If he runs out of topics and starts to write about KHL (where he probably doesn't know
), I wouldn't take his words as the gospel....But still, McSorley (a canadian) who already wanted to transfer Servette from Geneva to Lausanne, because of better infrastructure and more public resonance, could really be the first one in Switzerland to jump on the KHL train, instead of being crushed by it.
Luethi (GM of SC Bern) is also a very clever businessman, but I really have a hard time in seeing SCB out of NLA (they fill their tiny 16.000 seater even against Rapperswil, which is the least attractive team in Europe....)
If you know, are SCB/ZSC clubs which supports ECC/ET? Or are they play here because there is no other option of international competition? If there was another option (KHL), would they switch comptetitions (KHL instead of ET/ECC)?
Yes, I understand that NLA without SCB/ZSC is crazy idea.. and nobody can imagine it. Then there is Q - could anybody imagine SM-Liiga without Jokerit in early June 2013?
