What a Playoff Team would you rather have? A Team full of Talent? Or a Team full of character? You can win if you have one, but another is not?
these are the big issues in today's volleyball . In the National Hockey League the mighty Pittsburgh Penguins, the Team of Sidney Crosby and winner of two Stanley Cups in the last three years, were swept by the New York Islanders in four Games out of the Playoff. And the Dominators from Tampa Bay were destroyed by the Columbus Blue Jackets, the number 13 of the Regular Season. The adversities that come with Playoff hockey, for this highly talented team to much.
This trend I am also in the Swiss football. It has become the usual title favourites more difficult to assert their supremacy. The ZSC Lions and Lugano and HC Davos, the whole season was only a shadow of their best days. All three of them could not adjust to modern hockey or you didn't want it. Arno Del Curto and Chris McSorley, the coach icons and driving forces of the Body play in the Swiss ice hockey, have a front hand-no coaching jobs. A Generation of the majority of the Northern coaches has taken over.
Learn to win
The SCB managed to combine Talent and character so that he came through. However, with great effort. Against Servette Bern himself dug a pit, made it but only just, resulting in climb out. Against Biel they were rescued by Leonardo Genoni. Finally, they found their legs in a stunning Final against a strangely disoriented EV Zug .
I was in this Playoff, the feeling that every Team plays more or less the same. If you can put pressure on the Puckführenden, you do it. If not, to make the neutral Zone and waits. In the fifth final game of the SCB prior to checked a single Time when the Zug had the Puck. However, these played only with the necessary Enthemmtheit, as it was already too late. And if you tried to check the strong Berner, it looked as if a Smart went into a off-roader. Zuger gave while honest effort, but they were not convinced that they will win for were intended to. Therefore, they are not performing to their full potential.

Every future Champion must first win to learn, and the ECC is no exception. All the title contenders would have enough Talent to be the Swiss champion, but not the strength of character. The most glaring example, the ZSC Lions. I've decided that I look at again a game from them, if you manage to entertain me. Not necessarily by winning, but with dedication and passion. I'm not going to go into the indoor stadium, until they finally decided whether and for whom to play you intend. Until then, I'm fine looking at a football match.
is The Zug were to nice
"character teams" to compensate for their weaknesses with enthusiasm, tenacity and resilience. And the SCB has shown in the last three years, Kari Jalonen most of these qualities. Yes, the Bernese have the most experienced Center (Arcobello), the game's strongest defenders (sander) and the best Goalie (Genoni). But these are also surrounded by personalities to Shine which allows you. Never underestimate their influence!
If the ECC can borrow would be for the Final Scherwey, he would become a master.
I think, if the ECC can borrow would be for the Final, Tristan Scherwey, he would become a master. Zuger were simply too nice. Scherwey is not scored only goals, but also ensured everywhere for unrest in the enemy. And Thomas Rüfenacht and Simon Moser opened with your body game the rooms for Arcobello. This is also a Talent. Where was actually, Johan Morant, as the ECC needed a boost? Has Jesse Zgraggen anyone checked in the Final? To be nice, bring a not too far in a Playoff Final.
The price is sometimes very high
most of The Swiss hockey fans, the trailer is not Bern -, expressed in the Final of the EVZ, the thumb. Not because you have something against the SCB, but because they wanted to finally see a different Team win. I think that will come soon. Martin Steinegger is to find the right Mix of players to dethrone the city of Berne. Lausanne is constantly better. And the ZSC Lions can't be more worse. If the Berner are now at a standstill, you will be overrun.
And that is exactly what I love on hockey, anywhere in the world. The best, the most talented team can be beaten. It all boils down to who wants the Puck more. Who is ready to pay the price. And this price is sometimes very high. But at the end of the day, he is almost always worth it. (Editorial Tamedia)
