Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

It's been a horrible few months for the hockey world with all the tragedies. Such a sad day for so many families. Some very nice people on the list that will be missed by everyone who knew them.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

I see that ESPN America have lost the NHL rights. It doesn't look like Teleclub are broadcasting it either.

Is there anywhere on the Swiss media that will be covering the Show?

Doesn't look like it.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Looks like there's no resolution or deal in the near future for the NHL CBA talks. Bettman is being a tool again IMO. Yet another lockout season might unfortunately happen.

Rumour has it, the pros are looking to Europe for teams to play with in the case of a Lockout season. Will we see some of the greatest hockey players in the world playing for CH teams? Have to stay positive :P

Joe Thornton and Rick Nash have an agreement with HC Davos in case of a lockout. Other players would follow me thinks.

That's great news! Love seeing the NHL players in Euro-swag. Reminds me of the lockout back in 94, when Dougie Gilmour was playing here in CH.

Last time there were 48 Players from the NHL playing in Switzerland. If it comes to a lockout this year it will be less than that because the NHL season could start with a delay during the season. The risk that all NHL players will return from one day to the other is high.

Only Thornton and Nash have a contract with Davos. Some of the Swiss in the NHL are bound to a swiss club (Rafael Diaz, Damien Brunner to Zug).
All others have shown interest to play in Switzerland, some will have to play in the AHL. We will have to wait til after September 15th to see who is coming to either Switzerland, the KHL or other countries.

Interestingly enough, such issues are a part of why there might be an NHL lockout.

Every time it's CBA discussion time, it ends up limiting the successful teams in hockey rich areas to promote the poor teams in the desert. Whether it be salary cap, blocking potential owners from moving backrupt teams etc. etc.

Kinda appreciate the system here not being as money based as in North America, but it could be heading in that direction as well.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

On Saturday ZSC played Kloten at Kolping Arena, the Z triumphing 3-4.

After the game around midnight on Saturday night a group of 30-40 Kloten 'fans' turned up at S'ips pub in Oerlikon (a popular haunt for ZSC fans) and severely beat up an 18 year old ZSC fan.

The kid is in hospital in critical condition with a fractured skull.

A 23 year old from Bulach is in custody and the prosecutor is building a case.

Unfortunately there are certain to be repurcussions, the ZSC ultras are raging about this.

Absolutely ridiculous and pathetic. I know that the caliber of hockey here isn't as good as the NHL, but the fans are definitely a few millenia of evolution behind. Really shocking how they some how decided to adopt the 'hooligan' aspects from british football fans (I'm assuming) and it caught on. The average hockey fans in the NHLs are all amicable even if they cheer for rivals and would dislike each other outside of hockey. It's a game back home that really brings people together. Pathetic!

Off that rant, I'm interested to see the influence or change of game style, that the NHLers on strike will bring (if any). Looking forward to maybe catching a few games, but really don't want to deal with "the average swiss fan"

Come off it, all teams have a minority of fans who are utter dickheads, but to treat all fans the same is just insulting.
At least the Swiss don't riot in the streets when they win, or lose, a championship.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

As much as I love NHL hockey, I could upload tens of YouTube clips of fan fights during the game in the stands, let alone outside in a suburb away from the rink! Pens-flyers, Leafs-Canadiens, bruins- Canadiens etc etc

What happened in oerlikon was disgusting, but the NHL ain't no bed of roses either.

It definitely happens, won't deny that, but per population of fanbase, it's essentially negligible.

From my experience, I've never seen riot police at an NHL game, and I've seen them at every NLA game I've gone to---and they were busy. Maybe seen one or two fans kicked out of an NHL game but at NLA games I seem them aggressively and combatively wrestled out. And finally, I've always seen fans of both teams mixed in the audience, jokes and amicably heckling each other having a great time. At NLA matches I've seen separate entrances with entirely separate pathways to the stadium to keep the fans apart.

When was the last time there was a full scale riot after a Swiss team won, or lost, the Ice Hockey championship?

That is absolutely not true. I've been to countless games in Fribourg, as well as Bern, Lausanne, Zurich, Ambri and Lugano. Apart from the designated organised fan-clubs areas, without exception, other fans have been mixed throughout the stadia. I've even stood amongst the SCB fans and not had any problems, apart from a bit of friendly banter. If you know your Swiss hockey, Fribourg-Gottéron and SCB is one of the hottest rivalries in Swiss hockey.
Yes, I have also witnessed fan trouble, but never to the extent of full scale riots in the city centre. That is something pretty much unique to North America.
