I don't really know.... In an interview Bührer said, that this was just an exhibition game and everybody should get his chance....

Before he got pulled Bührer missed an opportunity to give Bern an extra attacker for several seconds when a penalty was called... Maybe van Boxmeer got angry at Bührer (that's my thought, because this would not be the 1st time...)...

But Jonas Müller didn't play badly and I think it would have made a difference.... The Rangers were stronger in every aspect of the game! Was a nice Game to watch though....

Yeah, surprisingly good team play for an international exhibition, especially on the power play, and despite several players missing.

PLAYOFF TIME


I am an SCB fan and believe that SCB will go to final and ... WIN !

any more sofisticated opinions ?

In fact i doubt they will win, I never liked van boxmer. i felt that he is a talent castrator. He succeeded in AHL ... that's all. And in AHL you have no talents. (or few). He replicates the model in SCB. Result is a good team in unimportant games.

ZCS showed they can play well in determined games. Kloten is also able to play pretty well. And Lugano would be the outsider.

If ZSC can play like in the CHL, my money is on them. Bern looks good but I'm not sold on them after last year's disaster, Kloten is on a cold streak right now and I wouldn't be surprised if they are out in the first round. Lugano can finally field a good defense with Fransson and Hirschi back, but given their current form I don't think they stand a chance (they won't stand one as long as they play that overrated goalie anyway). Davos will be dangerous as they always are, as well as Geneva.

where was I, you are fully right ... Davos is also a serious pretender ... always dangerous. Geneva ... this year ... i don't know. While i agree that they can play pretty well in important moments/games (they are good in winning in overtime !), this year they are a bit weaker (IMHO) !

So, who watched the first playoffs games ?

I watched the Davos-Lugano game. Nice high tempo game with a strong defensive preformance by both teams. Deserved win by Lugano, who was a whole other team that the one that played so poorly late in the regular season.

Bern won ... mainly due to penalties !!

Good start for the playoffs.

Fribourg is again creating havoc in the projections.
(as an SCB fan, i hate and love Fribourg !!)

I confess i didn't watch ! mea culpa non lo fare piu!

I watched SCB-Zoug and ... well i am poud to be an SCB fan, you should have seen the pressure Bern put on Zoug's goal, at 3 minutes before the end playing in inferiority 4vs5 !! impressive. I never saw this. You would have believed that Bern was with one player more, not one player less !! astounding. SCB fan forever. Yet ... they lost ! Seriously, and not because i am an SCB ... again Bern could have won but because of circumstances, unluck, and other reasons ... they lost ...i remain confident in them!!

congrats to Fribourg who keeps mainaining an air of surprise. Congrats to Kloten !! and special congrats to Lugano and Davos. Thrilling games.

I think that the big surprise is Fribourg ... yet Fribourg has always been a dangerous team. and the beautifull encounter with thrill and tension is Lugano-Davos.

Wow, the third game between Lugano and Davos was entertaining! Especially the last 3 minutes of the third period.

Anyone left who thinks Servette or the Lions are able to make a comeback?

I wouldn't rule out that possibility considering that we've had teams coming back from 3-0 deficits for the last three seasons. ZSC would be my bet to do it, but they would need to solve Caron to achieve a comeback. Servette doesn't look focussed enough to me, they need to stop blaming the ref, put an end to all those off ice distractions and start thinking more about playing.

Good start for both Kloten and Fribourg, Geneve had a really bad run and the ZSC i think have paid for the mental cost of the CHL. They were tired.

Bern is not surprising, always a wonderful team in the RS, but in the PO they have some troubles like a season ago. And Zug is coming from an amazing run from 10th to 8th place.

Davos and Lugano is a good matchup, but Lugano rely to many of his offensive plays on Thoresen- Brady Murray and Nummelin, Robitaille is playing a little better than in the RS but he's not making any difference. 3 goal in 54 games
Davos is a good 5 on 5 team, good PP, but has not so many consistency. I think at the moment Kloten and Bern are still my favourite to win.

Tonight game 5!

FORZA LUGANO!!

Lugano still looks way better right now than during the regular season. You're right that most of the offense come from the Thoresen-Sannitz-Murray line, but with everyone working hard, anyone can score a timely goal as proved by T. Vauclair and Conne on saturday. Defense is still Lugano's main problem, with a goalie you can't count on, you can't afford to make as many mistakes as they've done so far. Though with both Nummelin and Fransson in the line up and Helbing finally looking like a hockey player, things look better now than in the regular season.

I have the sad task to announce you ... that ...
SCB has been eliminated (again !) in quarter of finals after having won the regular season (again !).

suggestion :
important :
change Van Boxmer ...
to do eventually :
some canadians in this team could also be changed !
hire bigger/stronger players and good swiss players and next year SCB will be champion ... .

now i will start mourning

Whatever
SCB forever ... unconditionnaly

Looks like the Van Boxmeer era is comming to an end, I can't imagine him beeing back next season. Who would have predicted that the top two seeds would be out in the first round ?

And what a serie between Lugano and Davos, 5th OT in 6 game (8 in 10 if regular season games are included). And after Helbling, Aebischer finally started playing playoffs hockey

torero (or anyone), any info about Jobin ?

Regarding Jobin ... all seems to be fine as commented in the following article :

http://www.rfj.ch/rfj/Actualite/Spor...vid-Jobin.html

Lugano is impressive ! the most interesting 1/4 final. War time !

Finally Van Boxmeer has been resigned !!
Of course nothing personal ... but i always felt that he doesn't allow for good players to play thier games. I felt that he is a bit like Mc Sorley ... (well maybe Mc Sorley has other skills than the one required by his position) ... he would be a good coach for a 2nd half team with little money. imposing a system and not wanting to let the stars express talent !! The difference is that he plays in Switzerland, where salaries aren't capped and SCB is the wealthiest team. So he better gets the best players and lets them express their personality on ice.
anyway ... he left ! and SCB is eliminated.

SCB Fan forever ...even during bad years!

Well, some star players like Plüss or Bärtschi had no problem expressing their talent, and some others like Gamache or Bordeleau simply played below expectations, nothing to do with the system.

What's really strange is that this team looks well built : star players that work hard like Rüthemann, some gritty guys like Trevor Meier or Ziegler (although he is no longer the player he was 4 or 5 years ago), good youngsters, a solid goalie. No real weaknesses here.
