Spengler Cup vs. World Juniors

One of my favorite times of the year to watch hockey. That great break after christmas to enjoy some Ice-hockey.

For the Hockey fans, which do you follow, the long running Swiss Spengler Cup, or the up and comings World Juniors?

Tough call but for me, the World Juniors has some of the most entertaining hockey to watch

Busy night for Team Canada fans !

I caught an OHL and NHL game earlier this month--and I have to admit, it was a very fresh dose of great hockey compared to the NLA games I've seen. Or perhaps it was good to have hockey fans at a game, and not hockey fans acting like soccer fans at a game.

Nope--that was comparing to the Swiss league. It's great to watch some hockey, but it is IMO sub-par to North American Hockey, and the fans here are just creepy and weird.

Re: Spengler Cup vs. World Juniors

I kinda find the Spengler Cup to be a little fake, sort of "Sports Art on Ice". These hybrid teams are kind of balanced out on paper during the fall season, but they rarely end up playing equally. If you saw Kloten getting blown away yesterday, I'd rest my case.

Kind of a Miss World with fake and real breasts on show, but not performing equally.

A buddy of mine was at the game--and he FB'd on how impressed he was with the whole stadium cheering on the Swiss with: Go Swiss Go!.

(yes they shoulda gone for: Hopp Suisse!, but we can't expect too much)
