Euro Curve chronicles the latest international hockey news.

Writers Note: Euro Curve has been appearing sporadically as of late on www.illegalcurve.com, as I have been enjoying my vacation, which has consisted of me youtubing 1990's WWF home videos. Don't fret Euro Curve readers ( Kyle and a passionate fan from Iceland), a busy December schedule will keep my keyboard busy. With the upcoming 2008 World Junior Hockey Championships, the 2008 Spengler Cup, and rumblings of a Russian Super Super? League, please stay tuned to the hottest column in the blogosphere.

- Pierre Lebrun of the Globe and Mail writes about the IIHF/NHL transfer agreement, and the potential new league in Russia.

- Russia won the Channel One Cup on Sunday, part of the European Hockey tour, defeating the Czech Republic 5-1. Russia also won the Karjala Cup, the first tournament of the Euro hockey season. Russian won all three of their games, and only surrendered two goals, while scoring 11. Fedor Fedorov, Sergei's younger brother, scored twice in the final game.

For Illegal Curve, I'm Ezra Ginsburg.
