It's not like we are stacked with skill on the wing to be selling off skill players for draft picks.
Plus for all we know we have a Galchenyuk and Barkov future coming up.
But on topic, anyone know anything about this team? I like their logo.
I'm a fan of Fribourg, so I can tell you what you want about the team. Right now, we are third on the standing. First team on the standing is Genève (Weber and Couture) and second are Zurich (Dustin Brown). 4th best defense and attack. Our best scorer are Christian Dubé (7 goals, 11 assist in 19 games) and Simon Gamache (5 goals 12 assist in 17 games). We are in the first swiss league since 1980, but we were never swiss champion. The club is also well known in Europe because we got Slava Bykov (old trainer of the Russian national team, 5 times world champion, 2 times Olympic champion) and Andrei Komutov (trainer in the KHL, world champion and Olympic champion one time).
I'll keep you updated on how Desharnais does, maybe with some highliths video too. If the lock-out last until January, you may be able to watch some game in Canada, since we are competing in the Spengler Cup this year and i do believe it's broadcast in Canada.
