I still can't figure out if people in Biel speak French or Italian...Switzerland is a weird place.

They don't speak any language, they are neutral

They speak German and French since Biel is a city between the French and German speaking region. Switzerland has 4 offical languages (about 65% German speaking, 25% French, 9 % Italian and 1% an old roman language called "Rätoroman").

There you go

Orange = German
Green = French
Purple, which is described as "Italienische Schweiz" = Italian
Other Purple = Romansh

I didn't know that. This is one of the more educational threads on HFBoards.

Seguin had no points in his last two games and didn't impress at all. Must be the Swiss girls...

You drive a hard bargain, but I guess you can have Marchand.

Marchand and Seguin together... In Switzerland.

The first sentence is enough, the country would be gone by the time the lockout ends.

@NaokoFunayama: Biel highlights. Classic Micflikier snipe. Also sweet pass from Seguin to Micflikier for GWG. In grey jerseys: http://t.co/mZHT9slK

Excellent work by Seguin to assist on the game winner, looks like that balance training is paying off

I apologize if this link doesn't work, I copied it via noako's twitter and my phone

Seguin had a great solo in yesterday's game, but too many of his shots are not on goal. 1 goal in 6 games is not really what you would expect from Seguin.

Maybe Nicklas Bäckström will sign in Biel, that would help him i think.

Is his coach making him play to much defensive?
