    Spengler Cup Spengler Cup 2017

    The edition which could include returns of USA/Russia national teams. We could have the Chinese franchise. A lot of exciting rumours, which were confirmed by the TSN crew at the games.

    So, I'll go with:
    Davos
    Canada
    USA
    Kunlun Red Star
    Zug
    Adler Mannheim/Red Bull München

    Altough they like they're 2 KHL teams, so I'm not holding my breathe. Maybe a few years back rumoured Barys Astana?

    HPK and Mountfield confimed! This was a huge surprise to me. Never thought that a Liiga club would participate, but apparently it's happening. Mountfield is coming back from last year and obviously HPK's first appearance in the Spengler Cup.

    So far:
    Davos
    Team Canada
    HPK
    Mountfield

    There was information in local media saying Dinamo Riga and Swiss national team also will participate.

    It would be good for Riga to compete. They signed up Ozo as coach and then go to Spengler Cup! Get some interest back after the last few horrible seasons

    Hey ho!

    We have a week to go and 91th Spengler Cup would start.

    I'm excited cause we're going to have Finnish participants in HPK and obviously going to root for them. Other notable figures are that Canada has been shown themselves in 4 different tournaments through the year, but this time there will be no KHL players invited (what I heard) so they have a lot of new guys to show and maybe grab a spot from the Olympic squad.

    Also, Swiss NT is back and personally I'm interrsted if they decide to ice a strong team or a weaker one to test younger players, but you should be certain that Canada is once again here to win.

    Mountfield (Hradec Kralove) have had a solid year so far and I'm luxuous to see what they bring on the table in much stronger group (my opinion).

    Davos haven't won since 2011 which feels like ages ago! Already signed Sallinen, Morin and Lofquist for the tournament so they look dangerous to make it all the way.

    Dinamo Riga, well they've been hugely miserable without no sign of better, but actually in December they've won more than lost so they are coming in streak and I bet for sure wanting to host the trophy and get even some triumph.

    For me looks like strong team case this season.

    I am very interested to see if Dinamo Riga will manage to grab any points un tournament. Now they have long and tough away series against KHL Asia region teams.

    True. Coming to Christmas they're on the far East trip which is very hard and tiring because of all traveling. That's why I'm predicting the group being weaker.

    Aldo, Hockey Canada released their team and there will actually be a little of KHL representation:

    Dynamo Riga beats HPK in Overtime with 4:3, the Latvians took the lead three times but the Finns levelled it each time with a PP goal. In OT Miks Indrasis seals the deal with an accurate shot from the high slot with the man advantage.

    Davos vs. Hradec Kralove up in the evening game.

    I think in english correct names for these KHL clubs:

    Dinamo Riga (Dinamo Rīga in latvian)
    Dynamo Moscow (Динамо Москва in russian)

    Group stage is done! As expected both NT's are on a roll and would not be surprised if meeting on New Years Eve. As of clubs, hosts look like a contender and could be that, but I see that as a possibility only if both NT's play each other before the final. Dinamo Riga well, they came from far east trip and couldn't find they're feet in the first game, but saved points in OT win against HPK who sadly is icing the weakest team in the tournament and will be eliminated tomorrow. Miracle not happening. In the other QF I don't see a favorite. Altough Indrasis-Darzins could drag themselves to semis.

    Fantastic hockey all around again!

    Wow! Davos absolutely collapsed in pieces in the 3rd and there was just one team on ice. In the first semifinal Canada did what was needed, but again both were really entertaining to watch! Sad that it will be over for a year, but let's all of us enjoy the final day as we have the NT clash coming up!

    CAN - SUI 3-0

    1-0 12 Zach Boychuk (56 Maxim Noreau, 19 Andrew Ebbett)
    2-0 56 Andrew Ebbett (78 Victor Bartley, 11 Jay McClement)
    3-0 7 David McIntyre

    What (who) were the difference? Kevin Poulin. He didn't let anything in and it did culminate to Brunner's chance in the end. Empty net, Poulin's down, bit still he managed to get his pad in the way! So it came down to goalies and 2 easy goals against Genoni made it!

    Congrats Canada on the triple!

    Is this Swiss NT the one that will play in the Olympics or can we expect a significantly different team in Korea?

    With no NHL-ers it is...although Fischer rested some (top) players today like Hollenstein, Praplan, Suter.
