    I just love this tournament. All of Team Canada's (and the Final) games are on reg. TV here, and I basically plan my attendance at holiday events (and have been doing so for about 10 years now, so my family is used to it) around the TV schedule for this and WJC. The "hockey festival" atmosphere created by the Davos club and the Swiss fans is something I would like to see more of in NA.

    One of these years, I will make it across to see it live.

    Canada's TSN is reporting that 40 year old goaltender Curtis Joseph, who has not played this season, has been quietly getting in shape, and will be announced as Canada's starting goaltender for the Spengler Cup. He is hoping to use the tournament as a warm-up for a return to the NHL, and rumors say Pittsburgh may be interested in him.

    Great tournament with some of the best (and loudest) hockey fans in the most beautiful country in Europe. Yes, I am always looking forward to the Spengler Cup. Hope it will be broadcasted on our local sports tv-station again this year.

    I wish they'd televise it in the U.S.

    Instead, I get to see clips on the internet.

    i always thought team canada was a collection of european based canadian players, but it's mostly NLA based canadians with a few others sprinkled in. makes total sense with the location of the tournament, but i didn't know until now.

    Didn't Canada's entry one year consist of an AHL team? I'm thinking the Manitoba Moose may have gone as the team. I know back in the late 70's the Winnipeg Jets of the WHA participated in this tournament.

    I am surprised at the amount of former NHL players on this roster. Typically, the Spengler Cup roster is a complete unknown to me aside from a couple former WJC Canadians and perhaps a name from the WHL I recognize.

    I've often wondered how this tournament is perceived in the grand scheme of things in Europe? Is this tournament the tournament to win as far as international club tournaments or is this more along the lines of the Red Bulls Salute in September, where it doesn't mean to much to win or lose at it?

    I know this is sort of unrelated, but I remember Canada used to participate at the Izvestia Cup. Is that tournament still around and if so is it less important than it used to be?

    Izvestia Cup now is the First Channel Cup and it's part of the Euro Hockey Tour.

    Those two entries would have been entries of the AHL and WHA respectively, and not Canada's. Canada's entry is run through Hockey Canada, which the AHL and WHA are not a part.

    As for the former NHLers, if they're playing in the Swiss league, then they're going to be pretty obvious choices. That should give you a pretty good idea as to how attractive the Swiss NLA has become.

    Team Canada will change because after the games of the week-end in NLA, Hnat Domenichelli and Jeff Toms are injured (for a while). Let's see who will join the team (I think Josh Holden from Langnau and Martin Sonnenberg from Ambrì-Piotta could be a good option).

    Pretty grueling schedule for an exhibition tournament....the finalists will end up playing 5 games in 6 nights, inlcuding 3 games in 3 nights. That's really tough by any standard.

    Well, I'll gladly absorb all of Team Canada's share to make sure they can pull off the win :P
    I'll even enjoy the hangover once it's all over.

    Maybe the Toronto Maple Leafs can play the 2008 Spengler Cup so they have a chance to win something. Of course, they'd find a way to lose.

    Pardubice scores on a rebound to take a 1-0 lead against Canada in the 1st.
    Curtis Joseph, who hasn't played this year, has looked pretty good, making a few really impressive saves, and Canada's had some good pressure, but Lasak's been solid for Pardubice and they take the lead.

    Mostly as simple exhibition tournament.

    Sergei Mikhailev, Salavat's coach, said today that Salavat is having a relaxed attitude to the Spengler Cup. The primary objective is to play beautiful hockey and avoid injuries, not to win the tournament. As further indications of this, Salavat will rest a number of key players and the players have been allowed to take their wifes and kids with them to Switzerland.

    Pardubice had made it 2-0, Rolinek coming out of the penalty box and getting the breakaway pass, beating Joseph through the fivehole, but right after Canada scored to make it 2-1.
    Then it was 2-2 with a perfect cross-crease pass, and that's how it stands now.

    We're seeing a parade to the penalty box, both teams taking lots of penalties, but Pardubice especially getting a LOT of calls. Many of those are hooking and triping, lazy penalties because the Canadians are just skating around them and the Czechs can't keep up.
    Game's getting a little chippy now, shoving matches after the whistles.

    That, and I must say I'm not so impressed with this broadcast crew for Sportsnet. As far as I know, Jan Lasak's last name is not pronounced "Halleck" (or, as I imagine the colour-commentator thought, Halak). Also, saying "you've seen one Swiss city, you've seen them all", even if it's a joke, when your tone of voice is not joking, that's just a stupid thing to say.

    Canada off a faceoff, wins the puck to the point and JP Vigier at the side of the net makes it 3-2.
    Canada got off to its usual slow start in the first period (expected from a team that hasn't played together before), but have really come together to dominate thus far in the second. Pardubice are having trouble getting out of their end, and Canada's just got the pressure set to "max".

    Pardubice tied the game 3-3, and it remained that way after a 5 minute overtime.

    The game went to penalty shots, which Canada won 2-0.

    Final score:

    CANADA 4, PARDUBICE 3

    How did Pardubice play? I guess they have other things on their mind considering they are in deep shit in their domestic league.

    They have a fairly good team on paper, but they have been playing too inconsistently in the O2 Extraliga

    Well, Karsten, inconsistent is definitely the right word.
    That, and undisciplined. Pardubice had their moments where they would work hard to get chances, then they would just disappear for 10-minute stretches, get completely outskated, and then take stupid hooking and holding penalties because of it
    That being said, Canada wasn't at the top of their game, but they did get generally better as the game went on. By the time they play Salavat, I expect them to be in much better form, and then look out!

    Sorry, Steigs, I had no idea....you should have warned us!

    Look at the bright side, you at least get the games on TV - they're unavailable in the USA, at least here in New York. I was following the live ticker from the Spengler Cup website while I was at the office catching up on some paperwork this afternoon.

    I'll end up catching internet clips after the fact.

    For an exhibition tournament, the Spengler Cup seems to be very well attended.

    I didn't know myself until you went and posted the final score during the second intermission heheh
    Sportsnet has the games here, so if you can find a stream for them maybe...

    Spengler Cup is the big event in the small town of Davos. It basically puts them at the center of Swiss hockey's consciousness for just a short while, and by that I mean the town, not just the team. That, and the Canadian fans who always make the trip (my dad and I would love to do that some year)

    Salavat leading Moeller in the very end of 2nd period 3:0. And picture of the game tells it all: bye-bye Pardubice!

    Been doing some newsreporter job on Estonian Kalev Sport TV channel and commenting the games live. Tonight will continue with Team Canada vs. HC Davos.

    Nice hockey season... ;)

    Salavat Ufa wins 5:0 vs Pardubice.They can play even much better that they showed today so I belive they get the finale and win the Spengler Cup.

    Canada left nothing unclear... Davos was beaten 6:2 and looks like Pardubice and Davos are really far away from Final. Canada looked much better than in game 1.

    Thanks for the updates, ahtikullervo. Yes, it looks like another Canadian-Russian showdown, but look out for the Adlers. They have a good team and their coach know how to win the Spengler Cup.

    Remember that Team Canada is hte only one that isn't a club team. Sounds like they were really starting to jel today, and if that continues (as it usually does for them after slow starts) then we are indeed well on our way to a Canada-Salavat final.
