    I actually don't know what the contract situation with the KHL is.

    Swiss team could be different, but Ambri made a strong case for another invite this year.

    Canada has been very dominant this year... looking great.

    Somebody else here said Ambri-Piotta has been invited back, but I cannot find it on the Spengler site, at the moment.

    As for Ufa, whether it is them or not, KHL will be back next year.

    Wow! Trinec did it! 6am start so I won't watch it... I expect Canada to win but what a great run for Trinec. I had them ranked 6th going in.

    Canada won't be dropped, it's too much a part of the tradition and it has way more cache then another couple of teams from Europe.

    I'm sure the $$$$ for broadcasting rights from TSN goes a long way too.

    At the same time, it's not good if Canada wins every year but they didn't win last year and they looked just as good going into the Final as they do this year so we'll just have to see what happens. That's why they play the games.

    I'll be PVRing it but I expect a pretty clean Canada win... we'll see. They've looked really good this year and Davos had an off tournament.

    I am pretty happy to see an Extraliga team beat a KHL and Swiss Club. Not that I have something against those leagues but we're definitely not as strong as those leagues. Nice surprise.

    Why Kalpa wasn't invited for this year as well ? Usually they invite defending team ?!


    And yes, I agree about Ambri, I had butterflys in my stomach yesterday while watching the game :)

    They have a contract with the Finnish league, where the best team which didn't qualify for the Champions Hockey League gets an automatic invite to the Spengler Cup.

    I think those who criticize this tournament, haven't experienced the atmosphere, great venue in the Alps, the fans are there to have a good time, enjoy some hockey and enjoy the holidays. Just how it should be, nothing more, nothing less.

    I caught the final two periods. It's interesting seeing so many familiar names. Several former WJC players on that team.

    To be fair, they really should have won last year too. “Oh My” Godla completely stole that game.

    So a few days late, but was curious about the money situation for the players. Are they paid based on winning/performance, is it just "part of the job" with their club teams? Searching does not yield much information.

    Apologies for a somewhat off topic memory: Way back in 1962 my family was living for a year in Geneva, Switzerland. That winter I remember seeing posters advertising a hockey tournament featuring a team called “Canadians in Europe.” I asked about it and was told it was a pickup team consisting of Canadians playing for European hockey clubs which would come together for special tournaments. I can’t see any indications that they ever played in the Spengler Cup but perhaps they were, in a way, the ancestors of the present day Spengler Cup Team Canada.
