They won the title 3 years ago, and lost the final by a small margin in 2002. Last year they were not that good anymore, finishing the regular season as 4th (or 5th?), and losing in the quarterfinals of the PO.

There are at least 3 teams (Bern, Lugano, ZSC) with bigger budgets than Davos.

I can't imagine that, unless they got some private sponsors. That's just out of reach for a Swiss team. I really think these players sign for bargain prices. During the last lockout there were even NHLers coming over here to practice with Swiss teams (especially Jursinow's), without being employed at all.

I second that, swiss teams are not as rich as some of you seem to think. We don't have any information about player salaries, but the best paid players are said to earn between 400'000 and 500'000 US$.

What about Ville Peltonen? He is rumored to earn CHF 1.000.000 (which equals about $780.000) at Lugano.

I guess Peltonen and Christian Dubé are the best paid players in the league, and I heard they earn between 700'000 and 800'000 CHF. There's no way to know.

nah...the NLA is better than the DEL, that's for sure. they have better foreigner because most teams have more money.
when a NHL player decides to play in the NLA instead of germany, it's all about the money.
look at marco sturm. he got a few offers by NLA teams and now it's possible that he won't come home to germany.
DEL is better than NLA, for sure! Please compare the complete roosters and not only top 3 players. If there would be a leauge with all DEL and all NLA Teams, best NLA Team would rank about 4-5.

Dany Heatley will announce where he will play in case of a lockout in the next two or three weeks.
He will either play in the NLA or DEL, although I doubt any DEL team has enough money to pay him.

Is Fritsche not eligable to go back to the AHL? If thats the case then the league needs to look into making some exceptions. He barely played for the Jackets when he was with them the first part of the year.

JM liles of the avalanche to kassel huskies of the DEL. it's so far semi-official because the official press-release is missing. and i doubt that he will play here instead of the AHL, but we have to wait and see.

It's official. He wont play any preseason games because of his insurance, but he is already in training with the team. Awesome signing!!

yes and no. i'd rather have a defender who'd play the whole season for sure. but nevertheless liles should be the most talented guy ever to dress for kassel, so it's really exciting.

Wow, Krog is an excellent addition for the Austrian club. Sure would like to see him in the DEL!

Düsseldorf's coach said, that he is interested in Heatley as well, because he has a german pass. Alternatively Marcel Goc or Olaf Kölzig.

I already posted in another thread, that I believe it when I see him on austrian ice. After that jokes about Morrison and Cammalleri I'm warned.

However, the official VSV homepage does (again... bla bla) not say if the deal depends on a lockout or not.

One reliable source told me that Peltonen was not overly expensive.
I was quite surprised that this club didn't make a pitch to get him.
Anyways, I don't think Peltonen makes as much as Dubé.

Frankfurt: Stephane Robidas (Chicago Blackhawks)

Ingolstadt: Marco Sturm (San Jose Sharks), Andy McDonald (Anaheim Mighty Ducks)

Iserlohn: Mike York (Edmonton Oilers)

Mannheim: Jochen Hecht (Buffalo Sabres), Sven Butenschön (New York Islanders), Cristobal Huet (Montreal Canadiens)

Switzerland:

Ambri-Piotta: Dan Fritsche (Columbus Blue Jackets)

HC Davos: Joe Thornton (Boston Bruins), Niklas Hagman (Florida Panthers), Rick Nash (Columbus Blue Jackets)

Lugano: David Aebischer (Colorado Avalanche)
Will Fritsche's club play Nash and HC Davos? Or are they two different teams on two different levels in Switzerland?

Ambri-Piotta and Davos are both NLA teams, so, yes, they will play each other.

Zecke, Martin Gerber signed with Langnau for the duration of the lockout.

Fitsche won't play for Ambrì.

You can add Olli Jokinen to the list as he's playing for Kloten

I couldn't find the reason, but I guess Columbus asked him to stay in their system to give hime more ice time than he would get in Europe.

In related news, Kim Johnsson signed with Ambrì and there is a rumor about Saku Koivu playing for Lugano, but so far it is nothing more than a rumor.
