It's a Sunny 8. April in the southern Ticino. Sami will be presented Kapanen as the new Lugano-Trainer, and 20 minutes to advance to the catacombs of the Corner-Arena open. Around 9.10 PM, Alessio Bertaggia is on the way for the first run of training on the new season. Ten days have passed since 0:4-Viertelfinalout the Bianconeri against train.
scene change: On Saturday, Alessio Bertaggia in Weinfelden occurs in front of the microphone of the RSI. To explain the course of the summer training, but his state of mind after the world Cup selection. The son of the defender-legend Sandro is one of the winners of the preparation. He scored four goals in five missions, and convinced the national coach. "Some were surprised that I got him for the preparation for seven years," says Patrick Fischer, "but he is fast, fearless and body stresses, a Hockey, I like that. He has proven week in and week out and be Ticket worthy."
Kuraschew and Janis Moser convinced
Two other, prior to the beginning of the preparation, no one had on the bill, Philipp Kuraschew and Janis Moser. Defenders Moser is the shooting star of the season and confirmed its benefits in the Biel international. Raphael Diaz, the Years defended in the last two matches with the 18 -, is impressed: "He is extremely advanced for his age. You'd think he is shy, but it is not so. He takes a lot of responsibility, that's cool."
And Kuraschew, wrote in March for three years in Chicago, convinced by disc security and game overview. Fischer is especially pleased that "two players of the U-20 national team in the same year, can on the A-WM. This is great for our product, your development me enormously happy."
next low blow for Hollenstein
At the other end of the emotional scale, Denis Hollenstein. The striker of the ZSC Lions played in Weinfelden long on the side of Gaëtan Haas and Vincent Praplan, didn't make the jump into the Team but as a defender Andrea Glauser and Samuel, and striker Marco Müller (thumb fracture).
"Just on the wing positions, we have very much choice," said Fischer, "because the weeks - or even days the form is often the deciding factor. Others were now a little hotter than he is." For the 29-Year-old personal slump continues: In the previous year, he could as a Captain with the EHC non-Kloten avoid the descent, and not played at the world Cup due to injury.
this year he was in the first year in Oerlikon, while Topskorer, missed the Team but the Playoff. Be WM-Out means that the Zurich defeat series will be extended for another Chapter, one with a historical Dimension: in 1982 for the B-Cup in Klagenfurt was the last time no player of ZSC or Kloten in the squad, the coach was Let Lilja.
Who comes from the NHL?
of the 25 players listed in the provisional world Cup squad, it is possible that the NHL is still the one or other reinforcement. The most likely candidate Dean Kukan and Sven Andrighetto, who stood in their quarter-final series to 2:3 in the residue (: Monday, 6 are. May). With Luca Sbisa Fischer has not spoken in the night on Saturday after the departure of the New York Islanders, he comes. A world Cup participation by Timo Meier is unrealistic, because he is waiting for a big contract. And Nino Niederreiter don't have to retire with Carolina after the surprising semi-final qualification already very fast, so he could still become the topic with him, Fischer is expecting but.
The Zug is the quality also so convinced, even in comparison to the silver team of the year: "We are faster, a year older and more Mature. We have three Topgoalies, good defender, can also play a first-Pass, and a lot of attacking players that can make all the difference." (Editorial Tamedia)
