Playoff Tiger

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Allgemein, National League A, SCL Tigers

Five points are there between the Tigers and the last playoff rank! Along side Kloten, the two teams are fighting for the playoffs and are struggling a little with their goal. As Kloten is having a rough time at the moment, we @swisshockeytrolls think that the chances for the Tigers are slightly better. But will the team from Langnau be able to increase its effort in order to fight for the last playoff rank?… continue reading

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Allgemein, National League A, National League B

The NHL Winter Classic has made its way into the schedule of every season in North America. It attracts a huge amount of spectators with every game and  it seems that every NHL franchise is hosting its own Winter Classic nowadays. A huge success in North America, but what succeeded in the NHL hasn’t made its way into our schedule. Should some NLA teams think of another try? And where could this work?… continue reading

Underestimated NLA Stars

There are a lot of talented players on Swiss ice right now and that is why our league is considered in being the third best league in Europe, behind the Swedish Hockey League and the KHL. Not only because of extremely talented foreign players, but also Swiss NLA stars that haven’t made it into the NHL and are enriching our small, but highly skilled league.

Dropping Kloten

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Allgemein, EHC Kloten Flyers, National League A

With 42 points won after 34 regular season games the team from Kloten is situated behind Davos on the ninth rank. After an outstanding start into the season, the team of Pekka Tirkkonen has dropped and there is no salvation in sight. Is this the expected outcome after the team had to decrease its budget under the new leadership of Lehmann? We have analysed the situation and know if there is hope for the playoffs in Kloten.… continue reading

What changed for Bern?

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Allgemein, National League A, SC Bern

The SC Bern is the current Swiss champion, but still their last regular season was a disaster! Only a better goal difference than Lausanne (9th rank) spared the team from the capital city from the play-out rounds. And this season we can see a completely different SC Bern. After 33 games played, Bern has already won more points than last regular season after 50 games played. This made us wonder, what has changed for Bern in order to make them more successful during the regular season?continue reading
