Viewpoint: pity pleijareissa no sympathy for, but in SM-league's image, they tarnish badly
The playoffs in the first round too name a shame pleijarit is unfair, write to Vesa Parviainen.Under the 20-year-olds this season's world champion Sam Vainionpää (vas.) solved Wildcat win in overtime. Pottery Jääskeläinen

SM-league was introduced to the playoffs in the first round of the regular season in place for 7-10 end up for the team for the season 2003-2004. People's mouth hasty best of three series has established "a shame pleijareista".


Espoo already in the league of gone the Blues did the trick in 2011 and 2012. The first time it proceeded to sensationally up to finals until - as the only so far.

the Last semi-finals has been able to pity pleijari work with as a team to beat the BRONCOS two years ago.

the Lock, in turn, is the only team that has advanced to the semifinals of the regular season in tenth place. A miracle happened in the spring of 2013, when the rauma fries dropped in the quarterfinals of the regular season number one Jokers.


a pity pleijarit is of course as much as the song name, also playful and easier to pronounce nickname than the League itself used by the gobbledygook of the ”play-offs of the first round”.

the Official name would suit more to the point though the playoff-qualifying, when the other qualifiers not in the closed series dare to organize.


the sporty feel sorry for are anything but pathetic. The stakes are immediately opened the game on a high, when the season can end in just over a day.

see you on the Ice real playoff battle. It's like a different species at times numb to the regular season the toil of compared to.


Lock got the frame a series of eight final home games of their more than 4,000 spectators and once sold out the hall (4700). Saturday's playoff-opening a young team beating an experienced jyp's 5-1 only 3018 front - and that reading seemed a bright yellow shine non-empty bench on the basis of be the air.

Also SaiPan defeated the Lynx missed the season home average value (5042), while the playoff-start a dramatic overtime win to prove in the gallery to the alert according to the 4805 look.


Partly the question might be this. Many reel thriller wait first, how sääleistä, and leaves the hall only then, if your favorite team's games still continue.

a pity pleijarien understatement has led to the fact that they are considered a bit... well, pointless games.


Something should the league and the clubs marketing side to come up. Should although ticket prices to bargain for better atmosphere and brand image to ensure?

But it would help? Whether with pity reputation already too pathetic?



the latter Two rounds JYP was in Rauma in the washing machine, that it needs to mankeloinnista in order to recover and a series of yet to turn the tide of the real miraakkelin. Teams in motion was even incredibly large difference in the Lock's favor.

If the Lock takes hold, it encounters the quarter-finals of the regular season two Began. Then the Lynx - or SaiPan, if it wins the next two games - as destiny would have all-time point record of the Weasels an appetizer.

the Other two to match the pair's survived already the regular season: Pelicans-HIFK and TPS-HPK.
