The article is part fact (things about Servette) and part a projection by Klaus Zaugg (which really doesn't mean anything).
Klaus Zaugg is the most well known hockey journalist in Switzerland. He's well connected in Swiss icehockey but often tries to sell his opinion as fact.

SCB and ZSC are mentioned simply because they are the two biggest teams in Switzerland with the most fans. If somebody of importance would have said the same things about SCB/ZSC as someone did about Servette then it would say in the article. It's all pure speculation.

ET is simply a pre-season tournament nobody cares about and not an all year thing like KHL (Which in Switzerland also few people care about btw.) . Why do you have to be pro one and against the other?

I don't see the need for a European tournament anyway. It has been tried before and failed (games in Bern only drew ~8'000 people in Hockey Champions-League). Nobody cares...

Lüthi is the CEO of SC Bern and not the GM btw.
