Great show in swiss playoffs

Above all tanks the poorly defense play.

Genf and Zug are spettacular and there were also some fights:

HERE HIGHLIGHTS

I dont think that Winterthur will play NLB hockey in the near future. They became "Amateur-Champion" last winter but couldnt make the step into the NLB because of financial issues. they've lost a few key players bc of retirement as well this year. remember almost nobody play professional hockey here, and when u become a dad (for instance) u just have other priorities.
Competition is tough here aswell, who's gonna go watch a NLB or 1. Liga game when he could also watch NLA in Zurich (twice), Rapperswil or Zug (both less than an hour drive as well) so i dont think that'll change soon. The Development Center is still nice tough, as it will give a few synergies for training etc.

The only way i could see them playing in the NLB is to host a lot more concerts at the Deutweg than now, and give all that income to the hockey club (which is not the owner of the arena). I think we residents wouldnt mind


and bc im already predicting:
HCD vs SCB in the final, HCD in 7.

Biel vs Lausanne, and we get a second team from the romandie next year in the A.

Winterthur is a difficult place for sport, especially getting the finances. We have NLB-soccer, NLA-Handball (men and women) and NLA-floorball (men and women). And all teams have difficulties to get enough money. FC Winterthur is completly dependent on their president which spends a lot of private money each year to secure their budget for the NLB. I don't think that it is possible to find the funds for NLB-hockey in Winterthur right now.

I am impressed !

I didn't know that Zurich was so dense in hockey teams !
ZSC, Flyers, Rappi and Zoug in less than 1 hour drive for a 2 million metro area ! and Winterthur's situation ... which talks in favour of gain in popularity !

Good for Swiss hockey .... in the west we are not their yet however it is good to point out that hockey clubs are mushroming and in winter, many communes (gemeinde; no idea in english !county ? ) are installing open air skating areas.
Also some new arenas are being built.

In Switzerland hockey is OK

i agree for the final Davos - SCB ... and to say Davos in 7 ? remainds me history with Genoni in the role of Hiller !!
But i predict with 100% confidence that Genoni will calm down ... and SCB in 6 !
Amen

Won't happen. Biel looked not too bad against Ambri, if they would begin to score once!

Honestly, i don't see Rapperswil winning 4 games against Biel.

Great news ... for you at least ! (HCD !)

i guess i will also save 2.5 CHF and watch Davos - Gotteron

++

SCB - Tigers ran out of suspens (IMHO and all to the discontentment of the greens )

Actually the 2 others are the most thrilling of all.
the Derby ZSC - Flyiers of course and Zoug-Geneva which is unsurprisingly thight !

i'm a little bit disapointed in our swiss tv-station. last year, the rsi, tsr and sf showed diffrent matches, it was pretty cool to zapped through these stations. this year, they show exectly the same match! is that a new rule by teleclub? today they have all davos-fribourg and all the stations will show at 5th march the berner-derby

I don't know about a new Teleclub rule, but usually public TVs show the series most likely to be over in 4 or 5 games first.

Good that Genoni is amazing ... he is taking in his reservoir of success. Which will be empty when they will face SCB in final.

+++

Flyers are still flying ... but rasemotte !

+++

The Tiger is gone, only remains the Medved ! (Medved in Russian = Bear)

Servette ... when Tobias is not 100% of stephan ... Servette is in trouble.
a nasty game word would be : Zug = train
le train passera 4 fois ... the train will pass 4 times.


(when SCB winns, and nobody is at home to hommer and brag ... i write on hfboards !)

that's right, but as much i can remember, tsr normally showed games where fribourg or genf plays, as long they still in the playoff (and today,it can be that fribourg will be out) and today they bring bern-langnau ... of course, somethimes they bring the same match on tv, but they show exectly the same matches, that's why I'm wonder ... or is it just cheaper for the the srg ssr when all channels show the same match?

I think it was part of the Teleclub contract that only one game was available for all three public channels, but it was back when they started Swisscom TV in 2006. I'm not sure if it's still the case (I know it's not for the Champions' league, but maybe they have a different contract for hockey).

a big minus to the Fribourg's management !
Good for them that no transfer arranged by Pelletier was stopped.

GSHC are always dangerous ... Mc Sorley is one hell of a magician
and to tell you the truth, i am a bit disapointed by Zug. I even felt they had a chance to become champions this year.

I have definitely share the same feeling ... medias tended to say that the Tigers played well, played their heart out ...
But to me, what the Tigers could was simply not enough against a Bern that plays OK (not more than OK !) ... if they play like this in the next round ... it will be difficult !
I hope Huras can pump some juice into them.

If Larry Huras can bring them to a good level ... they should make the title. If not ... unless a surprise takes place ... our friends Swissexpert and Peachy should be happy with HCD becoming champion another time.

+++

Bienne - Ambri : 2-2 good to see Bienne come back (i am from Bern !) ... on the other side Ambri can be impressive from time to time ... in all cases none of them should go down.

Lugano - Rapperswill : 4-0 happy for Lugano ... although i expected more from them at the beginning of the season. As per Rapperswill, they put together some better players ... but it seems to be unsuficient so far. Maybe another effort.

I definitely expect Rapperswill to face the LNB champion.

Rapperswil still has some some players like Manzato, Geyer, Blatter, Burkhalter or whoever they dress as a second import who are better than anything the NLB champion will throw at them.

I except them to stay in the top league, even though Lausanne are so streaky that you never how well they could do after solid playoffs.

Looking forward to the Zug v Geneva game tonight, should be good! Will be the last game I get to watch this series as I'm flying back to the UK on Thursday but I will be straight on the internet when I get to my parents' to check the score! Hopefully Zug can wrap it up by then but I get the feeling that this series is going the distance.

Holy *****, the Zug game was intense last night! So glad EVZ got the win, they deserved it.

Great to see Josh Holden back. He looked better as the game went on and his goal seemed to give him some of his old confidence back.
