Barys Nur-Sultan Team News
In just a couple of years, Barys went from being the hockey pride of Kazakhstan to an unstable KHL team struggling to even make the playoffs. The legendary days when their naturalized trio of Dawes–Bochenski–Boyd was dominating the league are long gone.
In the meantime, Barys haven´t been able to build a new identity and find proper replacements. After those three players left, the club hasn´t had a clear vision and a plan but still managed to achieve some minor success in the playoffs over the years.
This season it all went wrong from the start. Barys are still winless after four games which doesn´t come as a surprise. They replaced all of their imports this summer, failed to find a quality import goalie and also lost one of their key domestic pieces Roman Starchenko.
Traktor Chelyabinsk Team News
After years of mediocrity, Traktor started making some big moves in the transfer market and became a title contender overnight. As a result, last season was very fruitful as they managed to advance all the way to the Conference Finals after finishing as runners-up in the East.
However, this season could look entirely different. Almost all of their leading players left and the board couldn´t find adequate replacements in a very limited market. They tried to strengthen the squad with experienced KHL names like Anton Burdasov but their overall quality has dropped immensely.
Barys Nur-Sultan vs. Traktor Chelyabinsk Prediction
Traktor have lost a lot of key pieces but should still be able to make the playoffs. As expected, their biggest issue so far has been goaltending after their reliable netminder Roman Will returned home to Pardubice.
They are conceding well over 3 goals per game(last season they were conceding only 2.4 gpg) but they still have enough attacking quality to make the postseason. This Tuesday they will face another very unstable defensive team so we are backing the Asian Total Over.
