How many Swiss are there?
In theory eight: two in Nashville (Roman Josi, Yannick Weber) at Carolina (Nino Niederreiter), San Jose (Timo Meier), Colorado (Sven Andrighetto), Columbus (Dean Kukan), Washington (Jonas Siegenthaler) and the New York Islanders (Luca Sbisa).
Just, there's three defenders limitations: Sbisa has played in 2019 in a game (12. January), otherwise he has not been used. Kukan played just 25 NHL games. After all, he has developed just prior to the Playoff for the ordinary power, was, in nine of the last ten games. Siegenthaler shuttled finally, between the NHL and AHL, was 26 emergence of change "at the top". In March, he spent in the farm team, but just on the Playoff, he is back.
defender Josi, as well as the striker Niederreiter and Meier are among the Top performers of their Teams, attackers Andrighetto, however, must fight harder in order to use minutes as well. And defender Weber must impose after a violation, once more, for a regular place.
Which Swiss ensures the greatest attention, and goes the farthest?
Washington (Siegenthaler) and Nashville (Josi/Weber) won their divisions, San José (Meier) and the Islanders (Sbisa) were Second. Because Sbisa is unlikely to play, and the roles of victory Thaler, and Weber's are open, are likely to make it to the paper by Meier and Josi, who will be the most eye-catching Swiss. But how often it runs in the Playoff after the paper form? Just that: rare.
The form of strong Niederreiter is part of the euphorisierten Hurricanes, the play thanks to a final spurt for the first time since the 2009 Playoff. You are anything other than a desire opponent for the defending champion Washington to Superstar Ovechkin. Siegenthaler, would be in this series, the only Swiss duel in round 1. The other enemies of the Swiss: Nashville encounters Dallas, San Jose to Vegas, the Islanders in Pittsburgh. At Colorado (Calgary) and Columbus (Tampa) waiting for the number 1 Teams of the Western, respectively. Eastern Conference, so a Herculean task.
Who's the title favorite?
The paper form may be such a thing. But Tampa has dominated the Regular Season (62 wins in 82 Games, 21 points ahead), that it can actually be a real favorite. With Kukans Columbus a delicate task but already in round 1. The Blue Jackets made at the Transfer Deadline, with aggressive bartering, picked up several good veterans at the expense of the future (Draft-rights and young players) - and this despite the fact that Columbus, at that time, even on a Playoff spot. Jarmo Kekäläinen, the only European head of sports, in the NHL, went to the pay off with Columbus so "All in" - whether?
what series is it worth it to also have an eye?
Boston against Toronto. It's only the big traditional clubs (both "Original 6 not to collide"), but also different philosophies: in Toronto with the young stars Marner, Nylander, Matthews, and Kapanen, and leader figure, Tavares was with 286 hits one of the offensively potent Teams, the team of star coach Mike Babcock was on the defensive but very vulnerable. In contrast to the Boston Bruins, the only 215 goals and 36 less conceded than Toronto. With Marchand, Pastrnak, Bergeron, Krejci, De Brusk or defenders jug, Boston has a lot of Offensive Power.
