0,0-1)
    04:38 1-0 Poznik (Filip,Misal)
    11:17 1-1 Csiki (Konyar) +1
    22:03 2-1 Ordzovensky (Adorjan)
    31:14 3-1 Moldovan (Adorjan, Hozo)
    39:39 Goga (Progym) missed PS
    44:47 3-2 Gergely (Farkas)

    The other two resuls:
    Sportclub II CSS - Sportul Studentesc 6-3 (!)
    Brasov fenestela 68 - Galati 4-0 (!)

    Another question miki. (Well, actually it's a few questions)
    1. It seems farcical to have Sportclub and Sportclub II playing in the same division of the league . Why have they been allowed to do this? Are there any rules in place to ensure that Sportclub don't abuse this?
    2. How are they going to schedule ice time at the Vakar Lajos? As I understand it there are three teams playing Romanian league games there (Sportclub, HC Csikszereda, and SC II) and two teams playing Hungarian league games there (Sportclub and HC Csikszereda), that sounds like more games than there are days in the winter. Any idea how they'll fit it all in? Double headers?

    Thanks for the help

    1. If you take the pros and cons of having three teams in the city, the pros have more weight. The town has a good youth base and most of this players were lost when only Sportclub existed. When they reached the senior playing age, they couldn't fit in the team (veterans and foreigners were better then them at that time). When HC Csikszereda was formed, they had to pick up the players fom all over: they left not only the city but the sport too. If you look at HC Csikszereda, they are the 20-21 years old generation. Now a new generation reached the 17-18 years limit and they had no team to play for: in Romania the youth and junior championship is a big joke - when even it is organized.

    So they form a new team, Sportclub II (Sportclub wants to have their backs safe, not to give their young talents for nothing), completed with players who rarely gets ice time in the big team (like Szocs Elod, Kanya, etc).

    Now the federation decided that player movings between the two group of teams (big 4 and little 4) is alowed all season. Fifth line of Sportclub can play for Sportclub II and fifth line of HC in Brasov's team (this team plays in Carta, the federation's president own dream and project).

    Sportclub II is too weak to be a problem for the bigger clubs, so no one is bothered by its existens. I say - as the citisen of the town - is a good thing that all the young players get their time to develop in better players during their time in Sportclub II or Brasov.

    2. Vákár Lajos arena is a very used institute during the ice season. We have not only the romanian and hungarian championship but a powerful amateur championship too. And ice figure skating and short track... Trainings not only for the professionals, but for childrens (from 4-6 years old to 17-18) too. I guess that they will manage to do things right. I hope that we don't have other schedule problem - as we had last season when SC played in Borsodi Liga and HC with Steaua in the National League. That "scandal" was an artificial one, everybody knows that it's a rivalty between the two teams (an between their HQ).

    Usual suspects...

    Tomorrow the usual final - but not without problems for the arch rivals, Sportclub and Steaua.

    In the first semifinal HC Csikszereda had 3-1 with 10 minutes before the final whistle. Young and restless, they didn't succeed to stick on the result. Sportclub scored 3 goals in 5-6 minutes and won...

    In the second Progym shocked the vice-champions taking the lead with 2-0. Steaua made it equal before the last period. In the third period Progym took again the lead but only in a few minutes the victory slipped away: two goals for Steaua. The final result 6-3, Steaua scoring 4 goals in this period.

    SportClub – HC Csikszereda 4-3 (1-1, 0-2, 3-0)
    Goals:
    SC: Peter Filip, Sandor Szilard, Milan Carsky, Szabolcs Papp
    HC: Petres Tivadar (2), Kristian Kovac

    Steaua – Progym 6-3 (1-2, 1-0, 4-1)
    Goals
    Steaua: Mihai Georgescu, Ioan Timaru, Andrei Butochnov, Razvan Lupascu, Catalin Geru, Tibor Basilidesz
    Progym: Csaba Farkas, Attila Gergely, Attila Goga.

    HC Csikszereda changed his head-coach: Rohacik (who was the U20 NT coach too) left, the new coach is Mercel Ozimak. The 34 years old coach from Nitra changes Rohacik because "we said that we will have only better coaches as Mikula was" declared the president of the club. So Mikula, last season's head coach is the standard of the team.

    Scandal in the Federation too, ProSport, the only national sportpaper that write something about romanian hockey published an interview with Kurko, the president of the FRHG and his words shocked. The Flamaropol arena doesn't have ice because the malfunction of the compressors, and the president said that is not his problem and he's not care where will be trained the junior teams. He invited them to Miercurea Ciuc or Gheorgheni to play on ice. If he said so realy, it's sad and outrageous. Asked about the championship, that is no schedule at all after the league was completed by two teams (the old 6 plays with the old schedule, the 2 new teams tries to arrange his games directly with the others, when they are in the mood and they have time for it) he invited Steaua and Progym to apply for the Hungarian Championship "if they want performance".

    Today a press conference, it seems that Kurkó wants to deny this interview. And with a day after this was published, the ice begin to show on Flamaropol... As he said, he payed from his firm money to have the compressors repaired.

    Yesterday's press conference once again that romanian hockey is more circus than skating, passing or shooting. The president (Kurkó) and the vice-president (Cârlan) doesn't let each other to talk, when one of them tried to explain something, the other shout "liar, liar!" They invited each other to resign. Nice show. Nobody understanded something from this "press conference". Once again the old management is to blame for everything (Pană was present too), if some money arrived to the federation, Kurkó is the man who obtained it (Pana said that he asked for money too, but Kurko had more succes because he talks the same language that the ministry of development, Borbely Laszlo. Politics again).

    So, we don't have ice in Bucharest, Kurko promises that monday it will be. We will see.

    Standings updated above.

    Miniscule chance for SCM Brasov to catch and pass Progym Gheorgheni for the 4th place. If Brasov wins their 3 remaining games they will indeed, but it's easier said then done.

    SCM Braşov - Steaua Bucureşti
    SCM Braşov - SC Miercurea Ciuc
    SCM Braşov - SC Miercurea Ciuc

    Progym Gheorgheni - CSS-SC II M. Ciuc
    Progym Gheorgheni - CSS-SC II M. Ciuc

    In the battle for supremacy HC Csíkszereda has 9-3 (points) vs Steaua, whilst Steaua has an impressing 12-0 vs their archrival SC Miercurea Ciuc. HC and SC have yet to meet (21-22/12) and a not set return-double. Precarious situation for the ruling champions as they need to come out with a positive point distribution from those 4 encounters in order not to slip behind too much. Points vs the other qualifying teams will be kept for the second part of the regular championship.

    Return legs of the todays Sport Club - Steaua (7-2) and Progym - HC (3-5) tomorrow.

    Last round (17-18/2) Steaua - HC, Progym - Sport Club

    The league is damnsome even, apart from the cut-off Progym, and a real battle for the two top positions (final playoff) is ongoing. Had it not been for HC's slip of one point vs Progym earlier (OT win) all 3 teams had been on the exact same points now. 3rd team in the final standings will have to settle for bronze playoff vs Progym.

    In the 5-8 League, SCM Braşov cruises to an effortless top position, whilst Dunărea will take the 6th spot (these two will then meet in a 5th place playoff). Sportul alone at 7th and CSS-SC II parked at the bottom of the league system (meets in 7th place playoff).

    I don't remember when has happened last time that Steaua (or its predecessors) finished worse than 2nd, probably in the 50's...

    Correct, 1952 to be exact, CCA (Steaua's name pre-1963) finished third behind Avântul Miercurea Ciuc (predecessor to Sport Club) and Spartak Târgu Mureş. Since then Steaua was either first or second up until now. Considering that Steaua (CCA) hockey section was founded 1951 it is a pretty impressive record.

    And now CSA Steaua Bucuresti, the mother club of the hockey team considers to shut down the hockey section... Boroi, the president of Steaua said that Marius Gliga (the head coach) is the main to blame because he failed to build a competitive team.

    While the two, Sportclub and HC have 80-100 official matches per season, Steaua remained at the romanian hockey level, jubilating after the regular season that they break a record with their 300 goals... The difference between Steaua and the finalists is obvious, they were behind phisically and tactically as well.

    It will be interresting todays Steaua - HC encounter, to see how the home team can play after the public comments of their staff.

    I can't believe that they will shut down the senior section, they used this lines in the past too, to "rise the moral" of their players.

    Maybe they should apply to join the Hungarian league too, give themselves a little more competition to raise the level of hteir club just like SC and HC did this season.

    That kind of morale boosting for veterans looking forward to their pension ? I don't think so.

    And Steigs, there were talks of making a united league with teams from Romania-Hungary, but nothing got done. Steaua going to play against UTE and DAB also would be a solution, as long as they get accepted in the OB I. Travel shouldn't be a problem (two airports in/near Bucharest and there are talks of building a third one).

    Yeah... I would like to see a combined league (like the Panonian League maybe), where each country could still have its short championship tournament/league on the side.
    The second-tier though is what would make me think twice. Progym and the lower clubs would get manhandled...
    .Maybe set up some sort of regional/unbalanced scedule in the second-tier for teams like Progym, the lower Romanian clubs, Miskolc and the lower Hungarian clubs who would want to participate, and go from there?
    Logistically it could be difficult but it seems like something that could really help Romanian hockey overall, because we've seen this season that the Hungarian league is pretty stable and successful

    Don't be so hard on Progym there, they only have 5 forgein players (info), HC Csikszereda and SC Miercurea Ciuc have ~9, and the quality of those 5 players certainly is not that good. With 4 more players they could have one more forgein players line do the work. And if they had any good forgein players things would be different. By the way, last night they beat SC after they were 4-1 down, won that one in OT, indeed a not important game for SC, as they already knew they had home ice advantage (if any since all games will be played at the same rink and HC doesn't really have an important fan base yet).

    Side-league I don't think cuts it anymore. Look at Alba-Volan concentrating everything in Austria, at Acroni Jesenice concentrating everything there also, it would seem that teams care more about playing higher quality hockey than winning a national championship.

    Better thing would be to have a financially sound league where teams can travel distances and not complain about costs.

    Anyway, Steaua's main commander (military club) said he wants to disband the senior team of Steaua since he can't see any future in it, but he wants to keep the juniors. Their general manager (Carlan) already got fired yesterday. It might be the end of CSA Steaua's senior hockey division and not even a sound beating of Progym won't matter in the eyes of the big chiefs, who say the hockey club is one of the most expensive sections and they get nothing back.

    Instead of accepting 3rd-4th place as a wake-up call, Steaua seems to make a burial of it. When those juniors will turn 18 they'll just go to school and thats it, no U20 programs here, and not many 18 year old players get signed by the senior teams.

    So it might be that there is no need for a united league after all, since SC and HC are already playing there and Steaua is certainly not going to have the money they had this season (if they'd still exist when the season starts).

    The only thing that remains to be seen this season is how SC and HC re-arrange the Romanian championship final to accomodate their OB I play-off games. (They have games on the 27th and 28th in the 1/4 of Hungarian league)

    .Maybe set up some sort of regional/unbalanced scedule in the second-tier for teams like Progym, the lower Romanian clubs, Miskolc and the lower Hungarian clubs who would want to participate, and go from there?
    Logistically it could be difficult but it seems like something that could really help Romanian hockey overall, because we've seen this season that the Hungarian league is pretty stable and successful
    I don't think that we have to put Miskolc one level below to let Steaua in. Hungarian League should help to develop Hungarian hockey and not Steaua. BTW, Miskolc is not as bad as their results might suggest it. Their problem is that they are semi-amateurs at the moment, but as soon as they manage to find some more sponsors they will rapidly close to the better teams. Their improvement in the last two seasons (they have an indoor rink since april 2006 only) is obvious. Now they have two rinks (one indoor and one outdoor) and have more than 200 players in different age groups. So priority to Hungarian teams and if somebody wants to join then welcome.

    While the two, Sportclub and HC have 80-100 official matches per season, Steaua remained at the romanian hockey level, jubilating after the regular season that they break a record with their 300 goals... The difference between Steaua and the finalists is obvious, they were behind phisically and tactically as well.

    It will be interresting todays Steaua - HC encounter, to see how the home team can play after the public comments of their staff.

    I can't believe that they will shut down the senior section, they used this lines in the past too, to "rise the moral" of their players.
    That would be very sad. I hope this is only their first reaction and later they will change their opinion: they have to find a way to improve themselves rather than close their senior hockey team.

    Steaua Bucuresti is the Defence Ministry's team (army), a well known system in the eastern-europe countries (Honved in Hungary, TSKA in Bulgaria or Russia). They had/have a lot of sections, atletism, handball, rugby and so on. Only the football club, Steaua Bucuresti is no longer in this system, because they didn't want to support financially the other sections. They left the structure, leaving the debts behind for the mother club.

    In particulary HC Steaua Bucuresti, the hockey club is the most expensive section of the club. But until now they brought honor and championship titles for the club, so they were kept. The costs are higher and the future is unsecure because they missed one thing: to secure the youth base. In the actual roster of Steaua only one (1!) player is from Bucharest (Georgescu, I think, maybe Flueras two), the rest are all from other centers: Harghita Conty (Basilidesz brothers, Catrinoi, Timaru, Kari, Kostandi, Molnar for ex), Galati (Geru, Nicolescu, Lupascu...) or foreigners. Because they don't have any source for new players, they must give up the hopes to match with Sportclub and Csikszereda in the following years.

    If HC Steaua didn't manage to change, to get some privat suport (sponsors, investors), even if they will be kept for the next season, allways will be in danger to be dissolved.

    hchoki.ro not always correct.
    If you check the game sheet there the last SC is scored 60:32 so its an OT winner.

    Sport Club Miercurea Ciuc - HC Csíkszereda 4-3 (0-2, 2-0, 1-1, 1-0)

    Any news from Steaua? Do they still think that they will not have any senior team next year?

    Latest comment Steaua head coach made was about Tibor Basilidesz having to do some shoulder surgery (injured) so that he can make next season without any injury issues. So maybe things were re-thought. Anyway probably nothing will get decided untill after the championship gets finished.

    Regarding Steaua: Cristian Carlan, the "commandant" of the Hockey Section anounced to the press that he was dismissed by Boroi, the "commandant" of the mother club after the team failed to make it to the finals. Very important players (Timaru and Lupascu) said that they will end their playing carrier, they even wanted to boicott the final for the 3rd place.

    So Boroi come forward and said to the press: "I never dismisssed officialy Carlan". The future of the team will be evaluated after the end of this season.

    Even if they will remain, it will be very hard for them to match the two finalists, SC and HC in the next season. If the HQ of the club didn't undersand that they need time to rebuild the team to be in the fight for the championship, every year they will be dissapointed and Steaua hockey section will be in big danger.

    Sportclub is the champion for the second time in a row after 4 consecutive victories over their local rival, HC Csíkszereda: 5-3, 4-2, 4-3 (OT) and 3-0.

    HC Csikszereda remains with a performance to be in the final of two championships, Hungary and Romania. They lost all their 8 mathces in the finals, but it's a huge result to be there anyway.
