    I have no doubt the team will simply hire a translator for him. Thats basically what they did when Dave King went over to coach them years ago.

    "Coolest thing about @CoachIronMike coaching in #KHL Magnitogorsk - The main sponsor/owner of the team is Metallurg - they manufacture iron."

    it just doesn't seem to make sense...Russians love hockey like we do, they can't have a shortage of KHL-caliber coaches can they? I'm sure may of the players have decent English but still

    A huge selling point for Keenan was that coaches can waterboard their players in Russia.
