Meanwhile, not only did Switzerland end up with Silver, but Roman Josi won MVP and Best Defenseman.

And Julien Vauclair also made the team of the tournament .

I was gutted we missed the semi-final and final, French TV didn't bother to broadcast it, but I did log in for updates every now and again.

Incredible tournament by the Swiss, let's hope for a replay at the olympics.

My only question for Sean Simpson; why play Gerber in goal? From the games I saw, Berra was having the better championship and got the shut-out in the semi against the USA. Maybe it was pre-arranged to alternate them?

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Goalies are normally alternated because, unlike the other players, they normally play the entire match, and are thus too wrecked to play in two consecutive matches.

I questioned a couple of his decisions. All round he couched a great team and a great tournament. A big congrats to the Swiss for Silver (I'm just recovering now :P).

I would say it was a close game, but the Sedins finally started to play well with the team, and Sweden is a strong team--they made sure to capitalize on any small mistake the Swiss made.
Personally I would not have pulled the goalie when he did. The Swiss were well behind on faceoffs, and already had a man advantage. I would have waited for after the faceoff until they had control to bring on the 2 man advantage. There would still have been 3 mins to try and tie it up and win in overtime. (Cue Boston knocking out Toronto ).

Of course hindsight is 20:20 for us arm-chair coaches. Game was fun to watch, although some Swiss fans at the pubs, border hooligan attitudes which is a big awkward. Time to hit the golf courses till training camp!

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

With the Stanley Cup finals starting tomorrow, I have a question for the NHL afficionados amongst us; how do they determine home-ice advantage? Is it based purely on the respective teams' results over the regular season? Wouldn't that be a little unfair if one division was consistently stronger than the other?
I've never been a huge follower of the NHL, but have followed more closely this year, mainly because of the growing Swiss contingent in the NHL plus a few familiar names from the lock-out.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Yes, as they have a superior regular season points total, Chicago have the ice.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

I think Chicago will win, but if Tuukka Rask from Boston plays as well as he did against Pittsburgh, then Chicago might be in trouble. I'm going with Chicago in 6 games. Glad to see some people talking about hockey!

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Hawks still favourites in my eyes, and have been inproving every game so far - looked excellent in semi final against a big powerful kings outfit.

Hawks in 6 for me too, with either of the goalies getting the conn smythe unless Kane or Krejci hits 10 points this series.

Well that was some game. I thought Boston looked stronger throughout (all 3 periods of) OT, but the double deflection did for them.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Who's going to win game 3 tonight? And will it go to overtime again? I'm going to say 3-2 Hawks, game winning goal comes late in the 3rd.

Re: The (Ice) Hockey Thread

Roman Josi gets nailed the other night.



I'd like to say typical Swiss playing style, but he should have more than enough experience with the North American style.

The corners are where all the action takes place, and if you're prepared to take the puck into the corners, for god sake, keep your head up.

No idea what "an" "other" or "Roy" means. Presumably abusive.
