    The curse of good did. A training league that exports many players. With the advantage that Finland has many elite players(NHL,KHL, Top-Drafts), but the league will be weaker in the long run.

    I have watched a fair amount of German hockey over the last few years, and the quality is improving every year. They seem to be on the same trajectory as Swiss hockey, although with more goal scoring :).

    Igor Brikun the goalie for Minsk kinda lost it on the fifth goal against, rather bodychecking the goal scorer Justin Schütz than trying to make a save.

    That sequence starts at 2:04 of this video.

    Haha, I got home quite late last night and turned the tv on just in time for a replay of the Minsk goalie sort of giving up on saving the puck and running down Schütz instead. Made me think I was going to need some context here to make sense of that lol.

    Poor guy substituting for him didn't have a great final few minutes either, got on the ice for the 5 min major that followed and got scored on on the first shot.

    It's only available on youtube in those countries that doesn't have the rights to air the tournament. So I assume it's not avilable in Switzerland neither

    Biel almost took out Frölunda there, crazy finish.

    No Swedish team has been eliminated by a non-Swedish team yet.

    Again! Could hardly believe it. They pull these wins out over and over again. But, hey, I'm not complaining.

    Must be a easy to be a fan of a swedish teams in the CHL. Lose=we didnt care, win=party tiem. Its a win win sitiation :D In all honesty though, I think that the SHL-teams are too far ahead of the others as of right now. A big probability that the final is going to be played among the swedes again. 10 finalists so far in this competition, 7 swedish teams, 2 finnish, 1 czech. 0 swiss or german :rolleyes: the czech could tie finns if Mountfield advances, otherwise the swedes make this even more of a landslide. JYP still the only team outside Sweden to win this.

    My memory did not serve me right it seems. But that was the only mistake, take one away from the swedes them. Doesnt change my point though.

    Nice speed and intencity. But kinda simmered off at the end. Ran out of gas most likely and didn't want to give anything away for free. Tightening it up. But entertaining, absolutely.

    I haven't followed too closely but when I see semi final, Champions league, Swedish team and Czech team. I expect a loss.lol Sweden's crazy dominant at this one. Happy for Rucizka as the Czech side is very low scoring and he keeps pulling upset wins.

    We got a Czech liga team to the finals of the Spengler, imagine another one in the Champions league? It'd be a nice little thing for our disorganized liga!

    Was Mountfield the Czech team that said they didn't want to play in the CHL?

    Had the finals been an exclusively swedish affair the interest for it would have been very low. Good to see a Czech team against Frölunda again. That it is being played in Czech rep is also very good for the tourneys future.

    Why is final game in Czech and not Sweden ? Wasn't Frolunda better ranked team than HK ?
