It's actually 2-2 so far
The Rangers have beaten Bern
Chicago destroyed Davos
Zurich won against the Blackhawks
And then (you might remember) the Rangers lost to Zug
I don't want to say the NLA is as good as the NHL (This statement would be pretty crazy). But the NLA, or the european leagues generally, seem to be seriously underrated on this boards. Scrub league? Seriously?
I know, such kind of statements do not represent the majority, but you can read them quite often.
